“A wonderful compilation from a band at the top of their game.
Highly recommended.” – Blues Matters
“Robert Jon and the Wreck’s prolific output continues to impress.”
“It’s a lovely ballad, which would just as easily fit in the repertoire of Skynyrd, or Montgomery Gentry. With a moving bass line and compelling drumming, the guitar solo stands out and adds to the narrative arc.” – Rock and Blues Muse
The latest track “Dark Roses” is a new original song recorded at the legendary Sunset Sound in Los Angeles with Darrell Thorp. This song is one of their more sentimental songs written about the real-life loss of a friend who was close to the band.
The new album is a representation of a remarkable career-spanning collection of tracks including brand-new song debuts, fresh versions of fan favourites “On The Run” and “Cannonball,” hot-off-the-press live recordings of The Wreck’s critically acclaimed, searing 2022 singles, “She’s a Fighter,” “Waiting For Your Man,” “Old Hotel Room” and an incredible rendition of The Band’s “The Weight.”
Wreckage Vol. 2 captures all the energy and excitement that The Wreck generates every time they perform to their growing fanbase.
The release of Wreckage Vol. 2 follows the Wreck’s critically acclaimed studio album Shine A Light On Me Brother. The album featured the singles “Shine A Light On Me Brother” and “Everyday” that received airplay on UK rock radio including Planet Rock, BBC Radio 2, The Max, Total Rock, MMH Radio, ERB Radio and Radio Caroline.
The album features Robert Jon Burrison (lead vocals, guitar), Andrew Espantman (drums, b. vocals), Steve Maggiora (keyboards, b. vocals), Henry James (lead guitar, b. vocals), and Warren Murrel (bass, b. vocals).
The Wreck has been writing songs and releasing albums since the band’s conception in 2011. During this time, this quintet has been busy fine-tuning their sound playing to packed houses across Europe and the United States.
The band have toured with the likes of Bonamassa, Buddy Guy, Eric Gales, Living Colour, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Walter Trout, Rival Sons, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, The Cadillac Three, Black Stone Cherry, Devon Allman Band, Billy Sheehan, Sturgill Simpson, and many more.

About Robert Jon & The Wreck
Reigning from southern California, Robert Jon & The Wreck has been taking the southern rock sound established on the east coast and bringing it to the West Coast. Since their inception in 2011, these five native Californians; Robert Jon Burrison (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Andrew Espantman (Drums/Background Vocals), Steve Maggiora (Keys/ Background Vocals), Henry Schneekluth (Lead Guitar/Background Vocals), Warren Murrel (Bass) have been electrifying audiences globally with their soaring guitar leads, infectious grooves and rich vocal harmonies. With yearly European tours now becoming an integral part of their touring regiment The Wreck found their flow being on the road most of the year, returning to California and prolifically pumping out new material. Their sixth studio album, the critically acclaimed Shine a Light on Me Brother, was released in 2021. The Wreck is set to release Wreckage Vol. 2, a collection of exclusive in-studio and live concert performances recorded from 2020 – 2022, on Sept. 30 on Joe Bonamassa’s KTBA Records.
