Written and recorded during late 2020 and early 2021, “Checkered Past” sees Tracii Guns, Phil Lewis, and company continuing with the darker lyrical tone of the preceding studio albums, “The Devil You Know” and “The Missing Peace“, while incorporating their classic rock influences into the mix. Heavier songs are mixed with bluesier, boogie inducing tracks and dark, introspective ballads, often harkening back to the first three albums the band made, but also pushing the band forward. When fans absorb the album as a whole, they’ll see that the tracklisting is divided up into ‘sets’ or ‘suites’, where a sonic style is explored across multiple songs before moving on to the next, making for a remarkable listening experience.

Track List for Checkered Past:
1. Cannonball
2. Bad Luck Charm
3. Living Right Now
4. Get Along
5. If It’s Over Now
6. Better Than You
7. Knock Me Down
8. Dog
9. Let You Down
10. That Ain’t Why
11. Physical Itch
