02. Bad Day
03. Sex On A Grave
There are some bands you can assume we’ve all formed a definitive, adult-lifespan opinion about by the age of 21. Nirvana, The Beatles, Black Sabbath. Imagine guitarist Stephen K. Phillips’ surprise, dismay and…joy? when he realized he was hitting Romana with Sabbath for the first time in her thirties. And that’s how Bandshee whiplashed from a folk rock project to a stoner/doom/alt machine. Add in a fresh re-discovery of Chris Cornell’s songwriting, passion for all things Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Pentagram and Witchcraft, and you get Bandshee. Oh yeah, and “the bass player loves Tool.” Haha.

Bandshee is based out of Louisville, KY, but plays regularly in Cincinnati, OH and Lexington, KY. We’ve toured through Ohio and Pennsylvania and recently extended our tendrils into Wisconsin for the Ride of the Living Dead.
While we’ve never been bestowed any official accolades, we have been awarded some righteous post show bud, and that makes us feel accomplished as a stoner rock band.
