Vandoliers cover The Proclaimers, plan 2020 tours

Texas country punks Vandoliers have released a new cover version of 1990s hit "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)"  (The Proclaimers).

"Over the years it’s grown from a nostalgic anthem, to a drunken shanty, but it wasn’t until I was memorizing every word that I realized it was one of the greatest love songs ever written," vocalist Josh Fleming says of the decision for this particular cover.

The single released yesterday on digital platforms and precludes the band's upcoming US tour dates. Vandoliers also head to the UK and Europe this summer.

Vandoliers released Forever about a year ago on Bloodshot Records.
