From desolate deserts to snow washed mountains Brent Amaker and The Rodeo have been searching for the Truth. This pursuit has produced numerous albums and taken them to venues across the world, in spotless matching threads, to perform their songs for a dedicated cult following. Their sound, which could aptly be described as a Morricone soundtrack written by Kraftwerk with dead serious classic country vocals, has garnered them placement in television shows such as Weeds, Californication and HBO’s Big Little Lies.

In 2018 Brent Amaker and the Rodeo will tour behind Brent Amaker’s first solo release “Goodbye”, set for a June 15th release on 7" picture disk with the B-sides "Eyedoog" and "700S Goodbye". “Goodbye” is Brent Amaker’s symphonic farewell to the great love of his life. Co-written by Portland producer Jeffrey Stuart Saltzman, “Goodbye” is Brent Amaker’s first ever solo release... and for good reason.

“It couldn’t be a Rodeo song”, according to Brent, “because it’s too sappy. The past couple of years have left me with a pile of emotional baggage. I needed to get it out. Think of this track as a bridge between Brent Amaker and the Rodeo full length albums. The next one is already recorded and is set to be mixed by Jeffrey Stuart Saltzman this summer”.

Brent Amaker and the Rodeo will be hitting the road for a swing of west coast tour dates in June as well, hitting Los Angeles, Portland, Las Vegas, Palm Springs and other cities, culminating in a hometown show in Seattle on June 22nd. Additionally, they've also been announced as a part of this summer's Bumbershoot Festival in Seattle over Labor Day weekend alongside the likes of Lil' Wayne, Fleet Foxes, SZA, Blondie, and many others. See below for the full set of upcoming live dates.
