Des Moines’ best new alternative rock band, Holy White Hounds, has partnered with streaming giant Vevo to premiere the lyric video for their standout new single “Blind,” from their debut album Sparkle Sparke. Click HERE to watch! “Blind” will impact at Alternative radio on August 23, hot on the heels of their breakthrough hit “Switchblade,” which is currently #10 on the rock charts. “Blind” will be available for streaming and purchase via all digital service providers. 

“‘Blind’ is the story of coolest chick I’ve ever met. She appeared to have lost her mind in the eyes of everybody else, but she always knew who she was. This song captures that tale, over two chords, for 3 minutes,” says frontman Brenton Dean. 

The Hounds are currently on a summer headline tour in support of Sparkle Sparkle, produced by Brandon Darner (Imagine Dragons, Radio Moscow, Envy Corps) and released this spring via Razor & Tie. The band recently popped their festival cherries with debut performances at Bonnaroo, Bunbury, PromoWest Fest, Edgefest, Pointfest, and 80/35 Festival; as well as a presenting slot in the Alternative Press Music Awards show last month.  Gigs at Riot Fests in both Chicago and Denver are on deck, with local headline shows in between.
