City Slang: The Hounds Below light up



The Hounds Below, fresh from awesome sets on the SXSW Metro Times Blowout Stage and opening for Ash at the Magic Stick, have put a song out to prepare for a summer UK tour.

Frontman Jason Stollsteimer’s previous band the Von Bondies made great strides across pond, landing respectable slots at festivals like Reading and Leeds. Now it’s time to repeat that feat.

The song “You Light Me Up in the Dark” has been made available on Soundcloud and you can hear it here.

Check it out, post a comment, and let’s wish the Hounds well.
