Vandoliers Break Into Americana Radio Top 40, Record Rowdy Daytrotter Session
Breakout Dallas/Ft Worth Cowpunks Begin Next Leg Of Tour With Old 97’s Next Week
“One of the more exciting fresh voices in fringe country-rock” -Rolling Stone Country
July 28, 2017 – Vandoliers continue their breakout year this week, debuting on the Americana Music Association radio top 40 at number 38. The band’s new album The Native has been met with a wide swath of critical praise, and the Dallas/Ft. Worth-based cowpunks have toured relentlessly behind the album. Fresh off a West Coast run, the band heads out again this weekend, including a second round of dates with Old 97’s. The band also recorded a raucous Daytrotter session, which you can listen to here.
Here’s what we’ve been hearing about Vandoliers and The Native:
"Josh Fleming and company have brilliantly combined punk, country, Tejano, and rockabilly influences to create a dynamic and modern cowpunk staple."
“Sounds like: rediscovering your parents' country record collection and realizing they’d make good punk songs”
-Rolling Stone Country - 10 New Country Artists You Need To Know May 2017
"The Native, a tighter, more focused album that still retains the devil-may-care spirit of the band’s debut but pushes the Texas band in a more ambitious direction."
"On The Native, the band locks into a unique blend of punk progressions and country train beats. Fiddle swirls in and out of the verses as lead singer Joshua Fleming howls with Rancid-esque intensity...When it comes down to it, nobody is quite making music that sounds like this."
"The Native, is a southern smoothie of influences, combining the raw angst of a Titus Andronicus or a Diarrhea Planet with the big brass gusto of Mariachi El Bronx."
“Fleming's gnarly howl mixes with Tejano-style trumpets and a rockabilly recklessness that's at once unique and familiar.”
“Vandoliers are the modern face of cowpunk.”
A tribute to the band's Texas homeland, The Native takes its listener through a swirl of East Dallas dive bars, Pantego pool halls, small towns, big cities, and the rolling ribbon of highway that stretches throughout the state. The band kicks up a storm of Western swing, electric blues, roadhouse rock & roll, Tejano, cowboy country, and twangy punk, saluting everyone from Bob Wills to ZZ Top in the process.
