Boston, MA – As evidence of their building buzz, punk upstarts LOST CITY ANGELS have nabbed a supporting slot on Catch 22’s Spring 2005 tour, starting on March 8th at New York City’s Irving Plaza (tour dates attached). With dates that travel up north to Ohio’s Cleveland Heights (Grog Shop on March 10) to Kansas City, MO (El Torreon on March 15) to the Troubador in West Hollywood and then back East again, this tour will give LCA’s fans their first taste of the new material from their forthcoming Stay Gold album Broken World, to be released on April 4, 2005. In addition, LCA also secured a highly coveted slot on 2005’s WARPED Tour, beginning in July 2005.
“We’re stoked for the Catch 22 tour,” replied drummer Adam Shaw. “I’ve got a naughty feeling about it. I cannot, repeat, cannot wait to get the f*ck out of Boston and play these new songs around the country!” Adds bassist Duggan about WARPED Tour, “There’s no better tour than WARPED for a real rock/punk band to be on. Excellent exposure, fun as f*ck, and they treat their bands like gold – free box of water and free case of beer!”
Already garnering huge plaudits from the punk website PuckNation.com who bestowed a 10 out of 10 review (“Incredible song construction on par with Green Day’s recent stuff, the right mix of ‘whoas’ to make Pennywise jealous… punk to its core and showing the veterans how it’s done.”) and Western Pennsylvania’s Beaver County Times (“At last, something worthwhile has come out of Boston… LCA is a melodic punk band in the vein of Social Distortion”), Broken World is 13 tracks of pure hardcore genius. Chock full with emotional weight and unbridled energy, LCA’s second album runs the gamut from the battle cry of “Liberation”, to the tempo-shifting “Clutching at Shadows”, to the punk classic in waiting, “Hardly Seems”.
Broken World was produced, mixed and engineered by Sean Slade and Paul Q. Kolderie and will be released nationwide on Stay Gold Records on April 4, 2005
