Multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning artist Everlast has released his new album Whitey Ford’s House of Pain out today (September 7th) on his own label Martyr-Inc Records. His seventh solo studio effort overall and first studio album of all-new material since 2011’s Songs of the Ungrateful Living (2013’s The Life Acoustic was re-recorded solo guitar versions of previously released songs). The 12-song collection offers an eclectic stylistic sampling from throughout Everlast’s nearly-three-decade-long journey and cements his role as a heartland working class hero.

You can call him Everlast, Whitey Ford or even Erik Francis Schrody, but by any name, this singer-songwriter-rap legend’s remarkable music career has seen him reinvent himself several times over. From his first solo album, Forever Everlasting, under the auspices of Ice-T’s Rhyme Syndicate when he was barely out of his teens, to the “Jump Around” success with House of Pain, the multi-platinum Whitey Ford Sings the Blues (and its genre-bending hit single, “What It’s Like”) and his Grammy-winning contribution to Carlos Santana’s Supernatural album (“Put Your Lights On”), EVERLAST has defied the naysayers. Along the way, he has forged a groundbreaking merger of hip-hop, rock, folk, funk and R&B, influencing everyone from Kid Rock and Colt Ford to acolytes like Yelawolf, JellyRoll and Lil Wyte, even if he’s too modest to say it himself.
