Ha Ha Tonka is an unmistakable indie-meets-Southern rock band comprised of Brett Anderson, Lennon Bone, Lucas Long and Brian Roberts. Sitting at the crossroads of Americana and indie- where Alabama meets Arcade Fire- the quartet recently released their highly anticipated fourth full-length album, Lessons, via Bloodshot Records.
The album was recorded at Bright Eyes’ ARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska and in NYC with producers Dan Molad (Lucius) and The Ryantist. With a sound described as“southern rock meets The Cure” by My Old Kentucky Blog, the band today unveils their captivating live video for album title track, “Lessons.” In celebration of the video & tour, eMusic is also offering special pricing for members on the Lessons album today through Thursday.
Ha Ha Tonka has become renowned for its authentic, effortless brand of indie-Americana, seamlessly fusing the traditional with modern, contemporary elements. Their track, “Usual Suspects,” was featured in the latest episode of CBS hit series,Criminal Minds.
Having played alongside the likes of Old 97s, Murder By Death, Someone Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin & more, Ha Ha Tonka are currently on the road on a full North American tour in support of the new record. Be sure to catch them live!
