Destination Blues by Butchers Blind

When you listen to the music of Butchers Blind you know the future of the Americana/Alternative-Country music scene shines blindingly bright. It's easy to hear the influences of Wilco, Gram Parsons and The Band in their music, but the real magic is how they blend these ingredients into a musical recipe all their own.  Their new CD, Destination Blues, today!

Now available on i-tunes

"The band takes what has worked and been engrained in American Roots music and puts their own refreshing twist on it." Red Line Roots 8/14/13.  

"Butcher’s Blind are an Americana band…who have no interest in cultivating any rootsy, Cowboy-ish image. The record “Destination Blues," their second full length, doesn’t do much to dress-up what they do: which is write great songs about regular people’s lives." Jersey Beat 8/13.

"[Destination Blues] proves they are a band that is evolving while creating and maintaining their very own identity in the alt-country world."- From Under the Basement (Best of 2011)

"[Destination Blues] follows a great American tradition: excellent songwriting, genuine musicianship and ballsy rock n’ roll and country songs about drinking and fucking up and pouring your heart out."- Jersey Beat

"The songs are tight, well written, and this is alt-country music at its finest. "- Red Line Roots

"Destination Blues follows in the footsteps of the alt-country greats. I have a feeling that, pretty soon, Butchers Blind will be able to count themselves on that list."- Adobe and Teardrops

"...strong melodies with intriguing themes...disciplined and focused songwriting, and that bodes well for this promising band." - Sun209
