The Band Of Heathens

New album ‘Simple Things’

Out March 17, 2023

The Band Of Heathens, the Austin-based, independent country rock and roll group led by dual lead vocalists and band songwriters Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist, have announced the release of Simple Things, their ninth studio album, to be released March 17 on their own label BOH Records. The group will also tour the U.S. to promote the album (link to dates below).
Accompanying the announcement are two new tracks “Heartless Year” and “Stormy Weather” (clips below).

The Band of Heathens have remained proudly, fiercely independent—turning down label offers, maintaining complete ownership of their catalog, building their audience one show at a time. From their humble roots as a rag tag local bar band – where they first formed in the early 2000’s to award winning, streaming giant status (they have amassed 300 Million plus streams across their catalog).

“I see a lot of artists out there screaming, ‘Hey, we’re outlaws, we’re independent!’ and they’re signed to a major label and live completely within that model. We’ve been the ultimate indie band for 17 years.”

“Many times in the past, we’d take a song and stretch to make it into something else sonically, because that’s exciting and fun to do in the studio. This time around, we tried to use some restraint and embraced our first instincts, trusting the songs.”

Their self produced set was recorded in their hometown of Austin, in The Finishing School, which was founded by the band’s close friend and sometimes producer George Reiff. Quist took over and upgraded the studio after Reiff passed away in 2017.
