NEWS // Gauntlet Hair Ends

We are sad to say that Gauntlet Hair has officially come to an end. Andy and Craig are two powerhouse musicians that we were more than lucky to have and very honored to be a part of our roster. As a band, they created some amazing music and put on some fantastic live performances that will be talked about for years. We are touched, but not surprised, by the fans’ emphatic responses on Facebook and Twitter and would like to echo their thoughts. Although we are sad to see them go, we know they will continue to innovate by creating music that will keep people talking and connect to new fans just like their first two albums with Dead Oceans.

So long and all the best of luck in your future, Craig and Andy, we’re excited to hear what’s next.
