Band of Horses: For over a year now, indie rock band Band of Horses has been experiencing huge popularity thanks to three hit albums and popular tour dates. Led by the haunting vocals and emotional songwriting of guitarist Ben Bridwell, Band of Horses is putting their unique spin on indie music marked by subtle synth and keyboards. Band of Horses' latest album, Infinite Arms, has continued the band's rise to fame and sparked numerous tour dates in 2011; including those in support of Kings of Leon this summer.

Band of Horses grew out of a previous band, Carissa's Weird, which featured Ben Bridwell, Matt Brooke, and Sera Cahoone. While all of these musicians would perform on Band of Horses' debut album, Everything All the Time, on Bridwell would remain and the band has featured a revolving lineup since. The album featured the breakout single, "Funeral", which was played regularly on television and movies. Following headlining European and US tour dates, Band of Horses' second album, Cease to Begin, fared even better by becoming nearly universally acclaimed.

2010's Infinite Arms has received similar acclaim and was even nominated for a Best Alternative Album Grammy. The success of the album has led to My Morning Jacket inviting Band of Horses to open for them on 2011 tour dates beginning July 26. After My Morning Jacket's concert schedule ends on September 12, Band of Horses will play several tour dates in Australia beginning November 4. Band of Horses' tour dates in 2011 end on November 19, so buy your tickets on Eventful now to avoid missing out.
