Album release party Nov 3 @ Wise Hall, Victoria, BC
Singles “Lies” & "It Don't Matter"
Wooden Horsemen deliver an infectious charge of electrified grooves, commanding a mix of gritty blues vocals and soulful, driving rhythms.
“The songs remain embedded in the Folk and Blues that coloured the band’s 2013 debut album, Wooden Horsemen. But they also exude an open-mindedness, making full use of the now seven-piece studio outfit’s ability to play fun and danceable horn music.” The Georgia Straight
Wooden Horsemen's 'Past Lives' stands both as a fiery testament to the gospel spirit of the American South and an intimate acknowledgement of the relationship between music and spirituality.
Influenced by the discovery of Alan Lomax's 'American Patchwork' series, tracks such as 'I've Been Changed' and 'You Better Mind' aim to harness the raw spirit of gospel all while maintaining the band's signature modern rock n' roll sound.
Swampy, sweaty and downright dirty blues lay the foundation for ethereal harmonies and a blazing horn section, resulting in a gritty, powerful and ultimately unforgettable live experience.
Wooden Horsemen has been a constant on the Western Canadian festival circuit since the release of ‘Sentient’ in 2016, and the band looks forward to hitting the road once again with the release of ‘Past Lives’ in November of 2018.
