Named after Ukrainian nomads, Scythian (sith-ee-yin) plays immigrant rock with thunderous energy, technical prowess, and storytelling songwriting, beckoning crowds into a barn-dance rock concert experience. Celebrating 10 years of getting people dancing all night, Scythian is releasing their new album, Jump at the Sun, August 15, with new songs debuting at shows before then. Ed Helms’s The Bluegrass Situation has given it early praise, calling “Paint This Town” a “shine-fueled, fiddle-flying hoedown” and “Built These Walls” a “blue-collar ballad we can all get behind.” Nashville’s Music City Roots says Scythian is “what happens when rock star charisma meets Celtic dervish fiddling.” Scythian’s “Immigrant Road Show” consists of Alexander Fedoryka, Josef Crosby, Danylo Fedoryka, Ben-David Warner, and Tim Hepburn. Larissa Fedoryka joins for the summer tour.
Scythian will travel to Ireland October 4-11 for a fan tour of the Emerald Isle.

“[Scythian gives] no quarter in their quest to entertain and bring a joy to their music that gives it an irony-free, wide open feel of manic possibility. The playing is technically brilliant, but it is the energy that carries the day.” —Camel City Dispatch (Winston-Salem, North Carolina)
“For the past 20 years we’ve relied on hip hop to get people on the dance floor, when in reality they just haven’t discovered [Scythian] yet.”—Arroe Collins, iHeartRadio
“Scythian’s enthusiasm is contagious, and shows seem to end with everyone dancing, jumping around or hoisting glasses.” —Washington Post
“‘Built These Walls’ is a blue-collar ballad we can all get behind.” —The Bluegrass Situation, reviewing new album Jump at the Sun
