MP3 The Resurrectionists - My Chainsaw Heart
Though not a concept album, songs weave together a narrative that explores the nature of loss. It’s about the collateral damage of good love gone bad, a defiant celebration at the end of the world, and ultimately, transcendence, forgiveness and redemption

Formed in 2006, The Resurrectionists celebrate the dark depths of American roots music with a feel-good, righteous rock fervor. Refined over the course of countless gigs in and around Boston, the 4-piece band’s performances combines driving rhythms and hellbent showmanship with a twilit vocal tour of love and faith, booze and the blues.
In 2008, the band secured its foothold in the thriving Boston Americana rock scene, releasing the self-recorded album "Here Hope Flows...Like Blood From the Nose” and launching a quarterly musical series, "the Dark Holler Stomp and Musical Revue," dedicated to pushing the boundaries of American roots. Headlining slots on local Americana rock bills followed in addition to supporting gigs with like-minded national acts such as Slim Cessna’s Auto Club, Rev. Peyton''s Big Damned Band, Trampled by Turtles, The Devil Makes Three, Red Elvises, and Scott H. Biram.
A residency at Cambridge’s iconic Lizard Lounge highlight the band’s late 2010 calendar. 2011 saw the release of a new album, “My Chainsaw Heart,” with a follow up show at the Lizard Lounge. The media attention and string of high-profile shows landed the band a nomination for the Boston Phoenix Best Music Poll in the Americana/Roots category. The awards will be given in May. August 2011 will bring an extensive tour of the Midwest, South and East Coast.
