The Unlikely Candidates are an American indie rock band from Fort Worth, Texas. Formed in 2008, The Unlikely Candidates initially started as an acoustic duo with childhood friends Kyle Morris and Cole Male and then expanded with guitarist Brenton Carney, bassist Jared Hornbeek and drummer Kevin Goddard. In 2013, the band released their single "Follow My Feet," which peaked at No. 35 on the Alternative Songs chart. In 2016, their hooky single in "Your Love Could Start a War" reached number No. 36 on Billboard's Alternative Songs chart, and 2017’s “Ringer” topped at No. 38. The Unlikely Candidate’s catchy, energetic and bluesy rock rhythms will have the crowd moving on November 17.
