Ohio tour hounds, LO-PAN, are currently trekking through the Northeast and Midwest alongside Small Stone label mates Suplecs and Backwoods Payback. The follow-up to their successful Let Freedom Ding tour this summer (allegedly named for the many bells that mysteriously occupy the dashboard of the band’s van), commenced on September 15 and has already sullied its way through 12 cities.
The band is touring in support of their critically-lauded Small Stone Records debut, Salvador, which The Number Of The Blog called “…an utter triumph….” Noted Hellride: “If you’ve ever liked stoner rock, classic rock, rocky rock, whatever…you can’t miss Salvador.”
Commented The Obelisk of the band’s recent performance at Union Pool in Brooklyn, New York: “Clearly just a band at the top of their game making the most of their time on the road. It’s exciting to watch them.”
The LO-PAN journey will include a Small Stone showcase in Chicago on October 1. Check updated tour dates below and don’t miss this tour!
