Asphalt Horsemen was formed by well-known musicians in Hungary in 2010. First they led into jams of songs of bands like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Black Stone Cherry, Pride & Glory. Soon came up their own ideas of songs which were working out and tested at smaller gigs. The audience reaction was splendid as they felt heavy-load beating of Southern Rock on their skin.
The genre what AH plays fills a gap in the rock music-scale in Hungary, it’s not really found this style among local bands.
In March 2014 their debut album was released which received positive feedback from both national and international audiences. The album was nominated as the ‘best newcomer of the year 2014’ by the Hungarian Recording Industry Association – Hungarian Group of IFPI.
After several tours, shows in Hungary, Finland, Italy, Czech Republic, Slovakia and Romania they recorded the second album, ‘Brotherhood‘ to be released on January 13th, 2017 all over the world.
