Named one of Alternative Press’ “100 Bands You Need To Know” for 2013, Hoist The Colors is a seven-piece melting pot of music and culture from Los Angeles. Armed with mandolins, banjos, guitars, drums and fiddles, the band’s unique amalgam of punk rock, traditional Irish music, American folk and bluegrass is upbeat and refreshing.
Hoist the Color got their start when singer/songwriter Josh Linden started learning Irish rebel songs and Pogues covers on a bunch of instruments they didn’t really even know how to play. That was 2007. Fast forward to 2013 and the band has two incredible albums, 2011’s Second City and 2012’s Miles To Go Before We Sleep, and has shared the stage with the likes of Ignite, Authority Zero, The English Beat, The Black Pacific, The Young Dubliners and many more.
The band’s Hardline Entertainment debut, Miles To Go Before We Sleep, put the band on the map nationally, garnering rave reviews from critics across the country with songs like “Gold,” “Dance Through the Days” and “Gordie Lachance,” which was made into a video in 2012.
Hoist the Colors will perform those songs and more from Miles To Go Before We Sleep on their upcoming west coast tour. Don’t miss out!
