An alt-country band with punk roots, Vandoliers comprise a group of accomplished Dallas-Fort Worth musicians who had already logged more than a decade in their own respective punk and folk bands before coming together in 2015.

Mixing raw, rough-edged roots music with the focused, fiery storytelling of frontman Joshua Fleming, the band approaches country music from a rock perspective. They cleverly dub their unique brand of music “Ameri-Kinda,” which is also the name of their debut album. Dubbed “modern-day outlaw country” by No Depression magazine, Vandoliers adeptly combine grit and guitars, honky-tonk and horns, and Tejano and Telecasters.

Known for their high-energy live shows, Vandoliers will be touring extensively throughout the U.S. this year, sharing the stage with the likes of Lucinda Williams, Mavis Staples and the Jayhawks.
