I understand "broness," the act of being a bro, bro-ing down and above all, being a bro when another bro needs you to be. You know who is a righteous bro? Shelby, that's who. Not long ago Shelby stoked us all with his Dino-Metal band Cretaceous, and once again the dude is here to rock us with his other band, Dalton. The name is clearly inspired by Patrcik Swayze's complex antihero from Road House (a movie I have seen more than any other). Dalton (the band) has a kind of moustache arena rock vibe that, like the cover art suggests, celebrates all things American AND badass. Get a gander of that cover, eagles, flags, hot cars, aviator shades, some kind of wild cat, a big ass explosion, and above all freedom, bitch. The freedom to rip your shirt off and party bare-chested, feral, and free with your bestest bros. Despite the obvious ironic novelty appeal of Dalton, the songs are fucking great, and absolutely spot on. Thanks again, Shelby. You are broness personified.
