Shooter Jennings' final album for Universal South, 2007's The Wolf, flirted more with neo-traditional country than any of his previous records did; it was almost schizophrenic, trying to balance his rock & roll side with his pedigree. After leaving the label, he formed Hierophant, a post-psych, near metal outfit which recorded the conceptual Black Ribbons, released independently to marginal acclaim. But Jennings' country roots ran too deep to remain there; it was a question of time before he returned in earnest.
