Starting this week we are headed up through the midwest, northeast, east coast and southern USA!
We're bringing along the rockin' duo Black Pistol Fire for this tour. Originally from Canada, they've been
living down here in Austin awhile and building a pretty big buzz... You'll love 'em!
Every night of this tour is going to be great!
It's been a productive couple of months for Ol' Biram!
I finished my newest album a couple months back and I've been busy getting it mastered
and finalizing cover art etc. As of now, our projected date of release is early February 2014.
While I've been home, I also recorded two more songs that we plan on releasing as a
a limited edition vinyl single (also available by download) on the 2nd record store day of 2013.
(That's on Black Friday, the day after Thanksgiving in case you didn't know!)
Be sure and get yourself a copy when it comes out! It's an old time gospel kinda thing.
I got my friend Jesse Vain to join me on the B-side too! It just might save your soul! You may actually get
all burned up if ya don't buy it! ; )
Have to tell you we had a blast on the last western US run!...Played a few shows with
my buddy Shooter Jennings, then moved on to Farmageddon music festival in Montana.
We finished up wtih a few shows on the way home with our Texas buddie's Whiskey Dick and
Black Eyed Vermillion. It was great to meet and hang out with the guys from Pentagram
and Weedeater at the Farmageddon Fest. Both put on amazing shows! I stood there with my jaw
dropped the entire show! Also great to listen to all our friends like Slim Cessna, Calamity Cubes, Goddamn Gallows,
Uncle Tom Vandenavond, Bob Log III, and and and...everybody that played! It was a great time...A real reunion!
Y'all come on out to these upcoming shows and see what the fuss is all about!
We'll be expecting you!

Hey Hey Hey everybody!!
After 2 months in my own studio back in the fall of 2012, along with 2 weeks in May at Cacophony studios here in Austin, and another 3 weeks back in my own studio last month...I've finished my upcoming record! It will be called Nothin' But Blood! We've finished mix-down, and we're now in the process of booking some studio dates to get the album mastered for both CD/digital and vinyl. I'll keep you posted on when it will be released. Also, I will probably be releasing a vinyl single for record store day in November. That's the same as Black Friday for those of you who don't know.
I'll be embarking on a Western USA Tour starting July 19th in Phoenix, AZ at Crescent Ballroom. I'll be hitting key cities in AZ, CA, OR, MT, UT, CO, KS, TX.
A few of the west coast dates will be co-headline bills with my friend Shooter Jennings. All this is leading up to a headlining spot at the Farmageddon Records Festival in Clinton, MT. Check out the amazing line-up of this awesome festival at http://www.farmageddonrecordsmusicfestival.com/. Some of the great bands playing are Pentagram, Weedeater, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Bob Log III, Shooter Jennings, Black Eyed Vermillion, Whiskey Dick, God Damn Gallows and on and on and on....
On our way back, I will be playing some shows, bringing along my good friends Black Eyed Vermillion, and Whiskey Dick. Hope some of you western mofos can make it out to some of those shows...
In September I'll be headed up through the Midwest and over to the Northeast down the East Coast and a quick jaunt across the South.
I'll be bringing Austin rockin' duo, Black Pistol Fire out for most of those shows. We'll be hitting TX, OK, MO, WI, MN, IL, IN, MI, NY, MA, NJ, DC, VA, NC, GA, AL, LA!
Anybody who feels left out on here....well, don't worry! When this new record hits, I'll be pounding the pavement once again and hitting a much more refined tour routing.. I hope to see all of you out on the road soon!!
Happy New Year Mofos!!
I've been buried in the studio for the last month. I've got about 3 songs down for the new record and planning on busting out some more tracks while home in March. More work in the studio in May/June. Hoping to get finished up by then and fingers crossed, we should have a new release by the Fall of 2013! Its been nice to throw a few of those songs on recent song lists at shows and try them out on you little guinea pigs!
I'm excited to say we're hitting the road this week across the south and including part of the midwest and the east coast!
For part of the dates, I'm bringing my friends, Black Eyed Vermillion, and Whiskey Dick! (See the listings on www.scottbiram.com for which ones.) You may remember Gary Lindsey, singer of Black Eyed Vermillion, as the wild-ass guttural growler of Hank Williams III's AssJack. It's going to be a really great tour! We'll be hitting venues in TX, AR, MO, TN, KY, VA, NC, GA, FL, LA. I hope you guys can make some of the shows and hear a few of the new songs.
I'll also be performing at this year's SXSW festival here in Austin, TX! I missed playing last year due to being on tour with G. Love. It was the first SXSW I've missed playing in 12 years! So I'm really glad to be back this year! I got some exciting news recently!! Since I won "Best Blues Album" in last year's Independent Music Awards, I was asked to participate in a free concert series at New York City's prestigious Lincoln center. I will be playing there on March 28th! As soon as we leave NYC we head directly to the UK to begin another 3 week tour in April in England, Scotland, and Ireland.
I hope all of you are doing well and I can't thank you enough for all the support! Here's to a great 2013 and a new SHB album!!
See ya out there on the road somewhere!
Happy Holidays Y'all!!!
It's been a long grueling 3 months. We hit the west coast for a month back in September...I was home for 2 weeks then we flew straight over to Europe for
another 5 weeks and 11 countries. It was my 15th European tour in 7 years. I had some of the best European turnouts I've ever had on this trip! Good to know the word is getting out! We hit France, Belgium, Holland, Switzerland, (a night off in Germany), Austria, Slovenia, Serbia, Croatia, Spain, Italy...It was a great time and everybody was amazing! A huge thanks to the clubs, and the people who took care of us, and especially to everybody who came out to the shows!
Now here back at home....December 15th I'll be playing a sold out show at House of Blues Hollywood with Social Distortion! Pretty exciting!
Hopefully I can prove myself and get some more road shows with them in the near future. I'll also be playing a couple of my own shows around that time.
I'll be in Scottsdale AZ, on 12/13 at Martini Ranch, and in Los Angeles, CA at The Satellite (formerly Spaceland) on 12/16. My good friends Restavrant will be opening the LA show! It will be alot of fun! Last but definitely not least I'll be playing NEW YEARS EVE right here at home in AUSTIN, TX at FRANK! I hope ALOT of you can make it to help me ring in the new year!
Also I'll be doing some USA Southern Etc. dates in Jan/Feb with my good friends Black Eyed Vermillion/Whiskey Dick! Get yo ass out to the shows!
MESSAGE FROM SCOTT...
Greetings mofos and mofas,
Hey hey we're still breathing after 2 months and 14,000 miles on the road!
It was ALOT of work, and I came home to a lightning storm which burned down my parents house the night we got home.
Thankfully, everyone was ok including their animals. Thanks to everybody who reached out and expressed their concerns on Facebook etc. You guys are the best friends and fans ever. Also a big thanks for all the birthday wishes on 4/4!
38 and I'm still here....March 25th was also the 9th anniversary of my big wreck and I am still very thankful to still be treading the earth!
Our most recent 2 month journey started in late January across the Southern US on our own headline tour with our good friend, and label mate, Lydia Loveless then headed straight over to the West Coast to start our support slots with G. Love & Special Sauce.
We had a great time and made alot of new friends and hopefully some new fans! Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows. I want to give a special thanks to all my fans who paid the higher priced tickets at the G. Love shows even though you knew I was only going to be playing 40-50 minute sets. It means alot and I am very grateful to have such loyal fans. It was also great to be playing big venues like The Fillmore West in San Francisco, and Harah's in Lake Tahoe, The Showbox in Seattle and and and and and etc. etc. etc.
It was awesome looking at the pics on the walls backstage of so many legends who performed on the same stages that I performed on.
It really was a good time.
I have a few Texas shows in April and May then we're, once again, headed out on the road road road road road yeah.
It seemed like everybody was pretty stoked that I brought Lydia Loveless along on the last tour so we're bringing her back out on the road with us again. This time we're headed up through the midwest then across to the Northeast and down through a bit of the South again. If you haven't heard Lydia, you need to check her out. She has a great voice and belts it out and doesn't hold back.
Her songwriting is equally impressive. I can dig it. We had a blast with her last time and we're really looking forward to hitting the road with her again.
Later this year (tentatively in September) we're planning another west coast tour.
And looking into another European tour later in the Fall. I'm planning on getting in the studio in July and August and hope to have at least the beginnings of a new release started.
Finally, I just want to give another big shout out and thanks to all of you loyal fans who have been coming out to the shows and especially those of you who have been street teaming for us and making the shows that much better! Hope to see all of you out there in the coming months!
I can't say thanks enough....

SCOTT H. BIRAM FACEBOOK PAGE - 10,000 Likes? Almost!
Attention Attention...the Scott H. Biram Facebook page is nearing 10,000 likes...and we need your help!
This is incredible and a testament to you guys, the amazing SHB fans around the world. The page currently sits just 200 or so likes short so please take the time to tell your friends about it, spread the news, and let's get to 10K this month!
Here's the link to post, promote, & spam (just kidding):
What's missing in The First Ch__ch of the Ultimate Fanaticism?
ha ha.. I saw something like that on one of those silly church signs the other day.
And a Happy Bah Humbug to you all!!
I hope all of y'all are having a great holiday season.
I'm half-way boycotting it because it can be so damn stressful, but I have really been enjoying all the great food spreads my friends have had. Way too much X-mas partying going on around here.
I've been taking advantage of the cold weather which means I've been drinking lots of Guinness and eating lots of raw oysters and trying to sleep a little. Ha Ha! I don't get much sleep the rest of the year because I'm driving all over the country trying to entertain all of you!
December is notoriously the slowest time of year for music and touring so I'm taking it pretty easy as far as shows go, (not to say that I don't have shows in December! I DO!) but we will be out there steadily rockin' more shows again next month and back on the road by the end of January. I'm sorry to say I won't be playing a New Year's Eve show for the first time in 10+ years. It's not because we didn't try. Things just didn't fall into place. We have been trying to set something up since July. I guess it means I get to actually celebrate NYE this year instead of work!
Anyway, wanted to let you guys in on some exciting things to come in 2012. In January, I'm really looking forward to getting back into the southern USA.
I'm taking new Bloodshot Records artist, Lydia Loveless out with me this time. She'll be playing a stripped down set every night as we work our way across the South, and yes we're coming to Florida!! I hope all of you southern folks are ready to check these bad ass shows out! It's really going to be something!!
As soon as we finish up that tour in early February, I have to haul ass out west!
I just finished up touring the entire Western US a few weeks ago but this time I'll be jumping on a tour with G. Love and Special Sauce in February thru March. (I won't be home for SXSW Festival for the first time in 12 years! Kinda sorry to say that because you know we always have a blast!) Some people may say that pairing G. Love and myself is a little strange, but the idea is that I will be playing in front of alot more people every night, and most of which will have never seen me before. I'm guessing most of G. Love's fans have not heard of me before so this will be a great way to get more exposure and turn some new people onto the gospel of the First Church of The Ultimate Fanaticism. Also, alot of these shows are going to be in bigger venues like Fillmore West in San Francisco and some of the House Of Blues venues around the West Coast.
This tour will also take us across the NW and into the midwest finally ending in Chicago. After that I'll actually be home in April and will hopefully be seeing some nice weather in Texas. i'm usually gone in the nicest parts of the year so looking forward to maybe having another nice garden and will probably need to stock up on some new chickens. I lost 4 of the 6 that I had over the last burning summer, and when it started cooling down Mr. Possum decided to start beheading them. A big hawk landed in there the other day and tried to get away with another one.
Farmer Biram's pissed but Farmer Biram always wins! While I'm home in April, and May I'll be playing quite a few regional dates around Texas.
Anyway, wanted to let all of you know what's up with the first half of '12 and also to let some of you European friends know that we're trying to plan something for the fall over there. It's a little tricky since the exchange rate from Dollar to Euro is really sad right now. I'll be trying to get back as soon as I can afford it. Thanks for your patience.
Anyway, I hope to see all of your faces out at the upcoming shows and thanks so much for supporting me and making the release of my latest record, "Bad Ingredients" such a success. You've all made 2011 one of the best years I've had in music so far!
October has been a really exciting month with my NEW RELEASE: "BAD INGREDIENTS" as well as all the new videos we've been releasing via Paste Magazine. I've been busy as hell with interviews and planning for all the coming months. Be sure and do a little googling and find some of the great reviews of the new record. Also, chime in and tell anybody who's given it a bad review to "Suck it!" ha ha....seriously. I was very honored to be featured on the cover of The Austin Chronicle this past week. This something I've wanted for a very long time.
Yikes! It's already rolled back around!!.....I just got home and I'm already hittin' the road again! This time I'm hitting the WESTERN USA in November and bringing along my friends Joe Buck Yourself, and Molly Gene: One Whoaman Band. But not before we tear up Texas with a few more exciting shows! These dates are all listed below. The big one being my Halloween show at Scoot Inn right here in Austin, TX on 10/29.
This Tuesday Oct. 25th, FX Channel's "Sons of Anarchy" will feature two of my older original songs "Still Drunk, Still Crazy, Still Blue" and "Lost Case of Being Found." Also, next week's "Sons of Anarchy" episode will feature one of my older originals "No Way." Awesome!
One more thing...
We've got some great new merch for the new tour. We re-stocked the "H. is for Fuck You" patches and they're also available on www.scottbiram.com. I also have new SHB Trucker Hats! I know people have wanted those for a very long time so here they come! We made SHB stickers for the first time in 5 years! Anyway, bring your wallet and your purse or your man-purse or whatever you carry your cash in and come buy some shit! We need the money! I love you guys and thanks so much for all the nice things you've been saying about the new record. Every thing you guys say means alot to me. Thanks so much for your support!
