Restless Ones is the band’s fifth album and was produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Swans). Restless Ones was tracked in August 2014 during a 10-day session at El Paso, TX’s renowned Sonic Ranch. Located on 2,300 acres of pecan orchards bordering the Rio Grande and Mexico, the studio – the largest residential recording complex in the world – provided the perfect setting, miles away from all real world responsibilities and thus able to fully invest themselves in the act of creation.

“We took a lot of chances,” says singer/songwriter Erika Wennerstrom says, “taking the sounds in different directions in order to grow. I don’t ever want to make the same album twice.”

Heartless Bastards — Wennerstrom, guitarist Mark Nathan, bassist Jesse Ebaugh, and drummer Dave Colvin — have spent the past decade in motion, boldly pushing their unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll into new shapes over four acclaimed albums and nearly non-stop roadwork. Now, withRestless Ones, the band sets out once again, blazing a path to a place of shifting moods, seasoned songcraft, and unbridled spontaneity. Restless Ones is the follow-up to 2012’s breakthrough Arrow, the album finds Wennerstrom exploring as-yet-unvisited avenues of sound and sensation, her bravery and ambition readily apparent in the emotional timbre and the sheer physicality of her songs. Her spellbinding vocals are of course front and center, her one-of-a-kind voice as primal, cathartic, and indefinable as ever.

Heartless Bastards are setting off on a summer tour this June with support from Craig Finn (of The Hold Steady). The tour kicks off on June 10 at the Thirsty Hippo in Hattiesburg, MS taking them across the east coast and Midwest before ending on July 2 at Trees in Dallas, TX. All tour and festival dates are listed below and can be found on their interactive website experience RestlessOnes.net. Their fans will also be able to share photos, videos and check out new music directly from the band.
