CLAMS & JAMS VOL 1
As many of you know, we record most of our live shows and make the recordings available at the end of each night on a USB drive as well as at live.bandofheathens.com. Today, we are releasing what we hope to be the first of many compilations as a FREE download called Clams & Jams Vol 1. It’s a ”best of” of sorts, taken mostly from this last East Coast tour.It’s a free download, and if you dig it please share with your friends. To DOWNLOAD, click the cover image to the left or click here.
NEW: KEEP AUSTIN BEARD SHIRTS – FREE SHIPPING FOR A LIMITED TIME (US ORDERS)
Yes you’ve probably heard of “Keep Austin Weird”, but we’re pleased to share the “Keep Austin Beard” shirt, featuring the face (and beard) of our own keyboardist Trevor Nealon.
These shirts were circulating around Austin and went out of print, but we’re bringing them back and offering FREE SHIPPING for a limited time. Get one and help keep Austin Beard.
#2 AT AMERICANA RADIO
Sunday Morning Record is sitting at #2 on the Americana Radio Chart! Many thanks to all of the DJs and stations who have supported the band and continue to spin the music. We’re gearing up for the 2nd leg of the release tour with stops in NC, TN, GA, AR, and TX before heading to the West Coast. Thanks to everyone at press and radio for helping to pave the way for us as we continue to tour to support Sunday Morning Record.
On the album release front, we couldn’t be happier with the support we’ve been getting from all of you with Sunday Morning Record. We started recording the album almost a year ago, worked on it in short bursts, and then we kept adding more and more songs to the list of what we wanted to record, so it took a while. It’s been satisfying finally working up these tunes for the live show and getting some energy back from all of you at the shows. They’re still evolving, but they’re feeling good. I guess they’re really never done evolving anyway.
WHAT WE’RE LISTENING TO
Some new (and old) music to check out… We’ve been listening to Bobby Charles self-titled album, as well as Zeus’s album “Busting Visions”. It’s crazy. And do yourself a favor and pick up the Wood Brothers new album “The Muse”. It’s fantastic start to finish. Produced by Buddy Miller.
Check them out below. We hope you dig it. You can stream on Spotify and/or we hope you’ll support the artists by purchasing these records.

Thanks for your support! We feel so fortunate to get to make the music that feeds
