LO-PAN: Ohio Road Dogs Set To Kick Off Fall Tour Next Week!

There’s no rest for the Ohio road dogs known as LO-PAN. Having recently completed the successful Let Freedom Ding tour (allegedly named for the many bells that mysteriously occupy the dashboard of the band’s van), the band will set out an another trek through the Northeast and Midwest alongside Small Stone label mates Suplecs and Backwoods Payback. The journey will include two separate Small Stone showcases in Philadelphia on September 23 and Chicago on October 1.

LO-PAN will be touring in support of their critically-lauded Small Stone Records debut, Salvador.

In addition, Small Stone’s 180-gram vinyl pressing of Salvador is available now in white and red/blue clear swirl. Whatever flavor you choose, it’s delicious, and available now at smallstone.com/store. The band will also have copies with them on the road.

The proverbial bar has been raised, and if they can keep up this level of performance and songwriting across their next few offerings, LO-PAN could easily stand as one of the most important bands of their generation in the genre. Yes, they’re that good, and yes, you really, really need to hear this album.” — The Obelisk

“…an utter triumph…” — The Number Of The Blog

“If you’ve ever liked stoner rock, classic rock, rocky rock, whatever…you can’t miss Salvador.” — Hellride
