"On The Native, the second record from Texas country band the Vandoliers, vocalist Josh Fleming and company have brilliantly combined punk, country, Tejano, and rockabilly influences to create a dynamic and modern cowpunk staple."

"[Vandoliers] unite the punk ethos and country ethos in a way that feels both brand new—I can't remember the last time an album felt this Tejano—and warmly familiar."

The American Songwriter "AS Discovery" feature is live and it's a great piece! "They’ve returned with The Native, a tighter, more focused album that still retains the devil-may-care spirit of the band’s debut but pushes the Texas band in a more ambitious direction."

Vandoliers Break New Musical Ground with "The Native" http://nodepression.com/album-review/vandoliers-break-new-musical-ground-native

North Texas twang: 5 recent records from some of the best country artists in town https://www.guidelive.com/music/2017/06/12/5-records-best-country-artists-texas-twang-deryl-dodd-eady-domino-vandoliers-medulla "There's probably not a group around these parts who embodies the term "cow punk" more than the Vandoliers. Led by Josh Fleming, who first made his name here as lead singer for punk band the Phuss, this twangy band is an all-star cast, with each member having excelled in other great local bands or even currently playing in other groups. On the new record, released by local label State Fair Records, Fleming's gnarly howl mixes with Tejano-style trumpets and a rockabilly recklessness that's at once unique and familiar. In concert, the Vandoliers energetically display why Rolling Stone recently named them an Act to Watch."

See the Vandoliers' Poignant 'Endless Summer' Video http://www.rollingstone.com/country/news/vandoliers-endless-summer-see-nostalgic-video-w489938 "The Native came out in late May and introduced Vandoliers, who landed on Rolling Stone Country's May installment of 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know, as one of the more exciting fresh voices in fringe country-rock. "Endless Summer" captures the Fort Worth, Texas, band's crunchy twang and youthful spirit."

The track is from Vandoliers' sophomore album The Native, which we ranked the second-best album of the year so far.”

The Best Texas Country and Red Dirt Songs of 2017, So Far http://www.wideopencountry.com/texas-country-red-dirt-songs-2017/ There’s nobody like Vandoliers in the Texas country space, that’s for damn sure. And truly, probably nobody like them in the overall country umbrella altogether. The punk-inspired band takes the energy to a whole new level while still capturing the overall vibe of red dirt heroes. The DFW-area band is well on their way, releasing two albums in two years and touring across the country.

Vandoliers’ Josh Fleming on Punk Beginnings, Playing D&D with the Old 97’s http://www.wideopencountry.com/vandoliers-josh-fleming-punk-beginnings-playing-dd-old-97s/ “Our guest today is Joshua Fleming of Vandoliers, one of our Bands to Watch in 2017. The Texas-based outfit traditional country music conventions with the energy of punk. That potent mixture stems from Fleming, the band’s core songwriter — and a prolific one at that.”

D Magazine - Vandoliers Are a Texas Band https://www.dmagazine.com/arts-entertainment/2017/08/vandoliers-dallas-texas-americana-music/ “On the heels of sophomore album The Native, Fleming’s band, Vandoliers, is rapidly becoming one of the most exciting new acts in all of Americana, lauded by American Songwriter, Rolling Stone, and Vice.”

Debuted on Americana Music charts at #38

BIO: An alt-country band with punk roots, Vandoliers formed in 2015, bringing together a group of Dallas-Fort Worth musicians who'd already logged more than a decade in their own punk and folk bands. Together, the guys make a different sound, mixing raw, rough-edged roots music with the focused, fiery storytelling of frontman Joshua Fleming.

"We wanted to approach country music from a rock perspective," says Fleming, who filled the band's 2016 debut, Ameri-Kinda, with anthems about hitting the highway, draining beer bottles, rallying against your opponents and, occasionally, dropping acid. Behind him, the guys kick up plenty of fast-moving dust, filling the songs with train beats, gang vocals, blasts of brass and bursts of guitar.

The band takes things up a notch further on its sophomore record, The Native. Rounded out by bassist Mark Moncrieff, drummer Guyton Sanders, fiddler Travis Curry, electric guitarist Dustin Fleming and multi-instrumentalist Cory Graves, Vandoliers pay tribute to Texas by putting their own spin on the state's musical history. The Native is exactly what its title suggests: a tour of the many subgenres that originated in the Lone Star State, from outlaw country to Texas swing, electric blues and even Tejano. At the same time, it’s a twist on those familiar sounds, delivered with a wink of the eye and a bang of the head. It's twang and tattoos, grit and guitars, honky-tonk and horns, Tejano and Telecasters. It's Vandoliers.
