Austin quintet The Band of Heathens have announced their new album Duende. The group describes how the inspiration for the song "came about from reading A History of the World in 6 Glasses by Tom Standage, after a strange night out we had in a bar after a show. Some guy who was blacked-out drunk ended up pulling a knife and coming after us. Fortunately everybody made it out alive, and a seed was planted for the classic character who can't escape the call of the bars."
