The Heartless Bastards have just announced their new album, “The Mountain” will drop January 20, 2009. Its been almost three years since their last disc, “All This Time” was released to critical acclaim. Rolling Stone remarked “The Heartless Bastards are a small-town band who are ready to show the big city no mercy.”


After seeing the now three piece band perform late night at Emo’s in Austin, it’s clear that things definitely have not changed. Even with a revamped band to back Erika Wennerstrom’s massive vocals and soulful sound, they still deliver like a garage band that could also rock an arena. Erika holed up in an apartment for 6 months to write “The Mountain,” and with help from producer Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Trail of Dead), there’s no doubt this album will have been worth the wait.

    First off I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question in which
    I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out. I do take pleasure in writing
    however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost
    simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
