Local singer-guitarist Sam Getz was a session guy before he joined local singer-songwriter Kate Voegele for her 2006 tour. He spent four years on the road with her and then hooked up with indie rockers Stephen Kellogg & the Sixers and toured with them for three years. When that band took a hiatus in 2012, Getz put together Welshly Arms, christening the group with a name that comes from a Saturday Night Live skit.

The band’s been steadily touring and recording ever since.

Earlier today, the group released its latest song, “Down to the River.” A grunge-y, White Stripes-like tune, the single follows the previously released songs “Indestructible" and “Sanctuary,” both of which come from the band’s major label debut, No Place Is Home, which is set for release on May 25.

This summer, the group will support Thirty Seconds To Mars on the last leg of its tour, and it will perform at festivals such as the Hangout Music Festival, BottleRock, Bunbury Music Festival, Firefly Music Festival, Summerfest, Lollapalooza and Life Is Beautiful.
