Scythian returns to the Paramount Friday, September 26th at 7:30 pm.

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 released their new album, Jump at the Sun, August 15. 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.
