Kentucky’s dark country act LOST DOG STREET BAND today leaves on the second leg of their 2020 Winter Tour with Caspar Allen, continuing to perform in support of their acclaimed fifth album, Weight Of A Trigger. The band has also announced the next tour for the year which sees them kicking off the summer with The Hill Country Devil on the 2020 Heartland Tour.
Following its release through Anti-Corporate Music in March of 2019, LOST DOG STREET BAND‘s Weight Of A Trigger LP hit #5 on the Billboard Bluegrass charts, remaining charted for more than a month. This accomplishment was achieved through the band’s hard work, their diehard fanbase, and the DIY work of the small label’s team. The band also traversed the country for several months preceding and subsequent to its release. During their time off the road since the fall months, Benjamin Tod released his new solo LP A Heart Of Gold Is Hard To Find, which also debuted on the Billboard Bluegrass charts.
LOST DOG STREET BAND began the year touring from late January through February on a on the first run of their 2020 Winter Tour with support from their friend Casper Allen, and this week the second leg begins. From March 11th through April 2nd they’ll caravan across the eastern half of the country once again joined by Casper Allen.
The LOST DOG STREET BAND crew has also announced their next tour for the year, posting dates for their 2020 Heartland Tour. Running from May 27th through June 7th, the band will be joined by The Hill Country Devil.

Weight Of A Trigger is available on CD and LP via Anti-Corporate Music HERE and Bandcamp where the album is streaming HERE. See the “War Inside Of Me” video HERE.
LOST DOG STREET BAND‘s Weight Of A Trigger is a portal into when Americana was peopled by sensitive outlaws who pleaded for salvation in song; a potent distillation of its outlaw heartache soul. The ten-song collection spans old-time music, Appalachian folk, redemptive country blues, and winsome balladry. Each song is elegantly essential, using teardrop pedal steel guitar, delicate fingerpicked passages, emotive harmony vocals, and stately violin touches as delicate dynamic touches. The members’ influences of Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Doc Watson, Devil Makes Three, Tyler Childers, Hooray For The Riff Raff, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, Arlo McKinley, and more shine through the band’s emotional lyrics and infectious hooks.
