War Daddies

Strange southern roots shine through a variety of guitar driven alt-indie rock influences. Lyrically personal back roads are taken to find genuinely inspired destinations.
If there is a theme, it's that a life of travel takes it's toll on relationship.

War Daddies are a working class 4 man rock band from Austin Texas. Their original music is made for drinking in bars, staying up late, road trips high speed chases and wrestling bears. War Daddies are Mutants. Their ethos is DIY/pUnk. The sound is electric, dirty, driven, and stuffed with hooks. The lyrics are narrative postcards on love, conflict, youth and the road. The music follows a simple formula - 3 chords and the Truth. Dont bore us - Get to the Chorus! War Daddies music emerges from equal parts Wilco, Tom Petty, Lucero, AC/DC, Tragically Hip, Spoon, Driving n Cryin and The Kinks.

Reviews, Fans and fellow Musicians have described them - without any trace of irony - as 'Southern Alternative Indie Rock. Prolific writing where every song is a "Fan Fav" and bombastic "one of a kind" shows continue to convert dedicated followers by the roomful.

War Daddies

Recorded at WDHQ by Night Owl and and Mixed at Wire Recording

Was originally written when I started travelling for my "day job". Was a sparse acoustic song. The Johns played it. But the War Daddies have been "killing it" since 2009. Its come to mean alot more than it did then
