It's been awhile since our last update, so thought we'd bring you up to speed, as we've been very busy. Some notes from our recent travels...
1. We have a Bandcamp. Visit larkstongue.bandcamp.com and stream all our recorded output thus far. If you like what you hear, help us out by purchasing some vinyl, and hear this music the way it was intended to be heard. (It's worth it.)
2. Our split with Across Tundras comes out on Record Store Day, 4/20, gatefold vinyl on Cavity Records, featuring an awesome woodcut by Travis Lawrence of Infinity Prints. You're gonna want this on vinyl, but until then, satiate your ears by taking a listen at the aforementioned Bandcamp.
3. Speaking of Record Store Day, we'll be part of a two-day extravaganza at Younger Than Yesterday in Peoria. Legendary Nuggets garage-rockers Gonn will be making their first Peoria appearance since... EVER! We play Sunday at 2pm.
4. We're playing a free show in Peoria on April 5th at Pizza Works. We'll be celebrating a good friend's birthday with Hushpad and Otherkin, featuring members of La De Les. Good times. The following weekend, we'll be hitting up Toledo, Ohio, and Kalamazoo, Michigan! Check the shows page for an up-to-date listing of all future shows.
5. Our brothers-in-rock Il Cattivo will be making the Midwest scene for a 10-day Bird Dialect label showcase in May. Kansas City->St. Louis->Peoria->Milwaukee->Chicago->Springfield->Champaign->Iowa City->Omaha, and we hope to fit Bloomington in there as well. Men of Fortune and Lark's Tongue will be supporting them on various dates. Again, check the shows page for complete details. And don't forget to pick up the new Il Cattivo record on our own Bird Dialect.
6. We will begin tracking with Jeff Gregory in April and May for our full-length record, due out in spring 2014. We will also be contributing our cover of a Chokebore song to a forthcoming compilation being curated by The Sludgelord.
7. We'll be taking the month of June off so Chris can focus on the almighty Minsk, who will make their long-awaited return to the stage in early July. Gatefold vinyl release of With Echoes in the Movement of Stone is imminent.
8. Lark's Tongue will return from June hiatus with a 10-day jaunt to the east coast later this summer... Booking will soon commence, so hit us up if you want us to play your town!
9. Finally got some good band photos, thanks to Mark Randall Byland. Check out his new Facebook page, and get in touch with him if you have any photography needs.
