Gothenburg power trio LÃ…NGFINGER will perform a week’s worth of live dates in Spain this March. The journey will run from March 10th through March 17th. Comments the band, “We’re happy to announce that we’re heading back to Spain this spring. As we’re working on our new album, it’s hard to think of something better than to take a break and head down south. We’re looking forward to premiering a ton of new material as we’ll be frolicking our way over the peninsula!” See all confirmed dates below.

LÃ…NGFINGER‘s latest studio offering, the ten-track Crossyears, was released last year via Small Stone. Wrote Sea Of Tranquility in a 4/5 review, “If you love albums like Mountain’s Climbing!, any of Led Zeppelin, Humble Pie, and Grand Funk Railroad’s first few, and even The Who’s Who’s Next, you’ll find plenty to sink your teeth into here on Crossyears. Add LÃ…NGFINGER to the already healthy list of outstanding Swedish retro rockers who are keeping the sounds of the ’70s alive.”

A truly kick ass power trio is quite possibly the perfect rock formation. If there aren’t that many trios around, that’s because it’s a hard thing to pull off: with just three people having to nail the rhythmic fusion of bass and drums, the wild colors of guitar, and the soul-grabbing focus of the human voice, there can be no passengers aboard. Extraordinary chemistry is essential. Everyone has to be right on it, and locked in. Which is why lots of trios fail, or cop out, and recruit extras.
The members of LÃ…NGFINGER, hailing from the fertile rock ‘n’ roll city of Gothenburg, are masters of the art. They’ve been playing together since they were in their early teens, and their imminent third album is both the thrilling culmination of their collective endeavor, and a rumination on it – on how time has shaped them and brought them to this point. Within its hard-hitting grooves, the interlocking of LÃ…NGFINGER‘s three disparate characters – Kalle Lilja, the unflappable, precision axeman; Jesper Pihl, the athletic sticksman battering out physical revenge on his kit; and Victor Crusner, the intense, exploratory spirit, bridging thundering bass and howling exorcism – is a magical proposition.
