Future Cowboys: Going Kamikaze (Pantherburn)

Life On Mars!
Imagine it’s 2323. We have colonized Mars. New California, a small mining outpost on the surface of the red planet, has everything you’d expect. Corporate greed, slave labor, saloons packed with drunkards and convicts on the lamb. It’s the New Wild West. The Future Cowboys explore this lawless frontier in their second studio album Life on Mars!
In this time of political turmoil and environmental disasters, “More than a Miracle” featuring Tonya Boyd Cannon inspires hope in a powerful anthem. “The Heat” featuring Richie Cannata is truly an homage to Dr. John, inspired by the city of New Orleans. “Cowboys From the Future” advocates for social change by trading guns for peace. “PARTY” will have guests rollin’ up, the smell of grass in the air. “Heart In Action” reminds us that love is the answer. Title track “Life On Mars!” Is a funky dance tune featuring SOUL Brass Band, and “Home on the Range,” produced by Koil, is a dark ballad about our environmental future. Saddle Up and join the Future Cowboys on this new musical journey.
“What if Riders in the Sky and Leon Russell decided to work with A Tribe Called Quest, with the Roots serving as producers?….. Future Cowboys provides the answer. Saddle up.”
~Ross Boissoneau (March 2020)
