"Your favorite punk band's favorite country band" the Vandoliers have shared the second single off their upcoming album The Vandoliers, following "Before the Fall," which we just included on our list of 26 country songs you need to know from 2022 so far. The new song's called "Howlin'," and its fiddle/harmonica motif almost has a Celtic punk vibe that's not too far removed from Vandoliers' recent tourmates Flogging Molly.
"In 2019, I wrote ‘Howlin’’ while my family dog cried by the door waiting for my mom and dad to come home," frontman Joshua Fleming said via press release. "It took no time at all before I had a complete song of lyrics depicting the pain of loss and a friend long gone. I love this song in its innocence, and the simplicity of ‘I miss you.’" Listen and watch the Andree Brown-directed video below. The album drops 8/12 via Amerikinda Records/Soundly Music.
