More than 10 years have passed since the core members first played together at an Austin nightclub, which led to the creation of The Band Of Heathens. Their fifth studio-created album, Duende, deftly mixes genres and highlights the outfit's latest evolution.

Notably Texan caught up with one of the group's singers and primary songwriters, Ed Jurdi, who spoke about the new record, their longevity, future plans, and BOH's salute to Adam Carroll.

To find the latest info and tour dates, visit The Band Of Heathens website. Listen to Notably Texan weekdays from 11am to 2pm on KETR.
