2017 has been off to a great start! The Band of Heathens released Duende on January 13 and the record spent 2 weeks at #1 on the Americana Radio Chart! We kicked off the year with Delbert McClinton's Sandy Beaches Cruise, alongside Delbert and countless wonderful bands. After a week on the seas, we made our way up the east coast, opening a gig for Los Lobos and then being joined on a run by a great band out of NY, The National Reserve. A day off in New York had us making the rounds for press at Sirius XM, Paste Magazine, and Relix Magazine. After a cold January in the north east, we spent an even colder February in the mid west, hitting favorites like The Ark in Ann Arbor, MI and new spots like Daytrotter in Davenport, IA. We had a strong finish in Texas at the end of that run and now its sit and wait until SXSW in Austin. Some things to look forward to this year are a run in April with fellow Texan Hayes Carll, where we will be opening the show with a Heathens set and then backing Hayes, and a jaunt across the Atlantic, for a May Europe run.

Keep On Keepin' On!
