The Burden Brothers are a hard rock band. They came together in the city of Dallas, Texas. They were brought together by Toadies lead singer/songwriter Vaden Todd Lewis and Reverend Horton Heat/Izzy Stradlin drummer Taz Bentley.
The band currently consists of Lewis (Vocals/Guitar), Bentley (Drums/Vocals), and Casey Hess (Guitar/Vocals). Right now, the band is an indefinite hiatus, due to the Toadies reunion and other interests.
Vaden Todd Lewis who is the Lead singer/songwriter for the band, was recently coming off of a short-lived reunion of his platinum-selling 90s band called Toadies.
The band once again broke up after an unsuccessful album release and tour together. The main members Taz Bentley and Vaden Todd Lewis are both residents of Dallas. They had met
on tours where the Toadies and Reverend Horton Heat often played together. The two began jamming together, and eventually decided to start a band in 2002. They derived their name from a sign on the side of a building in their city. Lewis explains "I Just like the connection of family and guilt associated together. It also kind of makes me think of brothers - like me and Taz doing it as a team". After many bad experiences with record labels, they decided to keep the band low-key and down low. They began to make tracks available via the internet, but soon received interest from local record labels.
The band released three EPs that were recorded by Lewis and Bentley as well as a revolving door of other musicians. The EPs that were titled 8 Ball, Queen O' Spades, and "Beautiful Night" are perceived to be released on Last Beat Records. They received a warm reception to these EPs, and radio play of their promotional single "Beautiful Night" in Tulsa, Dallas, and Houston areas in heavy rotation. The band has now decided to come out with a full-length album.
