Band of Heathens with Uncle Lucius Since emerging as a favorite new live band out of Austin TX in the late 2000s, the Band of Heathens has toured relentlessly, building a devoted following and landing on some of the finest stages in music. Over three studio albums and hundreds of shows each year, theyve evolved as a group and broadened their sound.Their most recent studio album Top Hat Crown & The Clapmasters Son spiked the already potent punch with a dash of jammy psychedelia. And their four-disc, two- volume, live DVD release called the Double Down - Live in Denver (Vol. 1 & 2) features the bands live variations and extensions of original material mostly from their last two studio albums. The rich and righteous vocal harmonies and legendary live shows that set TBoH apart from the beginning have just gotten better.In 2012 The Band of Heathens experienced the first lineup change in 4 years with the departure of Colin Brooks, Seth Whitney, and John Chipman. So going forward, songwriting frontmen Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist are complimented by the rhythm section of drummer Richard Millsap, bassist Ryan Bowman and keyboard player Trevor Nealon. With a growing resume of key shows and broadcasts to their credit, (Bonnaroo, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits TV Show and ACL Festival among them), the slightly rejiggered Band of Heathens has never enjoyed so much renown or optimism.Save

"The Band of Heathens... kinda like if Rimbaud, Keats, and Rilke strapped on guitars and hooked up with a bad ass rhythm section... literary and sinfully cool."
