    ​​Earlier this month, Band of Horses guitarist Tyler Ramsey and bassist Bill Reynolds announced their departure from the band. The remaining band members — frontman Ben Bridwell, keyboardist Ryan Monroe, and drummer Creighton Barrett — have yet to publicly comment, but they appear to have filled in the gaps, as they’ve begun performing with two new players and announced an expanded tour schedule.

    Band of Horses kicked off a summer leg in Tallahassee, Florida on May 18th, two weeks after Ramsey and Reynolds had left. Joining them on stage were Archer of Loaf’s Matt Gentling, who previously played bass with the band before Reynolds joined, and guitarist Richie Kirkpatrick, currently a member of Langhorne Slim and The Law.

    Though it’s not yet known if Gentling and Kirkpatrick will come on as full-time members, it seems they’ll be with Band of Horses for the foreseeable future. That includes a new stretch of US dates scheduled for the fall. Check out their complete itinerary below.
