HAVE GUN, WILL TRAVEL/Postcards From The Friendly City-Released 2/9/2010!

Available February 9, 2010!

Now, when it comes to Americana/Roots-type bands, it takes a lot to impress me.  In a genre that strikes me as being lacklustre and unimaginative, there have been very few bands that have made me stand up and cheer.

Have Gun, Will Travel are one of those bands!

While the band build their musical foundation on what many would call Americana or Alterna-Country (or even Yee-Halternative), they also bring a sense of wonderment, excitement, innocence, experimentation and some keen Pop smarts to the table.  While not exactly XTC, they do approach their music making in the same strange, warped and unique way.

Have Gun, Will Travel are traditional enough to attract the hardcore Americana fan yet different enough to attract those who are not normally impressed.  Heck, they are good enough to attract everyone in between!

I recommend that you do two things before the album hits the streets:

1. Visit Suburban Home Records website HERE and have a listen
