Purple Hearse

The musical partnership of Tony Bennett and Ian Prince goes back nearly 20 years to their time together in Duluth’s most infamous metal band, the Dames. In 2015 they got back together to premiere their new act, Purple Hearse, at Homegrown. With Bennett on lead guitar and Prince on drums, the duo performs spontaneous hard rock that Bennett describes as “freeform Godhead, Silo or Death From Above 1979 mixed with some sludge, noise and krautrock.” They’ve hit the recording studio recently, hoping a new album is in their future.
