OBN IIIs are back! There is no one I get more pumped to see play live than Mr. Orville Bateman Neeley III. The surly and snarling lead singer of OBN IIIs is incapable of delivering a disappointing live performance. Each show is an event but his commanding presence wouldn’t mean a god damn thing if the music didn’t match his rage and intensity. If you’ve ever listened to an OBN IIIs record, you know these guys are no one trick phonies. They deliver both in the studio and on the stage, each and every time.
The band is now set to release their fourth studio album, Worth A Lot Of Money, on September 14 via 12XU Records and I’m pleased to say it’s another brilliant collection of pure rock and roll. I would expect nothing less from
Austin’s America’s best band. Not to say this album is simply more of the same. Oh no. Not at all. This is a “the more things change, the more they stay the same” situation. Since their last record, Third Time To Harm, the group has a new guitarist, bassist, and record label. Orville decided to completely reboot the band and the incredible thing is, he actually pulled it off. The new album is packed with fury, fun, and everything else I’d expect from the OBN IIIs. The lesson, as always, is don’t fuck with Orville.
