Pennsylvania stoner/doom rockers BACKWOODS PAYBACK, who were forced to cut their tour with Lo Pan short this past March due to a medical emergency, return to the van today on the appropriately titled”June 2011 Back On The Horse Tour.” The band will levy their stoner doom tonight at the Crayola House in Harrisonburg, Virginia before dousing 15 more cities with their low-end brand of awesome. The tour includes a June 17 stop in Kenosha, Wisconsin as a part of the Days Of The Doomed Fest. The band will be joined by Maryland psych-masters, Admiral Browning.
BACKWOODS PAYBACK will be release their Small Stone Recordings debut entitled Momantha later this year.
Commented guitarist/vocalist Mike Cummings: “We are really excited to start touring in support of our Small Stone Recordings debut. Everything that we’ve been through this year so far will have been worth it when we FINALLY get these jams out there to the people! See you on the road…turn on, tune in, DROP OUT TO LIVE!”
