Jonny & the Black Frames are out for blood. Influenced by old school punk rock, early rock & roll, rockabilly, and 90’s alternative, they have little regard or patience for current trends. Jonny Yen (guitar/vocal) spent years terrorizing the regional music scene in Texas before disappearing suddenly and being presumed dead. Chad Z (bass/vocal) was run out of town at an early age after proving to be too vicious even for Detroit. A native of North Alabama, J. (drums) can often be spotted at the edge of the woods with an axe and a thousand yard stare. Jonny & the Black Frames now lurk in the dark corners of Huntsville, Alabama… biding their time… waiting to attack.

Magazine Reviews - "Revolver Junkies"
"Jonny & The Black Frames have been local faves for several years now. And although to date they haven't put out a bad release, I have felt that they haven't totally captured the complete package of what they so deftly deliver live. In their defense, that's a damn tall order. And I highly recommend any and all of their material that you can get your hands on. The critters in Huntsville, Alabama, as well as a lot of the Southeast, have known what's up for eons and still can't get enough of 'em. That's why Revolver Junkies is so important. This is equal parts the document the scene has been raving for and the badass punk rock record you've been needing.
"So what the hell do they sound like?"
When Jonny & The Black Frames aren't giving us rock'n'roll with pure punk energy, they're putting out punk with solid rock'n'roll balls. These folks have got the entire delirious history of loud guitar pumping in their veins. Pumping so hard, in fact, there oughta be a health warning on the back. Overdriven Chuck Berry is one thing, but they take it to the next level. They ain't afraid to get dirty. They ain't afraid to get dark. I bet these motherfuckers wore sunglasses in the studio with the lights punched out. Rockabilly, old-school punk, new-school punk, glam, metal? It just comes natural to them. It all belongs and it doesn't sound crazy or pretentious or stupid. It's all just rock'n'roll to them.
Buy this ASAP and see them live whenever ya get a chance!!" -Harmless GAD!Zine 2019
