Ancient Cities

Ancient Cities

 Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

North Carolina natives, Ancient Cities bridges the gap between indie-rock and classic rock with swift, fuzzy guitars, excited drumming and dreamy atmospheres.


Hailing from North Carolina, Ancient Cities melds rock n roll with hints of pop and psychedelia. Formed in 2013 by my multi-instrumentalist Stephen Warwick, Ancient Cities has independently released two albums, with both getting released on vinyl via Refresh Records. Songs from those albums have been featured on Showtime’s Shameless and ABC’s Imaginary Mary. In 2015, Ancient Cities was chosen by Converse to play the Rubbertracks stage at Newport Folk festival, which landed them an appearance in Vanity Fair. They’ve played up and down the east coast sharing the stage with acts such as Deer Tick, Houndmouth, Dr. Dog, Walk the Moon, The Naked and Famous, Strand of Oaks, and Spaceface; and done live video sessions with PASTE magazine and Live & Breathing. In 2017, Ancient Cities collaborated with Seratones on a cover of Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More" with all the proceeds going to Levine Children's Hospital in their home town of Charlotte. Most recently they just finished recording album number three with plans to release it sometime in early 2019.
