Described alternately as “Hee-Haw on mescaline” and “CBGB-meets-Grand Ole Opry,” The Defibulators are a New York City country band. First-and-foremost a live band, they've quickly earned a devoted following in a city not known for its love of country music. No Depression cited their new album, "Debt'll Get 'Em," as “a blistering, let’s-get-down-to-the-truth, eclectic mix of musical styles that push and stretch the boundaries of country music by blending genre-bending guitars, fiddles, and banjo with the often haunting vocals of Erin Bru and the won’t-let-you-stop-thinking lyrics of Bug Jennings," who only discovered classic country music after moving from Texas to New York. "I'm sure if I stayed in Texas, I would not be in a country band right now. There's something about the fast-paced, frantic, neurotic energy of New York that forged our style," he says. Come hear the music calls "sinister, squawking urban honky-tonk and rockabilly served hot and dirty."
