Rolling Stone Says Vandoliers Are A “New Country Artist You Need To Know,” New Album The Native Out May 26th

Hard-charging Dallas-Ft. Worth band Vandoliers are being called a “New Country Artist You Need To Know” in Rolling Stone Country’s May 2017 round-up.

RS says the band “sounds like: rediscovering your parents' country record collection and realizing they’d make good punk songs” and recommends Vandoliers “for fans of: Old 97's; Titus Andronicus; guitars, Cadillacs and hillbilly music.”

Fiercely proud of their homeland, Vandoliers put their own spin on the Texas country tradition with new album The Native, doubling down on their modern approach to traditional influences.

A tribute to the band's Texas homeland, The Native, out May 26th on State Fair Records, 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.

Watch a searing live performance of album standout “Endless Summer” here.

Recorded in the same studio where Willie Nelson made Red Headed Stranger, The Native was tracked to tape by producer John Pedigo of The O’s. The album was finished in four days, capturing the spark and spunk of a live band whose tour dates have included shows with the Jayhawks, Old 97's and Reverend Horton Heat. Vandoliers will be on the road throughout the summer, full list of tour dates here.
