Tribes is a band that's ready to rock its way across the US with multiple dates at SXSW and more afterward. With melodic guitar riffs and a sound like some favorites from the '90s, their time seems to be now. Johnny Lloyd's voice is intense and infectious, often at the same time, and the entire band is right there with him, throwing out amazing anthem rock that makes them sound arena-ready even at this early stage in the game. They’re already huge overseas and with their first album, Baby, hitting the US next week (out March 13th), they’re more than ready to mount the invasion on this side of the Atlantic.
