Communion Presents are very pleased that The Lone Bellow will return to the UK for a very special headline show at The Borderline on 11th March 2014.
Brooklyn three-piece The Lone Bellow will release their debut UK EP ‘The One You Should’ve Let Go’ on December 9th through Descendant Records / Sony Music. Born in Brooklyn, New York, with deep family and musical roots in Georgia, the fast-rising acoustic trio The Lone Bellow is proving, show by show, that the sounds and stories of Main Street resonate on Main Streets everywhere, winning fans across America and now around the world with their particular brand of ‘Brooklyn country’.
Led by Zach Williams, the Lone Bellow’s lead singer and principal songwriter, the band begun with what was meant to be just a jam session with Williams’ old friend Brian Elmquist and fellow singer Kanene Pipkin at a Brooklyn diner. Williams recalls, “three songs in, I realized I should quit what I’m doing and just make music with these people.” The trio’s debut four-track EP is exuberant in its playing and welcoming in its attitude. Though the lyrics have a melancholic undercurrent, the rhythm tracks are more rave-ups than ruminations, with swelling three-part harmonies and rousing group choruses. ‘The One You Should’ve Let Go’ acts as the perfect introduction to The Lone Bellow in anticipation of their UK debut album release in spring 2014.
