I recently went out to the Basement to see Band Of Heathens not too long ago, and had a really good time with them and Hayes Carll who was the opening act that night. In fact I almost enjoyed their set more than Mr. Hayes Carll, I’m not concerned with anybody that wishes to digress with me on that.
Since then both bands have been burning up the roads all over America and recently the Band Of Heathens released some more tour dates I wanted to bring to your attention. Their latest album called “Duende” came out in January this year, and you can darn sure BET it makes my TOP 50 of 2017 at midway through the year already.
From their website:
The group recently premiered their new song “Trouble Came Early” with Relix. The group describes how the inspiration for the song “came about from reading A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage, after a strange night out we had in a bar after a show. Some guy who was blacked-out drunk ended up pulling a knife and coming after us. Fortunately everybody made it out alive, and a seed was planted for the classic character who can’t escape the call of the bars.”
