Singer-guitarists Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist played The Altamont Theater back in August. This month, they return to Asheville with their full ensemble, The Band of Heathens. “In the course of their evolution from loose assemblage to world-class rock ’n’ roll outfit, the Band of Heathens has built a potent body of recorded work that’s won the Austin, Texas ensemble a reputation as one of its hometown’s most vital musical resources,” says a press release. “They’ve won a fiercely loyal fan base and a reputation as one of America’s hardest-working touring acts, while revealing a musical and lyrical depth that consistently enriches the band’s infectious song craft.”
Their fourth studio album is “Sunday Morning Record.” They play The Grey Eagle on Thursday, Oct. 24. 9:15 p.m., $10/$12.
