Indie Rock Group, BANTA, Announces Tour and June 3rd Album Release

Los Angeles indie rock group, Banta, has announced a west coast tour leading up to the release of their June 3rd debut full-length album Dark Charms.  Banta’s latest single “Three Feet From Gold,” was 4th most added at AAA radio, with airplay at KINK in Portland, KTAO in Taso, NM, WZEW in Mobile, AL and more.  Listen to “Three Feet From Gold” here.

Banta formed in 2013 after Sharaya Mikael moved to LA from Portland and reignited her passion for creating music. She brought together four other fantastic musicians with a penchant for buoyant indie rock songs, and the group unveiled their debut EP in 2014. Banta began playing shows around Los Angeles, including the Buzzbands LA Showcase at Echo Park Rising and opening slots at The Satellite and The Troubadour, which eventually led to the band touring with Houndmouth in the summer of 2015.
