Ha Ha Tonka is an unmistakable indie-meets-Southern rock band. Sitting at the crossroads of Americana and indie- where Alabama meets Arcade Fire- the quartet recently released their fourth full-length album, Lessons, via Bloodshot Records.
Now, the band unveil their striking video for Lessons album opener “Dead To The World.” A simultaneously poignant & bittersweet oeuvre, the video premiered with American Songwriter. The “Dead To The World” video below.

Ha Ha Tonka will be heading to Telluride, CO on Dec. 30th for a FREE show at the Sheridan Opera House, which will serve as the party/announcement of the Austin City Limits 40th Anniversary weekend aka The Ride 2014.

Ha Ha Tonka, comprised of Brett Anderson, Lennon Bone, Lucas Long and Brian Roberts, has become renowned for its authentic, effortless brand of indie-Americana, seamlessly fusing the traditional with modern, contemporary elements.
