The Invincible Czars make hard-to-categorize music for lovers of everything in the “other” category. They’ve evolved from an ambitious rag-tag rock-bordering-on-metal group on Austin’s Red River scene to a nationally touring, heavy metal influenced art-rock powerhouse with one foot in the arts scene and one in the rock world. The band plays clubs, theaters and universities all over the US and Canada. Their unique and always changing instrumentation, ambitious projects and variety of styles & influences attracts fans of Mr. Bungle, Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, Zappa, NoMeansNo, Brave Combo, Bernard Herrmann, Iron Maiden and even Tchaikovsky. Musicianship, humor and experimentation abound. They also have a pretty sweet wardrobe collection.
Lately, the band has focused on accompanying silent horror films live with their own soundtracks to much acclaim. The Alamo Drafthouse has called them of the best in the nation. What flattery!
