Rod Melancon Premieres ‘Promises’ From Upcoming Album on Elmore Magazine
“Rod Melancon must have spent many a twilight hour in creepy bayous, because Southern Gothic brings to life the stories of his childhood in the badlands and bayous of his home in a brilliant—albeit chilling—album.
In the spirit of Sturgill Simpson and Tom Petty, Melancon rocks his way through the land and the darker spirits who inhabit it, from a fun-loving hedonist to the man who was “born to fight” and die in prison, to the very Devil himself. Listening to the tales told and feeling the pulse of this album immerses the listener in the dark, and often twisted, night of the soul. The journey though the heart of darkness that is Southern Gothic may leave listeners unscathed, but not untouched.”
