With a healthy dose of bluesy swagger and a nod to their Southern roots, The Bandoliers are making their mark in the rock world. Formed in 2011, the band consists of Eric Vines, Hunter Van Houten and John Mark Capers, all talented multi-instrumentalists who cite Queens of the Stone Age and The Raconteurs as musical inspirations.
In 2015, they beat out over four hundred bands to make the top four in Lightning 100’s Music City Mayhem competition, were finalists for Music City Big Break and, in 2016, were selected for Road to Bonaroo.
Their first release, Prove Yourself, set them apart from the mainstream with eerily tuned-down pianos and distorted gang vocals, firmly establishing the band as creative risk-takers. The new album promises to build on their previous efforts, delving into sounds previously unexplored and building on their musical chemistry.
