Plus, Lorenzo and the Southbound 75 boys will soon be gracing the stages of several right-of-passage Nashville stages including Ole Red, Wildhorse Saloon and others to be announced in the coming months.  

“We are putting together a big string of dates across the US in 2023 and we can’t wait to get out there and start playing the new songs for everyone,” said Lorenzo. “We have a few new songs done with Jimmy already and they are turning out so much better than we expected. We are going to transform them into an incredible live experience for our fans!”

Band to host album release celebration with fans tonight at the Dallas Bull in Tampa


TAMPA, Fla. – Available everywhere today, Southbound 75 has officially released their highly-anticipated new studio album, Tales From The Black Swamp, via Bad Jeu Jeu Records (orcd.co/talesfromtheblackswamp). The new set of tunes was recorded at Omni Sound Studio in Nashville, and produced by music city hitmaker Bill McDermott (Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, George Strait), who credited the Florida-based quintet by saying, “I think these guys are great for today’s country music because they have a rock ‘edge’ that I think country is already moving towards, and I think they want more of. I think these guys are primed to be there when that happens, and they’re gonna help spearhead it.” 

“We are so excited to finally release our debut album today,” said chief songwriter and frontman Mark Lorenzo. “I am pretty sure we’ve experienced about every delay we could with the COVID-19 pandemic, but we’ve finally reached the finish line, and are excited about our new partnerships with Bad Jeu Jeu Records, and everyone else on our team that has helped us reach our goal of getting this record out in a big way!”

The album’s current single “Spilled Champagne” is in rotation at country radio on more than 45 stations throughout the U.S., and is available for program directors on PlayMPE. The band also recently released a new video (youtu.be/uzTVs_YGm_c) for the song – also airing nationwide on The Country Network – and brings to life the somewhat laughable backstory about spending entirely too much money on a girl that is just way out of your league.

“When we wrote the song, it started out as just a funny story,” said Lorenzo. “But as we began playing the song live, fans started telling us about their own life experiences with similar situations. Not necessarily flying to the islands, but a few actually got to the ‘Diamonds’ stage, so that helped make the song way more authentic!”

Album Release Party Planned in Tampa on October 29
Southbound 75 will celebrate the release of Tales From The Black Swamp with their fans on Friday, October 29 at Tampa’s Dallas Bull. Doors open at 7p ET, and SB75 will perform several of the songs off the album at 9:30p ET. Plus, there will be free giveaways from Fireball, discount coupons from Gone Country Hats, and meet & greets with the band throughout the night. 

“We really worked hard on getting the album to sound like the way we sound when playing out live,” said Lorenzo. “So when you come see us live, then listen to the songs later, you know it’s our songs, our sounds but it matches your memory of the show.”

TAMPA, Fla. – Today, Southbound 75 released their new video on YouTube for their new single “Spilled Champagne,” an upbeat country rocker which portrays the song’s somewhat laughable backstory about spending entirely too much money on a girl that is just way out of your league.

“When we wrote the song, it started out as just a funny story,” said Lorenzo. “But as we began playing the song live, fans started telling us about their own life experiences with similar situations. Not necessarily flying to the islands, but a few actually got to the ‘Diamonds’ stage, so that helped make the song way more authentic!”

– Bill McDermott, Record Producer, Omni Sound Studio Nashville

“…big, rollicking sound, and the kind of catchy choruses that have people singing along before they know it. It’s easy to imagine them at venues like State Fairs and outdoor music festivals.”

I am very excited to be working with Mark Lorenzo and the rest of the guys in Southbound 75,” said McDermott! “I am really looking forward to great things happening for these guys. Lorenzo’s songwriting abilities are just flat-out remarkable as an artist.”

Southbound 75 also treated their fans with a brand new lyric video for the album’s first single “Not Ready To Say I’m Sorry Yet,” premiering it by way of Nashville’s Center Stage Magazine and the band’s YouTube channel (https://youtu.be/GOerGxjuKAc).

“Not Ready To Say I’m Sorry Yet” introduces songwriter Mark Lorenzo’s ability to craft a cleverly written song about dealing with the immediate personal feelings born out of heartbreak, an established theme at the very core of many great country & rock songs. 

“The whole song started with the first line, ‘What you are to me is a cell phone full of pissed off memories…’ and the whole song was done in an hour because it was true. I knew I was wrong but I wasn’t ready to admit it. I think that song just resonates well with our fans live. We always knew it was going to be the first single.”

Southbound 75 was recently named as Best New Country Band by The Tampa Bay Musicians Network. This early nod of endorsement comes by way of the band’s lineup of seasoned professionals, led by singer/songwriter Mark Lorenzo, who is backed by bandmates Kevin Doris on strings, Vance Eskesen on bass, and Gregg Giacobbe on drums.

“We have really taken our time to record these songs,” Lorenzo explained. “What has happened is that we have created a kind of ‘best of’ album, even though this is our first official release as a band. These are really my favorite songs I have ever written!”
