The White Iron Band is a high-energy renegade American roots band specializing in foot stompin, forget-what-troubles-ya music. With energy to blow your face off and enough soul to well your eyes, the band is best taken live with friends and strangers. White Iron shows combine lyrical accessibility and explosive musicianship to produce a rich experience for the head, heart, and legs.
Originally formed in Ely, MN, the heart of Minnesota’s northern Iron Range, by frontman Matt Pudas, guitarist Sammy Weyandt and keyboardist Eddie Juntenen, the White Iron Band embodies the triumphs and struggles of the everyday man. Their songs carry a tinge of the old cowboy legends canonized by the Highwaymen, with stories ranging from tales of love, pain, jail, work and whiskey. Now based in Minneapolis, the group has established a passionate and equally as rowdy fan-base throughout the Midwest and has traveled further to spread their unique mix of blues, country and Americana roots music.
After more than 10 years together the band has played over a thousand shows and released four full-length, original albums. After the success of their latest independent release Devil’s Sweet Revenge (2008), the group has gone back to the studio with renewed vigor to record a fifth album. With a long road behind them, the White Iron Band has shown they are worth the wait and is on the brink of breaking into the national music scene.
The White Iron Band has supported and shared the stage with such acts as David Allen Coe, Warren Haynes, Derek Trucks, North Mississippi Allstars, Shooter Jennings, and many more.
