The Georgia Thunderbolts are releasing “Can I Get A Witness” a glowing new song from their upcoming debut album which will be released on Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group on October 15th.

The Georgia Thunderbolt’s new single Can I Get A Witness is about “overcoming life’s difficulties”, explains singer TJ Lyle. “Everyone’s life goes up and down, but it’s about how to get through these difficulties and learn lessons that show who you really are. Can I Get A Witness is a tribute to all who have a desire and belief in themselves and others to succeed. ”

Whether it be on the banks of the Mississippi River or deep in the heart of the English countryside, rock ‘n’ roll lives, breathes, and burns on the outskirts. Hailing from Rome, GA at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, The Georgia Thunderbolts rise up with a scorching signature style steeped in soulful southern swagger, blistering blues, and raw rock. Out August 21st via Mascot Records, the quintet’s self-titled debut EP conjures a tried-and-true spirit through a fresh fire. 

With a wide swath of inspirations, ranging from southern gospel and Hank Williams to Neil Young, Little Feat, Ozzy Osbourne and Lynyryd Skynyrd, the band cut their teeth performing with everyone from Black Stone Cherry and The Kentucky Headhunters to Blackberry Smoke. Shortly after, they hit the iconic Barrick Recording Studio in Glasgow, KY to record with producer Richard Young. The resulting EP comprises undeniable anthems steeped in anthemic riffs, wild harmonica, and pulse-pounding drums.

“In Georgia, you hear Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, and all of the greats everywhere,” guitarists Riley and Logan add. “Rock and roll is something that comes naturally for us. We feel like we can bring it back.” The press agree, with Classic Rock Magazine dubbing the band “your new favorite southern rock band,” and American Songwriter calling their recently released debut EP, “timeless.” “But these Thunderbolts aren’t a low-voltage knockoff of the greats who came before,” Rolling Stone adds. “Rather, they keep things fresh by committing to lean, muscular songs…Southern rock continues to thrive in the 21st century.”

“We have a message,” says Bristol, “It’s okay to be yourself. If you’re having a hard time, the music is always there. We love to remind everyone of that. ” “Rock and roll is something completely natural for us,” conclude Riley, Zach and Logan. “We love it and will last a long time. It feels like we can take rock ‘n’ roll back. ”
