The Band of Horses Giveaway
American indie rock group Band of Horses was formed in 2004. Since their early beginnings, the lineup has seen some changes but the evasive lyrical quality remains. This five piece band has gained quite the following, and most recently the band released Acoustic at the Ryman in February 2014. PromoWest North Shore, Opus One and the Warhol’s Sound Series present Band of Horses with special guest Midlake at Stage AE on July 20.
Band of Horses formed when Carissa’s Weird, the lead singer’s previous band, dissolved. The band’s debut album Everything All the Time was released in 2006. After band members began to leave, the remaining few found new members to play with and they created new music. Their music is dreamlike with a unique sound and contemplative lyrics, and Band of Horses has maintained a perfect understanding of the middle ground between surreal, artistic concepts and accessible rock. Their 2010 release Infinite Arms was nominated for a Grammy and made it on several “Best Of” lists for 2010. Mirage Rock showed up in the top 15 on Billboard charts in 2012. Since then, the band has toured with Iron and Wine and performed at Firefly Music Festival on June 20.
Band of Horses is on tour for the bulk of the summer with international shows and dates in the US.
