The Band of Heathens are celebrating ten years together?! Yep, and founding members Ed Jurdi (guitar, keys, vocals) and Gordy Quist (guitar, vocals) along with Trevor Nealon (keys, vocals), Richard Millsap (drums, vocals) and Scott Davis (bass, vocals), are gonna celebrate all year long!
Fresh off the boat from the Sirius XM Outlaw Country Cruise, this Austin, TX based world class rock n roll outfit has two new releases slated for 2016, beginning with the Green Grass EP, which will premiere four new BOH originals and a faithful cover of The Band’s “Bessie Smith,” featuring Joe Fletcher.
In the coming months, they will be sailing the high seas aboard Kid Rock’s 7th Annual Chillin’ The Most Cruise, hitting select markets in the Rockies, Midwest and the Southeast and are set to return to The Ride Festival in Telluride, CO with Pearl Jam and many others later in the year. (Kid Rock and Pearl JAM shows?! Badass!)
Fans will receive a free digital download of the five-song limited edition EP, Green Grass, with all advance ticket purchases. The CD version will only be available at their shows and in the web store: www.bandofheathens.com/music.
For a limited time anyone can download the title track for free at http://bit.ly/BOH_GreenGrass_2016. A full album is tentatively slated for release in September. Can’t wait!
