Today, Americana rock band The Drunken Hearts announce a run of December tour dates in support of their recent album release, The Prize.  The Drunken Hearts bring their raw, outlaw country music to 5 stops in the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Northwest beginning December 7th, 2018, before heading back to Denver for a very special New Year’s run. Back in their home state of Colorado, The Drunken Hearts head to Vail and Fort Collins on December 28th and 29th for special Yarmony Holiday Heater shows before heading to Denver’s Ogden Theatre with The Infamous String Dusters on December 30th.  See all currently confirmed dates, including November dates in the South, listed below. Tickets available at www.thedrunkenhearts.com

From their humble inception as an acoustic trio, The Drunken Hearts have evolved into an electric five-piece that is captivating audiences across the country. As Pop Matters describes, The Drunken Hearts are an “assertive mix of hard-driving Southern rock, arresting outlaw country and mix-and-mash-up alt-Americana,” with 303 Magazine praising, “Their music is raw Americana-rock, with a touch of country and a sprinkle of folk, and the result is a steaming and raucous sound full of emotion and energy.” Today, the band releases the video for “Broken Things,” from The Prize. Watch here.

The Drunken Hearts fearlessly bottle a tempestuous, yet honest brand of Americana music — infusing spirited vocals with electric and acoustic instruments, and crafting heartfelt songs that are resonating with crowds everywhere. Originally an outlet for lead singer and acoustic guitarist Andrew McConathy, McConathy knew in his heart the band must expand musically to satisfy a growing songbook of original material. It was this ideal that inspired a band capable of writing and performing songs that convey whispers of love and loss, while also delivering full-on rock anthems that chase down the American dream. 

With this evolution, the band recently released their most acclaimed album to date, The Prize, in March of 2018 — an album that fully realizes the unique yet familiar sound the five musicians evoke when they create and perform together night after night. The ten songs featured on The Prize seamlessly unite their poetic and thoughtful songwriting with impressive musicianship to bring each track alive. From the vulnerable and haunting, “Seasons,” to the rowdy honkytonk-inspired “Broken Things,” The Prize is a powerful statement to where The Drunken Hearts currently are, yet more importantly— where they are going. Listen to the album here.
