Dallas-based country punks Vandoliers have a new album Forever and, in support, will be performing at JJ's Bohemia on Aug. 11.

The label debut is getting great coverage from Rolling Stone Country, American Songwriter, Dying Scene, Bluegrass Situation, The Boot, and others.

Review for Vandoliers:

Vandoliers are the next wave of Texas music. The six-piece Dallas-Fort Worth group channels all that makes this vast state unique: tradition, modernity, audacity, grit, and—of course—size. Produced and recorded by Adam Hill (Low Cut Connie, The Bo-Keys, Deer Tick, Don Bryant, Zeshan B) at American Recording Studios in Memphis, the band’s third album (and first with Bloodshot) Forever is a mix of defiant punk, rugged Red Dirt country, and vibrant Tejano. The full-length’s 10 songs blend emblematic rock ‘n’ roll with bold horns, violin, and a slather of twang reflecting where the band is from, where they’ve been and, eventually, where they’ll be headed. It’s regional and universal all the same.

Formed in 2015, the self-proclaimed "Converse cowboys" are a group of Dallas-Fort Worth musicians who have each logged more than a decade in their own respective punk, folk and country bands. Vandoliers mix raw, rough-edged roots music with the focused, fiery storytelling of frontman Joshua Fleming. Behind him, the band—bassist Mark Moncrieff, drummer Guyton Sanders, fiddler Travis Curry, electric guitarist Dustin Fleming, and multi-instrumentalist Cory Graves – have honed in on a sound that’s uniquely their own, equally informed by the country and Tex-Mex sounds of their home state and the unbridled music of their youth. With their Bloodshot Records debut, they’ve galvanized these influences to enter into a new frontier of Texas country-punk, one that takes cues from the past, but carries them to refreshing new heights. It's twang and tattoos, grit and guitars, honky-tonk and horns.
