Vacillating between dark and light with rhythm-heavy foundations, We Barbarians sucker most into thinking the collaboration is anything but a three piece. David Quon (singer/guitarist), Derek VanHeule (bass/vocals) and Nathan Warkentin (drums/vocals) formed in Long Beach, CA in 2007 from the throes of previous bands. Since their inception and the release of their debut album, 2009’s There's This There's That, the band has toured with Passion Pit, Local Natives, Tokyo Police Club, Ra Ra Riot, Cold War Kids, The Morning Benders and Les Savy Fav. We Barbarians has garnered critical acclaim for their previous releases, and recent shows at the Echo and Spaceland in Los Angeles revealed a sizeable and enthusiastic fan base that packed the house each night. Seattle’s KEXP has raved that “their songs’ oft-simplicity make them immediate classics” while the LA Times congratulated the band’s “insistent and persuasively aggressive noise.” With their atmospheric rock sound that incorporates rousing vocals, dramatic guitar flourishes and arresting rhythmic foundations, the group has inspired numerous comparisons to early U2. We Barbarians have completed work on a new EP, slated for release in Spring 2011.
