Album Notes
After releasing 3 full-length live albums, Bonerama followed up in 2009 with the release of their first-ever studio tracks. Recorded by Chris Finney at the Music Shed in New Orleans, LA.

The Hard Times EP contains four studio tracks including the title track, “Hard Times”, the instrumental number “Folly” and “Lost My House” which was co-wrttten by Craig Klein and Dave Malone from the Radiators. These three new originals along with a cover of Led Zeppelin’s “When the Levee Breaks” marks the band’s first ever studio recordings. A bonus fifth track features a live performance of “Turn on Your Love Light” captured live from the stage at The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

“Lost My House" is a true story inspired by the the levee failures in 2005. The verse was written by Dave Malone, who knows the story of the Rugalator. In the song, it is symbolic of losing everything, but still having the things you love and cherish. Some things can’t be taken away,” says Klein.

The song “Hard Times” is really about the antithesis of hard times and flipping our fears over to optimism. To those that say all hell is breaking loose, we say kick out the demons and embrace all the positives that are always around us but often ignored in this world,” says composer Mark Mullins.
