Southern rock outfit Scattered Hamlet has released some new music to the masses, and it’s all for a good cause.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Stay Hungry’ on June 19 via Tattoo.com. The song is a cover of the classic anthem from Twisted Sister. While the song is a cover, it is also meant as a tribute to the band’s drummer Jake Delling Le Bast. Even Dee Snider himself offered kind words for the band’s take on the song.
Le Bast is currently in a coma after being severely injured during a party last year celebrating his 30th birthday. A collective statement from the band explained that during the celebration, Le Bast “fell off a third story balcony.” It goes on to state that Le Bast “made it, but was in a coma with a traumatic brain injury. The kind of brain injury soldiers get from IEDs.”
Scattered Hamlet will tour in support of its new single and its most recent album, 2016’s Swamp Rebel Machine. The roughly 4 1/2 week-long tour is scheduled to launch July 6 in Nashville, Tennessee and run through September 9 in Sturgis, South Dakota. The tour’s current schedule is noted below.
