Band of Horses have just finalized the record due in March 2006 on SubPop. They have had great reception from Southern audiences. About the time they signed to SubPop, the band did a short Deep South tour with Iron & Wine. The band's debut release was produced with Phil Ek (Doug Martsch from Halo Benders to 2002's solo Now You Know and also SubPop's own The Shins.)
Band of Horses will quickly get sound comparisons to My Morning Jacket; mainly due to the shared love of thick reverb between Jim James and Band of Horses' Ben Bridwell.
While we wait for the record, SubPop is also selling a previously tour-only limited-pressed EP which features 3 demos and 3 live recordings.
Band of Horses will leave home for a short 8 date tour up the West Coast with Jagjaguwar's Okkervil River.
