Bluegrass group Horseshoes & Hand Grenades debut a video of a live performance of their new album’s title track, “The Ode.”
Known for their breakneck good ol’ banjo-pickin’ bluegrass burners, Horseshoes & Hand Grenades have been drawing crowds since the five musicians met in college in Wisconsin, pooled their talent, and went on the road as a band after graduating in 2013.
Countless sold-out shows later, they’ve just released a fourth album, The Ode.
The harmonica- and violin-driven title track doesn’t miss a beat in terms of entertainment and showcases the band’s lively nature with a swift melody worth visiting the dance floor for.
“Finally releasing ‘The Ode’ to our fans and friends was a wildly exciting endeavor. We’re lucky to have such enthusiastic fans and their energy really fueled our fire in the studio,” says lead singer Adam Greuel.
Besides Greuel, who plays guitar and dobro, the quintet consists of David C. Lynch on accordion, spoons, harmonica, and vocals; Russell Pedersen on banjo, fiddle, and vocals; Collin Mettelka on fiddle, mandolin, and vocals; and Samual Odin on bass.
Check out this exclusive first look at their boisterous live performance of “The Ode” below.
