Will Hoge w/ The Band of Heathens at the Harvester Performance Center
450 Franklin Street
Rocky Mount, Virginia 24151
His most recent, Anchors, came out last August, reaching No. 6 on Billboard Heatseekers and the Top 20 on the Indie chart. But there was something he couldn’t stop thinking about: his children.
Border police. Political corruption. Anti-intellectualism. Poverty. Gun control. A broken education system. Each of these things weighed on Hoge, and he confronts them all head-on in My American Dream, which will come with a copy of the U.S. Constitution printed with the lyrics in both the LP and CD.
“Those things kept me up at night — and this record was less expensive than therapy,” he says, laughing. “Silence couldn’t be a part of my deal anymore.” and Hoge dealt with his fears the only way he knows how, by making music. The result is the fiercest, angriest, and most heartfelt collection of songs he’s released.
Band of Heathens
While traveling in New England in 2017, and conversations drifting toward the troubled social climate in the country. Everyone shared a sadness that bordered on despair of unsettling news of corruption, social injustice, and an overall lack of moral decency.
Going forward, our hope is to infuse in these recordings — a spirit of brotherhood, hope and understanding, liberty, and justice for all.
