Band of Horses has survived a tumultuous history. Of the four original members, only frontman Ben Bridwell remains. In 2005 the band got its first real break opening for Iron & Wine, catching the ear of the celebrated indie label Sub Pop. Under Sub Pop, Band of Horses was able to release Everything All the Time in 2006 to a large audience. Renowned as soulful rockers with a touch of country, they have garnered a faithful following and numerous awards. Band of Horses subsequently signed with Columbia Records, which is putting out the group's fourth album, Mirage Rock, in September. Hear their archived performance from the World Cafe Live stage in Philadelphia.
