Holy White Hounds Premiere "Blind"
Band on tour now!
(New York, NY) – Des Moines’ best new alternative rock band, Holy White Hounds, has partnered with streaming giant Vevo to premiere the lyric video for their standout new single “Blind,” from their debut album Sparkle Sparke. Click HERE to watch! “Blind” will impact at Alternative radio on August 23, hot on the heels of their breakthrough hit “Switchblade,” which is currently #10 on the rock charts. “Blind” will be available for streaming and purchase via all digital service providers.
“‘Blind’ is the story of the coolest chick I’ve ever met. She appeared to have lost her mind in the eyes of everybody else, but she always knew who she was. This song captures that tale, over two chords, for 3 minutes,” says frontman Brenton Dean
The Hounds are currently on a summer headline tour in support of Sparkle Sparkle, released this spring via Razor & Tie. The band recently popped their festival cherries with debut performances at Bonnaroo, Bunbury, PromoWest Fest, Edgefest, Pointfest, and 80/35 Festival; as well as a presenting slot in the Alternative Press Music Awards show last month. Gigs at Riot Fests in both Chicago and Denver are on deck, with local headline shows in between and a major fall tour announcement coming next month. Click on the TOUR section for more.

The press is raving about Sparkle Sparkle:

“Be sure to keep an eye out for Holy White Hounds – with this amount of talent, they've got good things coming to them.” – Pure Grain Audio
“Their debut album, Sparkle Sparkle, coolly conjures The Strokes, Beck, Nirvana, Queens of The Stone Age and The Pixies” – Blog Talk Radio
“Sparkle Sparkle is an album that demonstrates a great confidence from Holy White Hounds, a confidence that is all the more surprising given that this is a debut.” – Renowned For Sound
“While still being versatile with their music, this quartet has a knack for keeping their songs true to their Grunge style. While showcasing a wide range of talents and superb, bangin’ tunes, it is going to be hard to top their new music.” – Cryptic Rock
“Sparkle Sparkle is the perfect addition to any indie rock fan’s collection – it doesn’t hide its influences, but it’s also unafraid of making a statement all by itself, standing tall among today’s giants.” – New Noise Magazine
“At times the band resembles an exact fusion of where Nirvana and Beck were at, respectively, in late ‘93/early ’94; on other occasions, they resemble a stoner rock ensemble with a keen understanding of why glam rock rules so fucking hard.” – Philthy Mag
