Los Banos hip-hop rebels, the Moonshine Bandits, say new album No. 54 on Billboard chart

Los Banos’s country hip-hop rebels — Dusty Dahlgren and Brett Brooks, aka the Moonshine Bandits — said their new album, “Whiskey and Women,” landed at position No. 54 on Billboard’s Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart.

That chart, according to their publicist James Wright, lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists. The Moonshine Bandits’ musical mixture of hip-hop and country won over fans of various genres as their new album simultaneously hit Billboard’s Rap chart at No. 44, Current Country chart at No. 65 and the Independent albums chart at No. 162, according to a news release from Wright.

"This is a huge accomplishment for us, and it feels good to get recognized for something that we have worked so hard far,” Tex Dahlgren of the Moonshine Bandits said in the news release. “We really want to acknowledge everyone in the Suburban Noize family that took a chance on some small town boys from the Valley. The Shiner Nation should stand proud because this marks how much of a force they are to help us hit the Billboard charts for both rap and country music without the help of a huge radio campaign or even touring yet. We will continue to work hard — this only the beginning."

“Whiskey and Women" is the soundtrack to late nights in dive bars and truck stops. The band’s brand of misfit country hip-hop is fueled by women, whiskey and 4-wheel drives to create a hybrid of Johnny Cash and the Beastie Boys, according to the news release.

“Whiskey and Women" was released in conjunction with Suburban Noize Records and features guest appearances by Danny Boone of Rehab, Big B, Dirtball & Daddy X from Kottonmouth Kings and country star Colt Ford. "Whiskey and Women" can be bought at FYE Stores, Best Buy, Itunes, Amazon and everywhere online.
