New Music Video Premier on Alternate Root Magazine




"Psychedelic Country out of Austin, Texas as The Lonesome Heroes put a road song for our video premier of "Western Style Saloons". The Lonesome Heroes feel that '”Western Style Saloons” explores the sad reality that years of touring mostly amounts to worn out vans, band members, and a lot of forgotten good times, but it's worth it if you're doing what you love'."

KUTX 98.9 Austin Music Minute


Love Is Contagious

"Who: Check it. There’s a bounty of country-psych awesomeness from this Austin band that cites Graham Parsons, The Magnetic Fields and Walt Whitman as influences. The Lonesome Heroes release Can’t Stand Still revels in that groovy cosmic American indie-pop vibe, speckled with dusky shades of golden FM road trip sounds."

The Lonesome Heroes: “Long Time Coming”

"Can’t Stand Still is the name of the Lonesome Heroes’ second album, but it’s also the state-of-mind for frontman Rich Russell. Russell formed the band with Landry McMeans in Austin seven years ago, and the duo traveled around the country in an old trailer that perfectly captured their old-fashioned aesthetic. McMeans and Russell parted ways in 2013, but Russell soon reformed the Lonesome Heroes as a full band. Recorded at Public Hi-Fi here in Austin, Can’t Stand Still is more sprawling and bittersweet than the golden sounds on the Heroes’ debut. “Long Time Coming” recounts the past few years with more than a hint of sadness, matched note-for-note by the band’s wistful country touches."

Folk Radio UK Premiers "Future Ghost Town"



Premiere: The Lonesome Heroes – Future Ghost Town (Song of the Day)

"We have a top premiere today from Austin, TX psych-country/Americana band The Lonesome Heroes with their newest single Future Ghost Town taken from their forthcoming sophomore full-length Can’t Stand Still.

The band underwent major changes in 2014 when they reformed from dobro/acoustic guitar duo to a an expanded 4-piece incorporating electric guitar, bass and drums. Needless to say, those changes transform their sound as you can hear on Future Ghost Town. Pedal steel, vibraphone, horns and organ also feature on the album, a sure sign that a new musical chemistry is at play. It all makes for a compelling listen that left me wanting more, but fear not, Can’t Stand Still is set for release on CD and digital formats on January 27th, with a vinyl release on Whatbang Records scheduled for February 27th."

"Combining elements of indie rock, folk, and country into highway revelry, The Lonesome Heroes hail from Austin, Texas with a Cosmic American musical style that unites decades, sounds, and regions. Austin's KUT 90.5 FM describe them as, "Western Americana, a cross-pollination of rock, folk, and country with psych and indie pop – influences from Texas and Brooklyn backgrounds. It’s the soundscape that occurs when indie rock and country artfully cross paths."
