Discover The Undiscovered: Herbert Bail

 

We’re excited to introduce our featured band of the month: Herbert Bail. The LA-based band, creates musical narratives that are epic tales. Taking the listener on a journey through the dark heart of the American West, emerging with a silver lining of hope and optimism. With members hailing from all over different parts of the US - Herbert Bail acts as a collective identity for a band of schemers and dreamers. Herbert Bail’s first self-titled EP was released in November of 2011, and their first full length album 'The Future's in the Past' released December, 21 2012. In the end, Herbert Bail tells a story. There are no single truths, and we all lead many lives.

While the cause of the Superdome Super Bowl Super power outage is still unclear, the world has already kind of declared half time performer Beyonce as the source of all things light and good in the world. Her unbelievable show featured classic Bey songs like "Crazy In Love" and "Halo," but also brought back one of the best trios of the '90s: Destiny's Child. We love looking at these great snapshots from yesterday's big game from Mrs. Carter's perspective thanks to her Instagram (@baddiebey).
