Hello you lovely people,
What can I say, but its good to be back…we haven’t really gone away, but taking a small break from playing live gave us more time to focus on new tunes and glad to say we are very excited about what we have achieved, so far…
Anyway, more exciting news very soon but the reason for reaching out to you all now is something we are over the moon to be involved with.
SATURDAY 16th FEBRUARY we are supporting the Grammy nominated Cedric Burnside playing at McChuills in Glasgow
Also on the bill is Glasgow band Hicks
Now an artist in his own right, emerging from the huge shadow of his drum kit where he sat for his “Big Daddy” grandfather RL Burnside. His first album with Lightnin Malcolm as part of the 2 Man Wrecking Crew was a statement of where he was going. 10 years later as a Grammy nominated artist for last years album Benton County Relic. Played at the 2018 Edinburgh Blues Festival (as did Dixie Fried).
If you know anything about Dixie Fried as a band, then RL Burnside has had a MASSIVE influence on where we come from style wise. Hill Country Blues music is our foundation, and where we build all our tunes from. In fact the album Burnside on Burnside still remains as one of our very favourite live albums.
Tickets are still available on this link

Hello you lovely people,
ON SUNBURST AND THUMP, our third studio album is being released on Friday 9th February on all digital platforms (apple music, amazon, spotify, deezer etc...).
We have no intention on producing this on CD, but instead we are offering a top quality package with details below.
We have a limited amount of the very best quality of 12" VINYL that money can buy. 180g vinyl, recorded on 24 bit 44100Hz. To partner this amazing looking (and sounding) record we have a 12 page A5 lyric booklet, and filled with images of everything that has brought us to this point in our musical journey.
The package looks great but it feels even better, and we are over the moon the way it catches exactly everything we have put into this.
Normal retail price is £15
BUT, if purchased on our pre-sale offer during the month of December then the first 50 we are offering at just £12 (plus post and packaging) AND we promise to have the whole thing delivered to you for the very latest of week commencing January the 16th - almost a whole month prior to the worldwide digital release.
Also every purchase of vinyl will receive a FREE DOWNLOAD code for you to have in whatever format suits your needs - or you could even gift the download to a friend.
This offer is available from 1st December until the first 50 are gone. However, we already have a list of people wanting the vinyl copy so please do not hesitate.

A quick run down of the summer highlights...we got to play in some of our very favourite places, Almost Blue Dundee, Dreadnought Bathgate, Belladrum, supporting Miracle Glass Company and last but certainly not least Jocktoberfest at the Black Isle Brewery. A truly special summer, thank you to all who came to see us again, and also those that found their way into the Dixie Fried groove, we hope it is one you will enjoy for a long time.
We are desperate to get this album out as we have some great things happening all over it. We have invested everything we can to make it sound as good as we can. Spent many many hours pouring over every detail, from every note and drum beat, to artwork getting the right tone and angle, to even arguing over the bit rate that digital distributors will accept. We are very emotionally attached to this in making it the very best we can, and hope that transfers over to the music.
Release date will be announced in the next month, as we are busy working out some finer details to make it even more special for those that are with us on our journey to our THIRD ALBUM RELEASE !!!
As we have said right from the start...'Keep it Dixie y'all'
