2 mins read

“Remnants”, the newest album from Charlotte, NC-based group Bob Fleming and The Cambria Iron Co., brings the heartfelt rock-‘n’-roll sound of a working poor south, and the fiery idealist lyrics of the best punk bands. Their music brings a thoughtful and superbly honest vision of the American landscape through the eyes of those who live it. Today, we’re stoked to give you the full stream of the album, as well as the band’s special comentary and their top album picks to get your creative juoces flowing.

β€œβ€˜Remnants’ is a culmination of all the emotions, the fear, and anger, that we as a band, and the rest of the world, have experienced over these last two years.” – comments Bob Fleming.

“The financial hardships that plague the working class, the murder of unarmed black men woman and children by police, the isolation of a pandemic, and just the general feeling of uncertainty around everything. It’s definitely my favorite record we’ve done, and I truly hope it conveys a message of hope in the face of darkness.”

Often times lines are blurry. With ‘genre bending’ being its own genre these days, it’s hard to know what’s an Instagram hashtag and what’s real, pure, American music. Bob Fleming and the Cambria Iron Company are a breath of fresh air in a world of stuffy prepackaged “alternative country”, “modern southern rock” and “cow punk”.

Bob, Dawn, Brannden, Ryan and Ben, are the real deal. Spending countless nights on the road over the past four years, the saddle worn trucker persona comes honestly. The seamless blending of punk, southern rock, and singer songwriter sensitivity, sets this 5 piece apart from their peers, without question.

Jon is not only one of my favorite songwriters, but one of the best people I know. His songs are just all so beautifully written.
