Koe Wetzel’s Incredible Music Festival Returns This Fall
After he doubled the population of Lindale, Texas earlier this year with the first one, Koe Wetzel has announced his next Incredible Music Festival. On September 14th, Koe and the boys are heading to Panther Island Pavilion in Fort Worth -- and as billed this show promises to be nothing short of incredible.
In June, Koe surprised fans and released his highly anticipated followup to Noise Complaint. Without presales, major label help, or really any outside promotion, Harold Saul High see-sawed back and forth between No. 1 and No. 2 for most of release week. A giant accomplishment for the independent Texan.
One big question many fans had regarding the album, where did the title come from? Koe told us, "Since 'Noise Complaint' I've lost my best friend and my uncle. They were both huge fans and never got to see where we are today. So I made up a high school with their names in it. The album as a whole is a high school themed album."
Harold Saul High is Koe Wetzel being 100% Koe Wetzel but adding a new level of songwriting that proves that Koe belongs at the forefront of this scene. It’s southern rock and roll meets late ‘90s and early 2000s punk rock meets raw, hillbilly East Texas country music.
This album marries the authenticity of Koe’s live performances with an even better look into the mind and soul of the writer behind the pen, all at the same time appreciating the wit and heart of Koe in his nature as a fun-loving dude who loves to have a good time.
Everyone who complained about having to wait for a new album from Koe gets more than what they deserved and likely expected. Harold Saul High is going to be one of the few albums that defines this generation of Texas music.
Support acts for Koe Wetzel's Incredible Music Festival in Panther Island will be announced soon. Tickets are on sale now.
