The brainchild of Ben Bridwell, Band of Horses have gradually formed, under Ben’s careful guide, into one of the finest contemporary Rock and Roll bands in America.
Formed out of the ashes of former band Carissa's Wierd, Ben Bridwell led other former members in forming Band Of Horses in 2004. Like every band in Seattle they dreamed of signing to legendary label Sub Pop, former home of Nirvana and one of the most prestigious indie labels in the world. After opening for label act ‘Iron & Wine’, Sub Pop’s attention was captured and when it came to releasing their Debut EP in 2005 it was sold at shows and on Sub Pop’s website.
This was the start of a fruitful partnership and in 2006 Sub Pop’s released ‘Everything All the Time’, the band’s debut album. The album was critically acclaimed and spawned a surprising anthem in ‘The Funeral’. The song has been synced with a number of TV shows, adverts and games and the band were able to reach a wider audience than ever before when they played the ‘Late Show with David Letterman’. Their second album ‘Cease To Begin’ showed signs of this new found success when it reached 35 on the Billboard album charts and appeared in numerous ‘best of year’ lists.
The success continued for the band as they began to play huge festival stages and even got major label distribution for their next two albums. They accomplished all this while staying true to Ben’s vision for the band and it’s that artistic integrity that really resonates with their fan base and will make sure they remain a rock and roll staple for years to come. Now, you can catch them performing live at The Orpheum Theatre on Sunday, August 5!
