The Chitlins....Past and Future

  First off, if you are reading this blog ....Thank you for being here. Your support means the world to us. 
For those that have recently inquired about the band .....in a nutshell, here is our brief history and plans for the near future.....
 As you probably know since you are here, Stump Whoopt Chitlins released our first ep, SADISFIED in Oct 2014. Sales of our music and interest in the band exceeded our expectations ( which weren't very high. ) We expected a few friends to pick it up and listen and hopefully get on some local radio shows. To our surprise we sold and have had music played in 6 different countries so far. So....we rehearsed our songs and continued writing until we were ready to embark on a small regional tour to get our music out to the masses. We played our first show in Dec 2014 very close to our home town, in Biloxi MS. with Cedric Burnside project. The show was incredible ,We are ready to do this, hitting the road in 2015.
  Then in the blink of an eye tragedy struck when lead singer, Scott Henry's 11 year old son Spencer, was killed in an auto accident. We were devastated for our brother and his family. What a heavy load to bear. With boggled minds and broken hearts the time now was for family and grieving. It seemed all bets were off for Stump Whoopt Chitlins before the hand was dealt.   
  Recovery from such a tragedy is a very long journey and takes a strenuous toll on all involved. And though the pain subsides you never truly, fully recover. But with time depressing thoughts can start to turn into fond memories.
  Music is much like therapy to many of us that have it flowing constantly through our soul and our minds. And after months of confusion, depression, grieving and brotherhood we found ourselves slowly getting back in the studio. After several frustrating attempts to get our heads back in the game with limited success, a new song began to re ignite the fire and the bottled up music started pouring out.
  To make a long story shorter, we had  change to our line up with our new guitarist,  Bucky Cole, shortened the name of the band to THE CHITLINS and we are nearing completion of a new, full length album entitled "Keepin It Real" to be released summer 2016. We will be releasing our first new single "Down On Me" within the next few weeks. Then more singles will follow. We are setting up a non-profit foundation in Spencers name to help provide books, music and art supplies to needy children as these were some of his favorite activities. And of course the album will be dedicated to the memory of Spencer Henry and we are planning a memorial concert once all things are in place.
  We are also rehearsing and gearing up to book some shows in the near future. We are very excited to be excited again. And we feel our new release will be on an entire different level than the first.

    First of all I'd like to tell Scott that I am so sorry for is loss. It's so hard to loose a loved one much less a child. I've lost both and can feel your pain. I'll be praying for you and yours. The music is awesome. I grew up playing a lot of old rock ( I'm 75) and blues so your music is perfect for me. The whole band is awesome, the singing everything about it I like. The lead guitar player, well what can I say. Ask Bucky who got him started learning the guitar, :). Fixing to buy the album. I'm looking forward for more to come...
