Method To My Madness
Over the course of his four-decade career, Tommy Castro has played thousands of shows to hundreds of thousands of fans, packing seats and dance floors, always leaving them screaming for more. Hailing from the San Francisco area, Castro, along with his band, The Painkillers (bassist Randy McDonald, keyboardist Michael Emerson and drummer Bowen Brown), play music that is guaranteed to fire up fans and leave critics searching for new words of praise.

METHOD TO MY MADNESS finds Tommy Castro & The Painkillers at their very best. It is an instant career highlight in a lifetime full of them. The album was produced by Castro (his first time at the helm) using no recording studio wizardry, just the unadulterated sound of the band. Castro’s songs – he wrote or co-wrote 10 of 12 tracks – are raw, raucous and rocking. From everyman anthems to full-tilt rockers to searing deep soul ballads to bayou rock to reinventions of blues and R&B classics, Tommy Castro & The Painkillers continue to break new ground while simultaneously having an incredible amount of fun.

Pre-order METHOD TO MY MADNESS for the sale price of $14.98 (includes FREE U.S. shipping). The first 200 pre-orders will receive an autographed copy.
