Simple Things

By: Laurie Gallardo

At a time when it feels as though slowing down is next to impossible, The Band of Heathens forges through all the doomscrolling with a deep appreciation for the Simple Things.

Their new album, out March 17, includes recent single releases “Stormy Weather,” “Heartless Year” and today’s AMM featured track “Don’t Let the Darkness,” each connected by the common thread of resilience in the midst of challenging times – the word “challenging” being an understatement, of course.

The Band of Heathens have a couple more hometown shows at C-Boy’s Heart and Soul before heading out on tour toward the end of this month. Check them out tomorrow night, Wednesday March 8 at C-Boy’s at 10 p.m., followed by songwriter Caroline Hale at midnight. If you’re around earlier for happy hour, don’t miss The Moeller Brothers at 6:30 p.m.

This one gets loud, bold, experimental in many parts, powered by guitar and unapologetic vitality, all inspired […]
