Billed as “twang with attitude,” the Seattle-based band’s sound is a mix of ethereal alt-country by way of Bakersfield with some Texas honky-tonk, Memphis soul and Western Swing thrown in for good measure. And they rock, too.

The four-piece group formed five years ago and his been touring relentlessly for the last year and a half, building a nationwide fan base after spending years toiling in the clubs of Seattle.

Home, Ruby Dee and The Snakehandlers’ fourth full-length, drops June 24. The tour kicked off with a hometown show at the Tractor Tavern May 27, but really gets rolling with three nights with the Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash July 11-13 in Seattle, Bellingham, Wash., and Portland. The band goes it alone for a few more Northwest gigs in July before launching August 28 in Eagle, Idaho.

The tour heads east to Nashville, Austin and San Antonio before swinging back to the West Coast for dates in Los Angeles, Santa Cruz and Sacramento before winding down at The Knockout in San Francisco October 11.
