Heartless Bastards was formed in 2003 in Cincinnati, Ohio and are led by Erika Wennerstrom. They are now touring in support of their fifth album – Restless Ones – released earlier this Summer. They will be playing the Majestic Theater on Saturday, September 26, 2015.
We saw them a few years ago, and they rocked real hard. So we are really looking forward to seeing them again!
Opening for Heartless Bastards is Alberta Cross – “…a British take on Southern rock…the seismic guitars and high vocals look to My Morning Jacket, Kings of Leon and Crazy Horse…but Alberta Cross sets aside those American bands’ redemptive undercurrents of blues and gospel; instead it plunges into the very English despair of bands like Pink Floyd.” (New York Times)
Sounds good, doesn’t it? I’ve got high hopes for their set too!
Alberta Cross will be releasing their third (and self-titled) album next month. Here is one of the songs performed at Jam in the Van during SXSW earlier this year.
