"Megafaun don't just catalog American musical languages, they breed them", writes Pitchfork in a preview of the band's album "Gather, Form & Fly".

The band was built by brothers Brad and Phil Cook and fellow Eau Claire, Wisconsin native Joe Westerlund from the ashes of DeYarmond Edison, the group they had formed with longtime friend Justin "Bon Iver" Vernon.

Megafaun are part of that rare breed of young artists driven by an unquenchable thirst for a wide range of sounds and styles. Pick a song at random, and don’t be surprised to hear delicate Appalachian banjo figures, tumbling Steve Reich ...


Megafaun in Europe... The Sequel!

Megafaun return to European shores in triumph this March!

If you didn't see them last time round (their debut EU tour was late last year), you missed a banjo-wielding, noise-embracing, good-times-bringing jamboree that often saw the band ending up in the middle of the crowd ... here's your chance to join the fun!  

To celebrate, they are releasing a new digital single of "Kaufman's Ballad" (as taken from the band's masterful Gather, Form & Fly" album), backed with "Wreck On The Highway", a cover of a dark song with a troubled story: credited for years to country music pioneer Roy Acuff (who recorded it in 1942), it was actually written by an obscure millworker and musician named Dorsey Dixon, who had to struggle for years to gain back his rights.
