Austin outfit Snowden has apparently wooed the shaggy brethren of Kings of Leon's. Jordan Jeffares recently signed up his band for the Kings' new Serpents & Snakes label and will be releasing an album called No One In Control later this Fall. To tease its' release the band have put together a rather pounding video for "The Beat Comes"; an almost mini-film of a classic, boxing training montage.
Taking its name from Joseph Heller's Catch 22
, Snowden is comprised of Chandler Rentz (drums), Corinne Lee (bass, keyboard), David Payne (guitar), and Jordan Jeffares (vocals, guitar, keyboard). The band formed in 2004, during frontman Jeffares' last year in college.
The group's early recordings consisted of bedroom demos and self-recorded EPs. Indie-radio success in their homestate of Georgia turned into a slew of shows in New York City, and Snowden soon signed with Jade Tree. Anti-Anti
, the group's Jade Tree debut, was released in the summer of 2006.
