Feeling a bit camera shy


From the heart of Texas, the BURDEN BROTHERS are a big sounding, hard-hitting band that are have been making an impact on the radio and on the road since the release of their debut cd, Buried in Your Black Heart in 2004. Buried featured the hit singles "Beautiful Night" and "Shadow" while the band shared the stage with the likes of Velvet Revolver, Papa Roach, and Finger 11. The Burden Brothers latest effort, Mercy, will be in stores on Oct 31.

Formed by Toadies vocalist, Vaden Todd Lewis and acclaimed drummer Taz Bentley (Reverend Horton Heat, Tenderloin, Izzy Stradlin) the band was not thinking big when they first started. "We didn't even put a band together until after the first CD was recorded," says Bentley. The line up now includes Zack Busby (bass), Casey Hess (guitar) and Corey Rizzoni (guitar.)

The Burden Brothers have an admiration for the history of rock n roll combined with no fear to push decibels. Through their music's underlying darkness there is also beauty and optimism running through the tracks. With hard-edged rock, catchy heartfelt melodies and a serious low end, the BURDEN BROTHERS truly rock with an unequivocal instinct and cathartic ferocity! "This is the most fun I've had onstage ever," exclaims Lewis. "It's high energy. Interactive. Well dressed and incredibly sweaty," he laughs.

"The experience and chemistry of the five of us was crafted by our time in other bands, and a mutual love of beer and eyeliner," smiles Hess. "We are children of the seventies and I think it comes through in most of the tunes. We were brought up on arena rock," states Bentley, "and it just comes out of us naturally." We bring that to the stage every night, too," says Lewis. "We try to make every club, no matter the size, an arena!"
