Budos Band: Album and Tour


View read count

The Budos Band
On August 10, 2010, Daptone Records will release The Budos Band III, unleashing The Budos Band's brazen sound and inspiring fervor among music lovers throughout the world. Produced by Bosco Mann and TNT at Daptone Records' “House of Soul Studios" in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the band's third full-length studio effort was conceived during weekly, beer-fueled Staten Island writing sessions—as well as more than 150 live gigs over the last two years - and recorded during a 48 hour period in January 2010.

The first single from The Budos Band III is the afro-rock burner, “Unbroken, Unshaven." Download the free Mp3 here.

The Budos Band has confirmed a national tour in support of the new album, beginning in June and running through September 2010. Covering the U. S. and Canada, the band is performing in intimate night clubs to high profile festivals including Celebrate Brooklyn! in Prospect Park, Bumbershoot, Millennium Park in Chicago, Outside Lands in San Francisco, and multiple jazz festivals in Canada.
