The Heartless Bastards

In Studio and On the Road!

The latest incarnation of the Critically Acclaimed Heartless Bastards: One year ago, Erika Wennerstrom packed her bags - leaving Dayton behind and headed west for Austin to write her new record, working with producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead, Patty Griffin). She locked herself behind the door of a meager apartment and wrote songs for six months straight. Wennerstrom added Dave Colvin on drums and bassist Jesse Ebaugh to bring this new renaissance of Heartless Bastards to fruition!

Fat Possum Records is excited to announce that this exciting new incarnation of The Heartless Bastards are set to release their third record on January 20, 2009. The forthcoming record is called The Mountain.

Tonight in Cambridge: The Heartless Bastards are working out the kinks, touring the United States on dates with Langhorne Slim and Dead Confederate - (Both are RSL Best of 2008 Artists) Head on out to these dates - it's a great chance to shake out any bugs and share the sound of The Heartless Bastards with folks coast to coast. Appearing on the bill tonight, Tennessee's Those Darlins (streaming audio) open for The Heartless Bastards, who in turn, warm up the stage for Langhorne Slim (download mp3 - checkout a video!).
