Vandoliers are a six-piece from the Dallas area and they are also the latest addition to Bloodshot Records. To say they’re a good fit for Bloodshot is a bit of an understatement. Forever is their third album and obviously their first for Bloodshot. The track below rips. Here’s some info on the band from Bloodshot’s PR team.

Formed in 2015, the self-proclaimed “Converse cowboys” are a group of Dallas-Fort Worth musicians who have each logged more than a decade in their own respective punk, folk and country bands. Vandoliers mix raw, rough-edged roots music with the focused, fiery storytelling of frontman Joshua Fleming. Behind him, the band—bassist Mark Moncrieff, drummer Guyton Sanders, fiddler Travis Curry, electric guitarist Dustin Fleming, and multi-instrumentalist Cory Graves – have honed in on a sound that’s uniquely their own, equally informed by the country and Tex-Mex sounds of their home state and the unbridled music of their youth. With their Bloodshot Records debut, they’ve galvanized these influences to enter into a new frontier of Texas country-punk, one that takes cues from the past, but carries them to refreshing new heights. It’s twang and tattoos, grit and guitars, honky-tonk and horns.
