With their professional liveson hold during the pandemic, The Band of Heathens found a year-long creativeworkaround. Every Tuesday night, the five-piece group came together via Zoomfrom their respective homes – from L.A. to Asheville - to host the Good TimeSupper Club, a ninety-minute variety program.

“It was nice to be able touse music as a connective thread and something that's healing,” saysguitarist-vocalist Ed Jurdi. “We were doing it for ourselves, but the greatestbenefit was how it created this community for us to hang out with our fans.”

Guitarist-vocalist and fellowfounding member Gordy Quist agrees. “The show was like a release, where we allconnected and forgot about the stuff going on around us. At some point, wedecided to bring in guests for an interview, and that turned into 'Hey, let'spre-record a music video of a cover song with each of them. '”

That segment of the show,called Remote Transmissions, became a much-anticipated fan favorite each week.And it is now the title of their latest album, featuring covers of ten classicsongs with guest vocals by the likes of Margo Price, Ray Wylie Hubbard andCharlie Starr.

It's just the latestinnovative move for The Band Of Heathens, who over the last fifteen years havereleased nine acclaimed albums of roots rock originals, played festivals likeBonnaroo and South by Southwest, and toured the world many times over (RollingStone calls them “a smoking live band”), all while remaining that rarest ofbirds – a truly independent group.
