One of our favorite Spotlight Bands we featured, LÅNGFINGER are about to embark on a European Winter Tour! Check out the news below:
Gothenburg power trio LÅNGFINGER will kick 2017 into gear with a sixteen-date European tour. Slated to begin on January 27th, the band will be joined by labelmates Captain Crimson and Orsak:Oslo on select dates. Additional dates will be announced in the weeks to come.“It’s time to bring the LÅNGFINGER machine on the road and we’re really excited to bring our latest album Crossyears with us,” said the band of the upcoming trek. “Be sure to catch our non-stop superlive experience as we roll across Europe this February and March!”LÅNGFINGER will be touring in support of their Crossyears full-length, out now via Small Stone. The ten-track long-player was recorded by Johan Reivén and Olle Björck at Sweden’s Welfare Sounds Studio with additional recordings by LÅNGFINGER at Beduin HQ, mixed by Olle Björck, and mastered by Daniel Johansson. Wrote the The Obelisk of Crossyears, “From the swing and stomp of its title-track to the organ-laced grandeur of ‘Atlas,’ the record brims with classic spirit, but casts off the stylistic restrictiveness of vintage production in favor of a full, vibrant sound, resulting in a mix that brings out the strengths of both without sacrificing the obvious chemistry the band has built over their time together. Also it rocks. Confidently.” Added Sea Of Tranquility in a near-perfect 4/5 score, “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 LÅNGFINGER to the already healthy list of outstanding Swedish retro rockers who are keeping the sounds of the ’70s alive.”LÅNGFINGER:1/27/2017 Revolver – Oslo, NO w/ Orsak:Oslo1/28/2017 Bastionen – Uddevalla, SE w/ Orsak:Oslo2/15/2017 Schaubude – Kiel, DE w/ Captain Crimson2/16/2017 TBA – Berlin, DE w/ Captain Crimson2/17/2017 De Engel – Den Helder, NL w/ Captain Crimson2/18/2017 Vortex – Siegen, DE w/ Captain Crimson2/19/2017 AMC – Antwerp, BE w/ Captain Crimson2/21/2017 Limes – Cologne, DE w/ Captain Crimson2/23/2017 Kurzbar – Mannheim, DE w/ Captain Crimson2/24/2017 Bruch Brothers – Luzern, CH w/ Captain Crimson2/26/2017 Dabadaba – San Sebastian, ES2/27/2017 Sala Acapulco – Gijon, ES3/01/2017 Club Tropicana – Santona, ES3/03/2017 Rocksound – Barcelona, ES3/04/2017 La Ley Seca – Zaragoza, ES3/10/2017 CC-Puben – Gävle, SEA 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.
