Last we heard from Detroit garage rockers The Von Bondies, they were getting ready to tour in support of what would turn out to be their final album, 2009s Love, Hate, and Then Theres You. Following their breakup last year, frontman Jason Stollsteimer started a new band, The Hounds Below. After touring in support of The Heavy and The Airborne Toxic Event in 2011, Stollsteimer and co. immediately got to work on their first full-length.
For a taste of their as-yet-untitled debut, check out single For You And I below. With a healthy dose of post-rock guitars, handclaps, and anthemic choruses, the track echoes arena glam bands like The Killers and Kings of Leon.
After you take a listen, peep The Hounds Belows upcoming Midwest tour dates, which includes a stop at South by Southwest. As always, stay tuned for more info on their forthcoming LP and details on a scheduled European tour in May.
