Heartless Bastards Announce October And November Tour Dates

Partisan Records is excited to announce that Heartless Bastards have confirmed a run of headlining tour dates in October and November, in addition to the previously announced August and September dates. The tour marks their first time back in major cities including Chicago, New York, Boston, Philadelphia, and Washington since the album's release, culminating with a show in the band's hometown of Austin, TX with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.

Since the February release of Arrow, Heartless Bastards have toured much of the country, playing both club dates and festivals, including Hangout Music Festival, Pickathon Festival, and Wakarusa Music Festival. The band has played songs off of their critically acclaimed record on Late Show with David Letterman and Conan, and the record received NPR's First Listen treatment upon its release.  

"[Wennerstrom's] band's crushing fourth LP sets the quartet alongside Ohio kin the Black Keys as front-line blues-rock modernists, with her writhing vocals at the center," hailed Rolling Stone. Entertainment Weekly included Arrow in their "Must List," praising the "strident yet emotionally nuanced vocals of frontwoman Erika Wennerstrom, which light up every track." "Wennerstrom," deemed the Washington Post "has one of those voices that is utterly incapable of falsehood."
