Mount Tyrant Are Your Play FLOODfest Winners of 2016

The Denton, Texas, dark pop quintet will be onhand to play in Austin at our SXSW festival alongside Vince Staples, MSTRKRFT, Ra Ra Riot, Poliça, and Peaches.

They may not be the best ever death metal band in Denton, Texas, but Mount Tyrant may very well be the best alternative rock band in Denton, as we found out together with Ernie Ball, now that the group has been chosen as the winners of our Play FLOODfest contest! As the chosen ones, the quintet have won a prize package valued at more than $30,000, and a spot to play at SXSW next week in our very own FLOODfest Austin.

Mount Tyrant will be getting things going on Friday, opening up for the likes of Petit Noir, Alex G, and Thao & the Get Down Stay Down. Later that night, the same stage will be graced by none other than King, The Range, Boulevards, Gallant, and Vince Staples.

Our congrats to the group, and thanks to everyone who entered! Hope to see you in Austin.
