Cincinnati-based garage-rockers, Heartless Bastards just unveiled plans for a winter tour through the states. Reveling on the steam of their late-great full-length LP, Restless Ones, courtesy of Partisan Records, this quartet seeks to take rock n’ roll communion on the road.
Fronted by lead-vocalist/multi-instrumentalist, Erika Wennerstrom, Heartless Bastards kicks things off in apt-fashion this coming February 18 at Baton Rouge’s own Spanish Moon. For most of the tour these Ohioans will sputter across much of the Southeast, hitting personalized venues such as: Athens’ Georgia Theatre, The Blind Tiger in Greensboro, NC, and Louisville’s Headliners Music Hall before veering off the-beaten-path to try their luck at Dayton, Ohio’s Oddbodys and finishing out at Rose Music Hall in Columbia, MO.
Armed to the gills with new material from their recent effort, Restless Ones, Heartless Bastards will strewn through such new favorites as: “Gates of Dawn,” “Black Cloud,” and “Hi-Line” with none-other than Justin Osborne’s Susto as the very-qualified opener to usher in a tour riddled of sonic-bliss.
Band-leader, Erika Wennerstrom expresses her glee for the forthcoming tour:
“With the great time we had this past year on the road and the release of Restless Ones, 2015 was a fantastic year! We’re ecstatic to get back out in 2016 to some great cities we missed this past year and continue to share our recent album and old favorite songs with our fans. We hope your year’s off to a great start and that we see you soon. I’ve got a great feeling about 2016.”
