Colorado-based group The Drunken Hearts continue to electrify with every live performance. The five-piece group creates an exciting blend of Americana music, resonating for its honesty and soulfulness. Growing from an acoustic trio to an electric powerhouse, the band continues to pick up fans with top notch musicianship and songwriting. With a new EP called Love & Thirst due out next Friday, May 6th, this band is destined for big things in 2016!

The Drunken Hearts’ forthcoming EP is a true representation of a young band and their journey through big love and heavy loss. Love & Thirst is a very real and exciting milestone for the band, and highlights not only their fiery sound, but the deep lyrical well from which they draw. Produced by multi-Grammy winner, Rob Eaton (also of Dark Star Orchestra), the album was recorded over the course of almost a year, at both Immersive Studios in Boulder and Silo Sound Studios in Denver, and features many friends, including Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth.

In anticipation of the new album, the band has shared the title track exclusively with L4LM. Tune in below:

Lead singer and songwriter Andrew McConathy spoke to us about the new release:

“I wrote ‘Love & Thirst’ in Santa Fe, NM. It was written for my girlfriend while she was living there, but over time it took on new meaning. In the fall of 2014 we lost our brother and founding band member, Ted Welles. Ted’s death sent us reeling…. however, through that loss we gained new purpose; and ultimately a renewed musical drive and thirst to take the band to the next level.

As a song, ‘Love & Thirst’ exudes everything The Drunken Hearts represent.. love, loss, rebirth, taking risks, not regretting those choices or the true path we are all on. We’d like to thank Rob Eaton for making this track shine.”

With the new EP due out next week, the band has a number of dates coming up in support, and will hit festivals like Campout For The Cause and Electric Forest in June, as well as their own festival, YarmonyGrass, from August 18-21 in Rancho Del Rio, CO.
