The Band of Heathens

Austin quintet The Band of Heathens have announced their new album Duende, to be released on January 13th - and the group will make a stop in Lubbock at the Cactus Theater on February 17 in support of the album.

Duende, the title of The Band of Heathens’ fifth studio album (and eighth overall), marks their tenth anniversary as a group. It’s an apt name for a record whose themes explore the collective search for connection and communion in a technology-fueled world increasingly splintered, distracted and lonely. As band co-founder Ed Jurdi, who first learned of the term, explains, “It’s the essence of the artist,” or as partner Gordy Quist says, “It’s a word we don’t have an equivalent for in English, artistically, that’s where we tried to set the bar, to do what this band does best.”

Special guest opener:  Singer-songwriter Charlie Stout
