More About Boland
The band made an entrance into the music scene that was hard to miss. Since debuting in 1999 with “Pearl Snaps,” the band has matured without taming their refreshing irreverence.
The album features songs that won the hearts of fans across the country, including “Somewhere Down in Texas,” “Proud Souls,” “Telephone Romeo” and “If I Ever Get Back to Oklahoma.”
The band’s 2015 album, “Squelch,” debuted on the Top Country Albums chart at No. 11, selling 4,200 the first week.
Their most recent record, “Hard Times Are Relative,” was released in mid-2018 and stacks the smart, road-ready outlaw country longtime fans have come to expect, alongside the creative risks that flirt with punk and psychedelic sounds.
