Wheeler Brothers Premiere Hilarious New Video for "Spent Time"

Indie-Americana five-piece, Wheeler Brothers, are kicking off the New Year with a brand new video for their single, "Spent Time".

The video centers around a Huckleberry Finn-esque protagonist and takes place during a stick-'em-up heist with his beautiful sidekick. Keep an eye out for the ever-present, ever-hilarious mariachi band that follows the duo on their quest.

The video premiered at AOL Spinner – check it out below, here on BandWeblogs.com!

"Spent Time" is off the Wheeler Brothers debut album, Portraits (Bismeaux Records), which dropped this summer and features sing along, guitar driven jams with clear, crisp vocals and plenty of down-home Southern twang.

The Wheeler Brothers will be kicking off a West coast run of tour dates this month beginning on January 6th in Colorado and hitting Phoenix, LA, Portland and Dallas along the way.

They will also be performing at SXSW this year - watch this space for details of their shows! Full announced tour routing is below.

Formed in Austin, TX, the Wheeler Brothers are made up of brothers Nolan (guitar/piano/vocals), Tyler (bass) and Patrick Wheeler (drums) along with Danny Matthews (guitar/vocals), and A.J. Molyneaux (lap steel/guitar/vocals).

They have quickly emerged as one of Austin's most exciting up-and-coming bands whose style is described as "ball-of-fire Americana" by the Austin Chronicle.

"…mixing country rock guitars with warm, rootsy vocals. Portraits stakes out ground somewhere in the vast space between Band of Horses and the Avett Brothers." - Austin American Statesman

"Through 11 fiery roots-influenced cuts, the Brothers bare their songwriting chops with an addictive sense of bravado and cerebral storytelling... Seemingly a bottomless pit of musical vision, Portraits is a debut that shows this band's melodic wellspring already bubbling over." - Elmore Magazine

"…ball-of-fire Americana and fueled by expansive musical backgrounds…" - Austin Chronicle

"Wheeler Brothers are a rough-and-tumble tribe from Austin, Texas… they chug their guitars with the gusto of a locomotive…" - AOL Spinner

"Rooted in the many shades of Americana, the Austin-based quintet isn't afraid of borrowing from the past and joins an increasing number of groups such as the Head and the Heart and Fleet Foxes in carving a new sound into indie's vast sonic landscape." - Washington Post
