When we first interviewed The Boxer Rebellion back in March of 2009, we found a band that was humble, yet clearly on the verge of greatness. The release of their second album, Union put them on the top of the iTunes alternative charts in the U.S. and U.K. despite not being signed to a record label. Since then, the momentum has continued to grow and with their appearance at this years South By Southwest, they are being touted as the “band to watch” by many of the major music magazines. Comparisons to early U2 and The Verve don’t begin to describe the depth and emotion of this fantastic band. With their impending show in our hometown of Dallas, Texas, the band took some time to reflect on the past year and give us a taste of what is yet to come.
We took this opportunity to launch our partnership with iTunes, which will allow us to bring you weekly interviews with some great musicians of the past and present. Since TBR, were one of the first bands we inteviewed when the site launched a couple of years ago, we thought they were the perfect candidate for this first podcast.
