In late 2011, Matt Myers, Zak Appleby and Shane Cody started playing music together in a historic home in New Albany, Indiana dubbed "The Green House." Its rooms were adorned with relics from times past, so it was no surprise that songs such as “Penitentiary” bounced off the walls. Nostalgic sounds from their first album seemed to serve as a welcome escape for listeners from the relentless demands of the digital age. But if you asked any one of the guys, they were 'just having fun.' Houndmouth signed with legendary indie label Rough Trade Records in 2012. “From The Hills Below The City” landed them on several world-famous platforms such as fellow lovable Hoosier, David Letterman's stage. When vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter Matt Myers first spoke with big-name producer Dave Cobb prior to working together on their sophomore LP “Little Neon Limelight”, the two laughingly agreed to “not make another fucking boring Americana record.” A natural sounding album captured in a familiar fashion came together, except this time with a #1 adult alternative radio single in “Sedona.” “I never once thought of us as an Americana band,” says drummer Shane Cody. “The four of us were just a rock band, but some of us had Southern accents,” he laughs. Cue “Golden Age”, the third album featuring some of the band’s most innovative and experimental songs yet.
Houndmouth finds themselves recording and also touring their upcoming untitled fourth album expected to release in 2020. From their humble start, genre-defining hits, and experimentation, Houndmouth has and continues to make their impact felt with their unique take on storytelling through music. # # # Houndmouth: Matt Myers (guitar & vocals) Zak Appleby (bass & vocals) Shane Cody (drums & vocals) Follow Houndmouth: Website: http://houndmouth.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Houndmouth/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/houndmouth Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/houndmouth/
