Band of Horses will play The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Monday, September 27. Infinite Arms, Band of Horses' third full length LP and first for Brown/Fat Possum/Columbia, sold over 45,000 records in the week following its release, debuting at #7 on the U.S. album chart. Infinite Arms also debuted #2 in Norway, top 10 in Canada, top 20 in Australia and New Zealand, making an impressive international showing overall.
The band's career chart high to date comes in the wake of a North American tour supporting Pearl Jam, during which BOH's Ben Bridwell joined the headliners for multiple encores of "All Along The Watchtower" as well as a climactic and rarely played version of Temple of the Dog's "Hunger Strike" at Madison Square Garden. Band of Horses has been anything but inactive since wrapping those dates, appearing May 27 on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, days after sneaking in a stripped down acoustic set at the Masonic Lodge at L.A.'s Hollywood Forever cemetery. The band has also knocked out electric sets from the Roxy to Toronto's Horseshoe Tavern, and filmed a video for the single "Laredo" with Mark Pellington in Pioneertown CA--where they fit in an impromptu May 23 set at Pappy & Harriet's.
Additionally, Band of Horses contributed "Life On Earth" to the upcoming Twilight Saga: Eclipse soundtrack, and will be adding a leg of July dates to a globe-spanning 2010 tour that will include some of its biggest headlining shows to date from New York's Williamsburg Waterfront to the Greek Theaters of Los Angeles and Berkeley.
