New York City-based Outernational is one of those rare bands that come around once every few years that makes music that truly crosses borders and musical genres. Their sound is an eclectic mix of The Clash-style punk rock with a little Gogol Bordello swagger. Add some socially conscious lyrics and you have the self-branded “future rock” sound that is Outernational.
The band is currently on tour in support of their new release, Future Rock. The Tom Morello (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) produced EP is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed Todos Somos Illegales. The Austin tour stop will be this Friday night, August 10, at Lambert’s with DJ Manolo Black of Peligrosa.
