The band is comprised of brothers Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar) and Bo Rinehart (guitar, vocals) with Seth Bolt (bass, vocals) and Josh Lovelace (keys, vocals). “Tour De Compadres 2016” supports their new album Hard Love, which drops July 15 via Atlantic Records. Pre-orders are accompanied by instant downloads of singles “Happiness” and “Money & Fame.”

“Up until now, I think we made people climb in through the window to really get into our band, but this record is about leaving the front door wide open. It’s very different and adventurous for us, but I can’t wait for the fans to hear it,” Bear Rinehart said.
