MATNEY, a band inspired by the essence of Southern rock, is set to release their latest single, All Fired Up, on February 9th. This new track draws from the rich tapestry of Southern rock, reminiscent of legends like ZZ Top, and is deeply rooted in the cultural and personal influences of frontman Michael Matney.

All Fired Up is a reflection of Michael Matney’s life experiences. Intertwining his musical inspirations with elements of farm life, faith, and overcoming personal demons. This song is based on Michael’s experience of dealing with significant challenges and finding solace and direction through music and faith.​ 

The production expertise of Stevie Salas, a multi-platinum producer known for his work with stars like Justin Timberlake and Mick Jagger, elevates All Fired Up to new heights. Salas, who also co-wrote the single and contributed lead guitar, is renowned for executive producing the award-winning documentary Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World.

Michael Matney’s previous venture, White Boy and The Average Rat Band, has attained a cult following, with its original album pressings now highly sought after by collectors. His role as a guitarist for David Alan Coe significantly established his prominence in the Southern Rock realm. Additionally, Matney’s performances at renowned clubs throughout the United States with White Boy and The Average Rat Band have further reinforced his standing in the music community.

MATNEY’s latest single All Fired Up​,  released under Roulette Records and available on all major platforms, is poised to inspire and stand as a tribute to the timeless essence of Southern Rock.
