“Band to watch.” – The New York Times
 
“Bands You Need to Hear.” – Esquire Magazine
 
“One of rock’s most thrilling young bands.” – Artist Direct
 
“The stormy song is a dark anthem that would definitely perk up the ears of AWOLNATION or X Ambassadors fans.” – Baeble

 

“It’s the type of song that could fit in just as easily at an underground club as it would on mainstream Top 40 radio, and we can’t get enough.” – Substream

 

“Their latest record, Danger to Myself, champions their signature hooky, energetic sound – think Imagine Dragons’ dynamic instrumentation meets Panic! At the Disco’s powerful vocal delivery.” – Bandsintown

The band also recently performed the song with The Dirty Heads on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, PRESS HERE to watch.Flaunting outsider panache and theatrical hooks as oversized as their home state of Texas, these outliers formed at a high school party before going on to release three EPs and log countless miles on the road alongside everyone from Sublime With Rome, The Offspring, the Dirty Headsand Fall Out Boy. In true Rockstar fashion, lead singer Kyle Morris continued to perform the band’s high energy set all while wearing a peg-leg crutch for his then-broken foot on their recent tour dates.

Most recently, 2017’s Bed of Liars spawned “Your Love Could Start A War,” which clocked over 5 million Spotify streams and charted in the top 40 at Alternative Radio. Along the way, the boys have earned acclaim from the likes of The New York TimesAXS, Esquire, and more. The quintet-Kyle Morris (vocals), Brent Carney (lead guitar), Cole Male (guitar), Jared Hornbeek (bass) and Kevin Goddard (drums)-kicked off 2018 by releasing a Deluxe Edition of their Danger To Myself EP which features the rising single “Oh My Dear Lord.” With “Oh My Dear Lord’s” early success indicators, this is just the beginning for The Unlikely Candidates.
