Gangstagrass to tour

 Today Gangstagrass, on the cusp of their February tour, announced additional tour dates for April. Born from the musical mind of Rench, who was reared on pure bluegrass and country at home while break dancing at his grade school yard, Gangstagrass mixes bluegrass and rap and have quite possibly forged an entirely new and modern genre of utterly American music.  Though the band name may not be readily known to some, many already know their sound as their song  “Long Hard Times To Come” is the theme song that opens every episode of the FX hit Justified and which was nominated in 2010 for an Emmy as the Best Theme Song.
But what can words on a page actually tell you about music? At the end of the day you have to listen to it and find out for yourself. All we can hope to do is share some back story and a little about what people are sayin’ – but don’t take our word for it:
