Name:  Futurebirds
Hometown: Athens, Georgia

Sounds Like: Laid-back country-rock with a psychedelic Southern vibe; perfect for a summer night in a hammock by the lake. The Georgian six-piece formed in 2008 building up a solid fan base with its high-energy tunes that use everything from banjos to mandolins to create its unique blend of backwoods punk rock.

Download: “Battle For Rome” A moody song with the perfect build-up to the depths of battle back down to a contemplative post-fight calm.

Futurebirds is currently on tour. Check dates to see them live in a city near you.
