Houndmouth Biography & News
This band's really gone to the dogs (Created August 9, 2013)
Meet Houndmouth, the name derived from a neighbor's barking dog.
This four-piece band featuring Katie Toupin, Matt Myers, Zak Appleby, and Shane Cody were having a late night recording session in hopes of eliminating the neighborhood's ambient sounds. Instead, sirens and car horns were replaced by dogs barking in the background. It was Shane who ultimately suggested the recordings needed to be scrapped because they "contained too much houndmouth." Just like that, the band was christened.
Formed in late 2011 in Southern Indiana, Houndmouth had just a four-song EP before releasing their first full-length album in 2013. Of course "From The Hills Below The City" showcases their folk-rock/American-y sound that also hits the very raw and real threshold the band strives to reach. From Katie's vocals on "Houston Train" to the country-gospel harmonies on "Krampus," the band is well on its way to becoming an established household name.
Houndmouth recently toured the globe with the likes of Grace Potter, Alabama Shakes, Drive-By Truckers and more. They also made their national television debut on "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" and have confirmed a 30-date headlining U.S. fall tour, including dates with Jason Isbell and Court Yard Hounds. The trek includes two-night stands in New York City (November 15-16) and Chicago (November 22-23, as well as performances at Austin City Limits, the Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, the Americana Music Festival, and more.
The awesome thing about Houndmouth? They all sing, whether its lead or harmony, and each of them take turns as frontman or woman. The cohesion of a youthful, excited group on stage has swelled crowds that will only continue to grow with this ambitious group of twentysomethings. You can take that to the bank, straight from the Houndmouth.
