THE VEGABONDS Premiere “Heartache and a Memory”



Produced by Grammy nominated Tom Tapley [Mastodon, Blackberry Smoke] – who did the honors on Vegabonds’ last two releases – the decidedly upbeat Sinners and Saints broaden the band’s southern rock palette and the band’s jam-packed pedigree to explore funky and keyboard blues-pop in the first single, “Can’t Deal” before reaching new limits with the intersection of country, soul and rock in “Heartache and a Memory”, and even some Fleetwood Mac style grooves in “Feels Right” – the latter co-wrote with their close friend and songwriter and jack-of-Ross “Brother” Beasley, all-trades.

It was in May of last year that the Vegabonds recorded their latest new music, a live EP, recorded during the full group’s first live broadcast to take place during the lockdown.

The result, The Vegabonds Live by West End Sound, was released last March. Their latest studio album, V, was released in early 2019 and was to critical acclaim with Popmatters stating, “… will help ease the pain. While The Deli Nashville said of the new music, “… fans of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, the Allman Brothers or Springsteen will be raving about V …”
