The Invincible Czars - Martyrs of the Alamo
Austin's Invincible Czars have made their mark by creating exceptionally original music: songs and instrumental pieces that are like four-to-five minute mini-symphonies chock full of memorable melodies, meticulous arrangements, dynamics, and humor. Their music fuses riff rock, classical/symphonic music, heavy metal, loungey grooves, odd meters, klezmer, country shuffles, punk rock and circusy polka. They draw from influences as disparate as Slint and Igor Stravinsky, Van Halen and Louis Armstrong, and The Melvins and Ween. The band applies the DIY attitude of post-punk groups like NoMeansNo and Fugazi to their musical explorations, resulting in a whole that is greater than the sum of its parts.

Austin's own Invincible Czars announce their Spring 2012 tour dates through the Southern U.S. in support of their fifth original score for silent film, Martyrs of the Alamo - a 1915 western that depicts the story of the defense of the mission-turned fortress by 185 Texans against the overwhelming Mexican army in 1836. The band kicks off the tour on March 6, the anniversary of the Battle of the Alamo, at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in Austin, Texas. At each screening, the score will be performed live to the film before an audience.

'The Czars' have added their own unique spin to typical western movie soundtrack fare - odd meters, humor, and a variety of dynamic and musical influences. This score incorporates a Texas-sized mess of instruments including guitar, bass, flute, clarinet, keyboards, violin, drums and a banker's box full of hand percussion instruments.

The Invincible Czars began scoring original music for silent films in 2006 with Aelita, Queen of Mars, Destiny (der Mude Tod) and The Unknown, drawing influences from the classical realm using the music of Copland, Tchaikovsky, and Fernando Sor. In the past few years, they have also become known and lauded for their sprawling catalogue of original material as well as for arrangements of classical works such as Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite, the 1812 Overture, and Mussorgsky's "A Night on Bald Mountain.
