AUGUST TOUR THROUGH THE HEARTLAND
there’s a wise old adage that says “never play in Florida”. but here at TLAT HQ, we brazenly throw the baby out with the bathwater and spit straight into the wind of logic and will proudly follow any fool off of any cliff. with that said, we’re really excited to announce these dates that cover Florida and much of the Beautiful South. please turn to page 436 in your hymnals and join us in singing “How Great Thou Art” while flying off said cliff. Amen.

DOPPELGANGERS EP – 7 or so songs from seemingly unlikely artists being given the Test of ‘Times treatment. the TOT treatment. we’ve been burning in the stude working on these jammers and are very stoked for you guys to dig in. these are just a few of the bands we’re not covering : Dangerous Toys, Megadeth, Bang Tango, Crash Test Dummies, the Biebs, Crucifux, Gin Blossoms, Anal Cunt, Burt Bacharach, and many others.
the bands and artists we are covering are wide ranging and occupy deep places within the hearts of each of us. or at least one of us. that was a pre-req to make the list. (see: prerequisite). all will be revealed in the coming weeks as we get artrworked finished up before the tour. some songs are pretty far-stretched reimaginings and others are kinda straight up.
very happy to be to be coming out east to you guys in the states that go like this: OH PA NY DC and MI. you know who you are. go to the tour dates page for ticket links. i’d get em early. hopefully i won’t be crying hateful tears during the show after this dumpter-fire of an election. bring acid and sandwiches.
