Yesterday's RingYesterday’s Ring was started in 2000 on a hot summer day on the front porch of a punk house in Memphis, TN.

Fred Jacques (guitar and vocals) and Hugo Mudie (vocals) were on tour with their band, The Sainte Catherines. Fueled by whiskey and beer, they decided to start writing folk/country songs influenced by a mix of Bruce Springsteen, Johnny Cash and “punk heroes” like Tim Armstrong of Rancid, Joe Strummer of The Clash and Shane Macgowan of The Pogues.

“We were just tired of playing loud and fast songs” Hugo says. “We were listening to a lot of country in the van and we wanted to do something like that, but growing up in the punk scene, it came out really dirty, rough, and punk…” Diamonds in The Ditch was produced and recorded in their hometown, by the band and features heartfelt and catchy songs that people will have problems getting out of their heads.

On May 12th, Yesterday’s Ring’s latest album, “Diamonds in the Ditch” came out in stores.
