Flaunting outsider panache and theatrical hooks as oversized as their home state of Texas, The Unlikely Candidates formed at a high school party before going on to release three EPs and log countless miles on the road alongside everyone from Sublime With Rome, The Offspring, the Dirty Heads and Fall Out Boy. Most recently, 2017’s Bed of Liars spawned “Your Love Could Start A War,” which clocked over 15 million Worldwide streams and charted in the top 40 at Alternative Radio. Along the way, the band has earned acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, AXS, Esquire and more. The quintet kicked off 2018 by releasing a Deluxe Edition of their Danger To Myself EP, which features the single “Oh My Dear Lord.” More recently, The Unlikely Candidates wrapped up a co-headlining U.S. tour with Brick + Mortar before releasing their new song, “Best I Ever Had,” which has over 1.9 million streams Worldwide.
