KYO / 065 - ANCIENT WARFARE

This week, we’re excited to be talking about Ancient Warfare!  In 2009, Echo Wilcox and Neva Geoffrey (both Kentuckians) happened to both be in Savannah, GA at the same time and decided to start a band together.  Neva moved to Los Angeles to pursue sound design while Echo moved back to Lexington and reformed the core of Ancient Warfare with locals like Emily Hagihara (Chico Fellini), Rachel Yarnarella (Candy) and Reva Williams (Italian Beaches, Small Batch).  Their sound is like a storm blowing in at the edge of town, all foreboding shadows and thunder.  They mix bits of 60s folk and psychedelic groups with the edge of PJ Harvey and the narcotic blues of Mazzy Star with a dash of gothy gloom.  Their debut album (“The Pale Horse”) will be dropping this fall but, until then, keep an eye out because they’re going to be playing at Motr Pub (in Cincy) on May 17thand at Al’s Block Party on May 24th.  Later on in June/July, they’re going on a small midwest/south tour with Bear Medicine.  The biggest news though is that they’re going to be playing TONIGHT at Willie’s with Bear Medicine and Shivering Timbers!!!
