All too often in the music world the word 'supergroup' gets used when describing newly formed bands comprised of members from other active and inactive projects. Such is the case with Bosnian Rainbows, the group comprised of Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta/At the Drive-In), Teresa Suarez (Le Butcherettes), Deantoni Parks (Dark Angels, TMV) and Nicci Kasper (Dark Angels). Their eponymous debut album is slated for release next Tuesday (June 25), but fans and curiosity seekers alike will be able to see the band make its live US debut at the Casbah on Monday. Having heard a few tracks from the upcoming album (listen below), there is no mistaking the centerpiece of the band being lead vocalist Suarez (aka Teri Gender Bender). She does not scream in this role but creates a somewhat darker mood throughout the songs. Lopez showcases his guitar talents but is not shredding in this band. The overall effect is a compelling listen (so far) in anticipation of the album release.

Be sure to catch Bosnian Rainbows this Monday June 24 at the iconic Middletown venue. Sister Crayon lends support. Tickets can be purchased here.

Correction: Bosnian Rainbows played 4 May dates in Texas...The 6/24 Casbah show is the upcoming US tour opener...
