We set out to set explore modern indulgences that are fun as hell when you're in them, but ultimately leave you feeling exhausted.

The Bandoliers will be releasing their debut music video in support of their recent single “Leslie” on Thursday, August 26, 2015 via YouTube.

Directed by Kenneth Brown and written by Benjamin Font, the video was filmed in Los Angeles and depicts a dark and drug fueled night between two apparent strangers.

“Leslie” has been apart of regular rotation on hometown radio in Music City as part of their recent success of being voted into the final four of the prestigious Music City Mayhem competition hosted by Lightning 100 in Nashville. With over 300 hopeful bands that entered the competition, only 5 performed for a packed showcase at Marathon Music Works filled with industry influencers and devout music fans.

The Bandoliers are ramping up for Fall tour dates across the Southeast United States with a run in Texas and California to support their most recent homonyously titled album. The band is also working on their third, full-length album due in 2016.

About The Bandoliers
With a healthy dose of bluesy swagger and a nod to their Southern roots, The Bandoliers are making their mark in the rock world. Formed in 2011, the band consists of Rusty Redden, Eric Vines, Hunter Van Houten and John Mark Capers, all talented multi-instrumentalists who cite Queens of the Stone Age and, fellow Nashvillians, The Raconteurs as musical inspirations. In 2015, they beat out over four hundred bands to make the top four in Lightning 100’s Music City Mayhem competition, and are planning a tour in 2016 to support the release of their upcoming third album. The new album promises to build on their previous efforts, delving into sounds previously unexplored and building on their musical chemistry. Their first release, Prove Yourself, set them apart from the mainstream with eerily tuned-down pianos and distorted gang vocals, firmly establishing the band as creative risk-takers. Currently showcasing music from their sophomore release, Leslie, you can catch them live at clubs in and around Nashville, delivering their signature energy-driven performances to an increasingly devoted following.
