It's been a wild ride since their start in Nashville during the 1980s, but their 2010 reunion for Jason and The Scorchers marks what they consider "an unforgettable career moment... The last time we played together was 1996."

Jason and The Scorchers — whose new album, Halcyon Times, is their first in 14 years — is known for laying the groundwork for cowpunk, a genre that combines country, honky tonk and punk.

Hear Jason and his crew perform live and chat with World Cafe host David Dye about getting the band back together.
