with FaceMan & The Outfit
Monday, December 31st
On the heels of their critically acclaimed debut record, A Royal Battle, Denver’s own Strange Americans recently revealed that they will be ringing in the New Year at The Hi-Dive with support from FaceMan and The Outfit. When a band takes a music-loving town like Denver by storm, you have to stand up and take note. With accolades pouring in from local and regional press, 2012 was Strange Americans’ best year yet and critics and fans alike agree this is only the beginning for the talented young band. Their ability to blend an authentic and road-weary, brown-boot Americana feel with a driving rock edge makes their sound ear candy for a large group of music lovers in Colorado and beyond. Strange Americans are poised in a fighting stance, ready to bring A Royal Battle to even more ears by racking up the miles and visiting cities across the country as they continue to build their fan base in Colorado with larger shows. This may be your last chance to catch these guys in the intimacy of a club like The Hi-Dive! Don’t miss out!
While Denver’s near unanimous enthusiasm for A Royal Battle has been well earned, the potential of this album’s impact on the national scene is staggering and listeners lucky enough to be in-the-know remain awed by it months after its release (as evidenced by the album’s recent appearance as one of Marquee Magazine’s 10 Best Local Releases of 2012). Though drawing comparisons to their sound is difficult, Strange Americans have been mentioned in the same breath as everyone from The Lumineers and Ryan Adams to Gaslight Anthem and Lucero.
While the saying goes that “no one knows what the future holds,” Strange Americans are all but a sure thing…make sure you can count yourself among the lucky ones who will be able to say “I knew about Strange Americans before they sold-out Red Rocks.”
