Heartless Bastards have released a hilarious new video for the song “Hi-Line” from their just-released album Restless Ones. The video was directed by Frank Weysos and stars Bushwick Bill who plays the band’s agent taking calls from people looking for country, rock and hip hop acts, telling each of them that he has JUST the band they’re looking for, and the clip rolls out showing them having a great time dressing up as gangstas, a death metal band, and a classic country act.

Restless Ones came out June 16. It is the band’s fifth album and was produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Angel Olsen, Swans). Restless Ones was tracked in August 2014 during a 10-day session at El Paso, TX’s renowned Sonic Ranch. Located on 2,300 acres of pecan orchards bordering the Rio Grande and Mexico, the studio – the largest residential recording complex in the world – provided the perfect setting, miles away from all real world responsibilities and thus able to fully invest themselves in the act of creation.

Heartless Bastards are currently on a summer tour with support from Craig Finn (of The Hold Steady). The tour kicked off on June 10 at the Thirsty Hippo in Hattiesburg, MS and takes them across the east coast and Midwest before ending on July 2 at Trees in Dallas, TX. A September tour with Alberta Cross opening has also been confirmed, as have October dates with Slothrust.

All tour and festival dates are listed below and can be found on their interactive website experience RestlessOnes.net. Their fans will also be able to share photos, videos and check out new music directly from the band.

Rolling Stone has premiered the new music video for Heartless Bastards single, “Marathon,” off their widely acclaimed 2012 record, Arrow (Partisan Records).  With Halloween rapidly approaching, the video finds the band indulging in the holiday spirit, with an homage to The Wizard Of Oz.  In lieu of a twister or hot air balloon, the costumed Bastards travel by vintage AMC Pacer, racing to find their way home (Austin, not Dayton sadly).  The song builds slowly to a grand crescendo, with Erika Wennerstrom’s potent, pleading vocals as the scorching centerpiece.
