Oregon’s Larry and His Flask have announced that they will release a brand new EP Hobo’s Lament, which will be released on September 25, 2012 on Paper + Plastick Records. The EP’s first track, “Closed Doors” premiered yesterday on American Songwriter and can be heard here. They also will be playing all over the country this Fall, including this Saturday at Riot Fest in Brooklyn.
For the unintiated, Larry and His Flask make music that lies somewhere between a barn raising and a mosh pit. The New York Times calls them “uncommonly joyous” and “deviously astute”, while their live show is a “breathless, polymorphous good time.” Time Out Chicago says, “On paper Larry and His Flask are awesome – but the band remains that awesome in person.” Originally conceived as a four piece punk band, the group has swelled into a fully realized sextet with strong Americana influences complete with stand-up bass, mandolin and banjo. Their live act is not to be missed – unlike any other band playing music today, Larry and His Flask truly incorporate their audiences into each show, connecting to create an experience that converts everyone into fans and permeates the border between performer and spectator.
After spending this past spring and summer traversing the, Europe, Canada, Alaska and the Yukon Territory, the band is set to embark on a two month-long US tour supporting Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls, which kicks off this Thursday in Boston (tour dates below). The band is also set to appear at this weekend’s Riot Fest Brooklyn in addition to Riot Fest Chicago later in the month and Gainesville’s Fest 11 in October.
The EP will be released digitally and as a limited edition 12″ picture disc. Pre-order for the record will be available soon via the Paper + Plastick website at: www.paperandplastick.com
