Lo-Pan and Black Cobra tour

Posted by Morgan Ywain Evans on Friday, August 8, 2014 at 7:32 AM (PST)


Ohio volume squad, LO-PAN, is readying to take to the streets again on a mammoth live excursion alongside San Francisco’s Black Cobra. The journey will commence in Phoenix  on August 18th and wind through nearly three dozen cities, coming to a close in Oakland on October 2nd.


Comments the band, “LO-PAN is proud to be doing our part to support the oil and gas industry of America! Land of the Free home of the Brave. Seriously though anyone have an unlimited gas card they want to donate to our mission from god? Also, Black Cobra rules and we are very excited to support them on this trek.”

The tour comes in advance of the band’s forthcoming full-length, Colossus. Named for the Colossus of Rhodes – a ninety-six-foot statue of the Greek titan-god of the sun, Helios, constructed in 280 BC to mark a failed siege and the indomitable nature of the Greek city of Rhodes itself – LO-PAN‘s fourth opus serves as their most personal manifestation to date and a true testament to their evolution as a band. Having road-tested songs like “Eastern Seas” and the title track for over a year, and partnering with producer/engineer Andrew Schneider (Unsane, Rosetta, East Of The Wall et al) at his Translator Audio studio in Brooklyn, the Columbus four-piece knew exactly what they wanted out of this recording. They belted out songs that reveal just how much they’ve moved beyond their influences to arrive at their own sound – a style built on aggression without caricature, fuzz without cliché, melody without redundancy and their meanest groove to date.
