“I want my country back”, Brent Amaker laments on the new single “Dump Trump”.
The new track marks the return of Brent Amaker and the Rodeo, back in 2020 with the new Ugly World, the new EP out November 13th via Rodeo Corp Ltd. The project sees the Rodeo in fine form, focused and on fire and no doubt inspired by the events of today.
Brent, an Oklahoma City native, was raised in a red state, and voted Republican much of his life as a young adult. “It’s been painful to watch both parties struggle to get anything done. The world has become more extreme, and the political divide in our country reflects that. Regardless of party choice, many folks are finding it hard to support a president who has built his career on lies and inflated truths. The USA is a mess right now, and there is only one person who has been at the top and failing to lead. The President of the United States.”
Brent Amaker and the Rodeo first formed in 2005, and since then their music has appeared worldwide in television programs on HBO and Showtime such as Big Little Lies, Sharp Objects, Weeds, and Californication. Brent Amaker’s music has received over 3M streams across the catalog. Since 2005 Brent Amaker has opened for the likes of Willie Nelson and the Mavericks (among others).
They have appeared at the following music festivals around the world: CMJ, SXSW, BERLIN MUSIC WEEK, POPKOMM, BUMBERSHOOT, WATEERSHED FESTIVAL, CANADIAN MUSIC WEEK, CAPTIOL HILL BLOCK PARTY, MONSTER OF ROCK - ANTWERP, AND MORE.
Earlier this year, Amaker explored new sounds with his all female supported project Brent Amaker Death Squad.
