Band in the Storm
After a tumultuous early life filled with change, District Verdant has found its footing in the imaginary psychedelic western of their Alt-Indie Rock
Los Angeles based District Verdant was started in 2009 when Joe Edwards (Vocals/Guitar) was auditioning drummers to restart his old band, Lonely Joe Gets Shotgun, while also playing guitar in local indie band Go West Young Man. After his scheduled audition didn’t show, Aaron Wright (Drums), who had helped produce the first Go West Young Man album and was recording next door, filled in on drums and shortly after they decided to make it permanent.
They released the eponymous debut album District Verdant in 2011. They played sporadically through the next few years with different guitarists and bassists, and released the Past Tense EP with Edwards and Wright playing the instruments.
In 2014, Stuart Colman (guitar) joined for a Southwestern Tour and subsequently joined permanently to record Everything Louder Than Everything Else. During this time, Michael Largaespada took over bass duties for the following shows, which saw the band play more frequently around the greater LA area.
Dust Storms May Exist, the band second full length album, was released May 31st, 2019.
