Dallas, United States (2007 – present)

Up from the warm, almost oppressively humid Texas air rises a din. The sound is created by only three people. For now, we’ll just call them D.H., Nikki and Slim. The music that they are creating might be the aural equivalent of walking down a farm-to-market road on a foggy morning just before day breaks.

The clamor began in November 2007 when these three humans came together to form True Widow. As is to be expected, they set about committing this alchemy to tape and from this arose their self-titled debut in November 2008. True Widow was recorded by the more-than-capable hands of Matt Pence at his Echo Lab studio. But then came time to spread the good word. So they headed out West and then out East, bringing their simultaneously breathless and heavy live set with them.

Guitarist Dan Phillips and bassist Nicole Estill trade off on lead vocals, sometimes harmonizing. Phillips previously served guitar and lead vocal duties in the more indie rock-oriented Dallas band Slowride. True Widow’s self-titled debut album was released in 2008 on the small Texas label End Sounds. They toured the U.S. in spring 2011 opening for Surfer Blood and …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, and in fall 2011 opening for Boris and Asobi Seksu. In May 2012 they toured with Kurt Vile. True Widow’s third album is scheduled for release in late spring 2013 on Relapse Records, which signed the band in January 2013. It is being recorded at the Echo Lab studio in Argyle, TX with producer Matt Pence, who produced their sophomore album.
