"The Tower of Dudes, opening for Immaculate Machine (Prague)"

THE TOWER OF DUDES is a country-folk-punk project in Prague with the members who are foreigners from Canada, UK, and USA settled in Prague. Try to imagine an after midnight acoustic jam of Wolf Parade with members from 16 Horsepower and Neutral Milk Hotel from the old day - you get the idea. - A.M. 180 Collective

"The Tower of Dudes"

"Jonathan Richman mixed with minimal duo Art Rock and an accordion. Take The Jonathan Richman and take out the Velvet Underground and insert a squeeze box." - In My Room - Podcast

"Band of the Week: The Tower of Dudes"

"Hailing from the Czech Republic, The Tower of Dudes are a horribly named, wonderfully adept indie rock band that mix elements of folk, country, punk, and indie rock into one powerfully charged sound....The Tower of Dudes just nail it in every way." - Pop Tarts Suck Toasted

"The Tower of Dudes"

"This is a band that has written FUN in large letters all over their songs. Recommended if you like bands like DeVothcKa and the Whisky Priests. Fire up the accordion and let it rip." - Here Comes The Warm Flood

"The Opening Acts - The Tower of Dudes"

"If you're in a bad mood, [The Tower of Dudes] album will lift your spirits. Trust me - I just got back from a brutal dentist appointment, and their album has helped me to forget the agony I had to endure (it was my first visit in 10 years). I really hope they use that last sentence as a blurb for future press releases." - The Opening Acts - Music Blog

"Let's Polka - The Tower of Dudes"

"...[The Tower of Dudes] is a combination of high-energy punk and country twang. Toting an eclectic array of instruments - accordion, banjo, mandolin, melodica, glockenspiel - they remind of me of a slightly tamer, but no less interesting, version of Gogol Bordello" - Let's Polka - Music Blog

The Tower of Dudes is a high-octane, traveling folk-country-punk band that employs an impressive variety of instruments. With the release of their second album, “Earl” The Tower of Dudes continue to deliver exciting, punchy sing-a-longs that are guaranteed to get you out of your seat and into your drink.

While The Tower of Dudes have been mentioned in the same breath as 16 horsepower, Neutral Milk Hotel, Gogol Bordello, Devotchka and Wolf Parade, spirited audiences generally consider them to be in a league of their own.
