March 10 — Independent southern rock band Rick Monroe and the Hitmen is set to release its new album, Lead Burns Red later this year through The Label Group.
In anticipation of the record’s pending release, the band premiered the album’s new single, ‘Looking‘ Friday. The song is a composition that will appeal to a wide range of listeners. That is due to the balance of its bluegrass, southern rock and country leanings. While some have likened the work to those from the likes of Eagles, The Allman Brothers Band, and even Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the balance of the banjo and guitar here honestly likens the arrangement more closely to the likes of Steep Canyon Rangers and a hint of Reckless Kelly to this critic’s ears.
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme in the news release announcing the single’s release and no lyrics are provided with the song through the band’s YouTube channel. From what can be inferred through the lyrics, it comes across as centering on the all too familiar theme of someone who is looking for love and maybe in all the wrong places.
