The band’s newly converted veggie oil-powered bus will take them westward for a week of shows in Texas and Oklahoma with Bear Colony before joining up with Fake Problems and Cobra Skulls for eight days of Left Coast shenanigans. Finally, the boys will conclude their national expedition in the Southeast playing shows with The Winter Sounds.
In early October, Look Mexico will take a short break before heading back out for two additional weeks of touring along the East Coast. Eventually, they’ll end up where all Beartrap bands seem to be ending up on Halloween weekend: at The Fest in Gainesville, F.L. More info on those dates soon.
The national tour coincides with Lujo Records’ digital release of Gasp Asp, the band’s newest four song EP. You can pick it up from iTunes here.
For a limited time, you can grab a free mp3 from Gasp Asp. Check out the first track, “You’re Not Afraid Of The Dark Are You?” here.
Earlier this year, Lujo released The Crucial Collection and is also responsible for unleashing Look Mexico’s awesome debut full-length, This Is Animal Music, upon the world in 2007.
Gasp Asp will be receiving the vinyl treatment very soon as well; a three song seven inch version of the EP will be available in early October. Stay tuned for a pre-order news, as well an announcement regarding the stupid label responsible for this inevitable plastic disaster…
As always, I suggest you catch one of these shows if possible. Look Mexico never fail to excite and entertain. And if you’re lucky, you might get spit on. Just kidding (sort of).
