Volk, Soul Butchers, The Molice
Friday, May 17, 8pm, $5
Country-fried Nashville rock’n’roll duo
(Mofos and The Irving Klaws are no longer on the bill…)
Lightning-charged duo VOLK is a Molotov cocktail of high-octane Rock & Roll and Honky-Tonking Country swagger. Their live performances explode with Chris Lowe’s (TX, guitar) and Eleot Reich’s (CA, drums) Motor City energy and Nashvegas pageantry. They boast musical influences ranging from the Carter Family to Little Richard to Buck Owens to ACDC. VOLK is loud suits and loud amps, shiny dresses and shiny drum sets; it’s growling tones and thunderous beats; VOLK is Rock & Roll, Country-Fried.
Since settling for greener pastures in Nashville in 2017, VOLK has opened for such acts as Diarrhea Planet (TN), Royal Thunder (GA), Lincoln Durham (TX), Left Lane Cruiser (IN), Mayeux and Broussard (TX), The Ghost Wolves (TX), and Brother O Brother (IN). Rabid road warriors, VOLK played almost 200 shows in 2018 through 17 states across the Southeast, Midwest, and South Central US. Volk have also toured Germany, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, and Canada.
VOLK released their sophomore EP, Average American Band, through Romanus Records (IN) on November, 17th, 2018 and they’ve already sold out of their first pressing!
“NASHVILLE DUO VOLK COULD GET THE GIG OF HOUSE BAND FOR A HONKY-TONK IN HELL WITH IT’S GNARLY BLUES RIFFS, DEEP GROOVES, RIPPING DISTORTION AND PATSY-CLINE-ON-STEROIDS BRAND OF COUNTRY-WESTERN MEETS GLAM-ROCK.”
– Charlotte Observer
“IT’S LIKE HEARING REAL ROCK N’ ROLL FOR THE FIRST TIME IN YEARS.”
– Modern Music Maker
“VOLK IS ONE OF THE BUSIEST LOCAL ACTS YOU MAY NEVER HAVE HEARD OF… AVERAGE AMERICAN’S FOUR SONGS BRIM WITH STADIUM-SIZE RIFFS AND SPUNKY, SOULFUL SINGING, DISTILLING AN ALBUM’S WORTH OF IDEAS INTO A PUNK-LENGTH ALBUM.”
– Nashville Scene
