The Band of Heathens Premieres “Black Cat”, Based On An Epic Immigrant Story

When The Band of Heathens heard a very tall tale about a man who immigrated to New York in the early 1900s, they were so mesmerized by the imaginative story that they wrote a song about it near moments later and recorded it the very next day. And it would develop to be an even greater contender, fairing as an essential track on their upcoming album Stranger, due for release on September 25.

Train

She never compromises, loves babies and surprises
Wears hi-heels when she exercises
Ain’t that beautiful
Meet Virginia

Train, Meet Virginia

Train scrounges up $25,000 and self-produces their debut album, released on February 24, 1998. Three singles and over a million albums sold — I think you can call it a good investment.
