Back in December, when Canadian blues artist Jordan Cook, a.k.a Reignwolf, announced he was opening for Black Sabbath on their North American tour, he celebrated with a new song, “In The Dark”. Now, with the tour wrapping up this evening at the Hollywood Bowl, Cook’s commemorating the occasion with yet another standalone single.
If you’re unfamiliar with Cook’s one-man blues-rock assault, “Lonely Sunday” is a pretty good crash course. Three relentless minutes of crashing drums, sweltering guitar antics, and vocals somewhere between a croon and a howl, the song skirts the line between lonesome blues ballad and an alt-rock anthem. Either way, though, bring your best hanky, cause you’re about to get about seven kinds of hot and sweaty.
“On route to kick off our supporting run with Black Sabbath, I made a stop in at Breakglass Studio in Montreal,” Cook says. “S.J. Kardash, a childhood friend of mine, and I recorded this track ‘Lonely Sunday’ in celebration of the tour. Plan to open with this at Hollywood Bowl tonight! Enjoy.”
