Bandmates Adam Brandt and Jeffrey Earl came up with the name "National Barks" to honor their first demo recordings as a newly created Cincinnati band.
Each track unintentionally included Brandt's dogs barking in the background as pedestrians passed their practice space. Fortunately, the music matched the hounds' haunting howls, so the name stuck. With a retro, spooky vibe, National Barks explores a side of rock that will make you feel like you're riding along with the gang solving mysteries or watching a closeup shot of Uma Thurman's Feet. National Barks features Adam Brandt on guitar and vocals; Jeffery Earl on drums and vocals; and Joe Memory on bass.
