Heartless Bastards are thrilled to announce a run of summer tour dates, kicking off in Norman, OK at Opolis on July 26th. The Austin, TX-based quartet has been on the road since January, performing to sold-out rooms and earning many accolades for their superb live act. These new Western US tour dates, which include festival appearances at the Hangout Beach Music & Arts Festival, Wakarusa Music Festival, and the High Sierra Music Festival, will be supporting Heartless Bastards’s critically acclaimed new record, Arrow (Partisan Records). Tickets for these summer show will go on-sale on Friday, May 4th.

Since the release of Arrow, Heartless Bastards have performed on The Late Show with David Letterman and The Conan O’Brien Show. “[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.” NPR noted, “[Arrow] shines a spotlight on a rock star in the making,” while Paste Magazine called it “the band’s best record so far.” “Wennerstrom,” deemed the Washington Post “has one of those voices that is utterly incapable of falsehood.”
