Cincinnati-spawned band to release fifth album, play Woodward Theater in June
Former Cincinnati-based (now Austin, Texas headquartered) band Heartless Bastards have announced the release of its fifth album, Restless Ones, on the Partisan Records imprint on June 16. It’s the band’s first new full-length since 2012’s acclaimed Arrow, the group’s debut for Partisan. (The band took local group Wussy on tour after Arrow's release.)The Bastards, who recently opened some arena concert dates for Rock music legend Bob Seger, also announced a string of tour dates beginning in June that will bring them back to Cincinnati for a two-night stand at Woodward Theater. The band plays the newly remodeled/reopened Over-the-Rhine venue June 25-26 with opener Craig Finn (frontman for The Hold Steady).
A limited number of tickets for the Woodward shows are available starting today at noon through a special songkick.com presale. Click here for details.
During their journey, The Heartless
Bastards have experienced a few personnel changes and a record label
switch, as well as a major relocation from Cincinnati to Austin, Tex.,
all of which occurred within a few years. The one constant has been the original
songs, guitar playing and vocals of Erika Wennerstrom.
