Preview: Pallbearer plays The Hi-Fi


On Wednesday, February 28th, heavy and psychedelic rock lovers will be making their way to the Hi-Fi in Fountain Square, Indianapolis for a triple-feature show. Headlining the show will be Pallbearer. Also sharing the stage at The Hi-Fi will be Ruby The Hatchet, and Drude.


Pallbearer is a heavy metal band from Little Rock, Arkansas. They released their first demo back in 2010, and have since come out with three additional albums. Pallbearer’s most recent album came out in 2017, and is titled “Heartless”.

While Pallbearer has a history of leaning on the “very” side of heavy metal, their latest album marks a change toward rock. The Hi-Fi’s event page offers some more information on the album. “The band offers a complex sonic architecture that weaves together the spacious exploratory elements of classic prog, the raw anthemics of 90’s alt-rock, and stretches of black-lit proto-metal”.

The members of Pallbearer are Brett Campbell (vocals, guitar), Devin Holt (guitar), Joseph D. Rowland (bass), and Mark Lierly (drums). For more information on Pallbearer, you can visit their website. You can also find Pallbearer on Facebook.
