Sons of Fathers - "Hell and Back" (video) (Premiere)

by PopMatters Staff

12 March 2014

Emerging Americana band Sons of Fathers continue their ascent with the new video "Hell and Back".

Sons of Fathers blew out the doors of Nashville’s Mercy Lounge last year at the Americana Festival. We sat up close, totally taken by the band’s passion and musical chops. This Texas group brings the rawk to the twang in most winning fashion. So, it’s perhaps not so surprising that influences like the Beatles, Bob Dylan and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young cozy up with Texas singer-songwriters such as Robert Earl Keen, Willis Alan Ramsey, Roger Miller. Today we have the pleasure of premiering the new video for “Hell and Back”, which bandmember David Beck says “is the first rack we want to release to ya’ll. We’ve all been there. This is the world’s story. Enjoy.” Meanwhile you can catch Sons of Fathers this week at SXSW (dates below).
