The Band of Heathens with The Texas Gentlemen at Duling
With their professional lives on hold during the pandemic, The Band of Heathens found a year-long creative workaround. Every Tuesday night, the five-piece group came together via Zoom from their respective homes – from L.A. to Asheville - to host the Good Time Supper Club, a ninety-minute variety program.
That segment of the show, called Remote Transmissions, became a much-anticipated fan favorite each week. And it is now the title of their latest album, featuring covers of ten classic songs with guest vocals by the likes of Margo Price, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Charlie Starr.
It's just the latest innovative move for The Band Of Heathens, who over the last fifteen years have released nine acclaimed albums of roots-rock originals, played festivals like Bonnaroo and South by Southwest, and toured the world many times over (Rolling Stone calls them “a smoking live band”), all while remaining that rarest of birds – a truly independent group.
