Californian Southern rockers Robert Jon & The Wreck are pleased to release Wreckage Vol. 2, a collection of exclusive in-studio and live concert performances on Blues-Rocker Joe Bonamassa’s label, KTBA Records. The new album is released worldwide today.

The latest track Dark Roses is a new original song recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound in Los Angeles with Darrell Thorp. This song is one of their more sentimental songs written about the real-life loss of a friend who was close to the band. 

The new album is a representation of a remarkable career spanning collection of tracks including brand-new song debuts, fresh versions of fan favourites On The Run and Cannonball, hot-off-the-press live recordings of The Wreck’s critically acclaimed, searing 2022 singles, She’s a FighterWaiting For Your Man, Old Hotel Room and an incredible rendition of The Band’s The Weight.

Wreckage Vol. 2 captures all the energy and excitement that The Wreck generate every time they perform to their growing fanbase.

The release of Wreckage Vol. 2 follows The Wreck‘s critically acclaimed studio album Shine A Light On Me Brother. The album featured the singles Shine A Light On Me Brother and Everyday that received airplay on UK rock radio including Planet Rock, BBC Radio 2, The Max, Total Rock, MMH Radio, ERB Radio and Radio Caroline. 

The album features Robert Jon Burrison (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Espantman (drums, b. vocals), Steve Maggiora (keyboards, b. vocals), Henry James (lead guitar, b. vocals), and Warren Murrel (bass, b. vocals).

The Wreck has been writing songs and releasing albums since the band’s conception in 2011. During this time, this quintet has been busy fine-tuning their sound playing to packed houses across Europe and the United States. 

The band have toured with the likes of Bonamassa, Buddy Guy, Eric Gales, Living Colour, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Walter Trout, Rival Sons, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Cadillac Three, Black Stone Cherry, Devon Allman Band, Billy Sheehan, Sturgill Simpson, and many more.
