Vandoliers is an American alternative country music group from Texas founded in 2015. They were signed to State Fair Records in 2016 and have released two studio albums.
Vandoliers was formed in 2015 by Joshua Fleming, following the dissolution of his Fort Worth-based punk trio The Phuss, and an eye infection that left him nearly blind for eight weeks. During his recovery period, he discovered The Marty Stuart Show and the similarities between punk and country, and wrote the material that would go on to become the Vandoliers' debut album, Ameri-Kinda, during a fit of inspiration one weekend. With help from producer John Pedigo (The O's), Fleming put together a DFW supergroup featuring members of well-known local folk and metal groups Whiskey Folk Ramblers, Vinyl, Revolution Nine and Armadillo Creek, and rounding out the pair's Ameri-Kinda demos.
The following year, the band signed to State Fair Records, and in October 2016, the label re-released the album. Its follow-up The Native was recorded in the same studio where Willie Nelson made Red Headed Stranger, and released in May 2017. The album is noted for ushering in a cowpunk resurgence, leading to shows and tours with the likes of Reverend Horton Heat and Old 97's among others.
