NASHVILLE, Tenn.—The latest album from Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band was written by candlelight andthen recorded using the best technology available . . . in the 1950s.

But listeners won’t find another album as relevant, electrifying and timely asDance Songs for Hard Times.

Dance Songs for Hard Timesconveys the hopes and fears of pandemic living. Rev. Peyton, the Big Damn Band’svocalist and world-class fingerstyle guitarist, details bleak financial challenges on the songs “Ways and Means”and “Dirty Hustlin’.” He pines for in-person reunions with loved ones on “No Tellin’ When,” and he pleads forcelestial relief on the album-closing “Come Down Angels.”

Far from a depressing listen, Dance Songs lives up to its name by delivering action-packed riffs and rhythmsacross 11 songs. The country blues trio that won over crowds on more than one Warped Tour knows how tomake an audience move. “I like songs that sound happy butare actually very sad,” Peyton says. “I don’t know why it is, but I just do.”
