THE HOWLING TONGUES Join Leopold and His Fiction Tour (Feb 28 – Mar 11)

January 24, 2017 by 1888media


Fresh from a raucous sold out show at Terminal West, rock revivalists The Howling Tongues have announced a series of dates as direct support for Austin rock outfit, Leopold and His Fiction. Jumping on the last leg of the Leopold tour from February 28 to March 11, the trek will hit Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Charlotte, Nashville, Atlanta, New Orleans, Little Rock, Memphis and Dallas before The Tongues head to SXSW for several showcases.

With a no-holds-barred live show courtesy of Davey Rockett (vocals), Nick Magliochetti (lead guitar), Thomas Wainwright (keys), Brandon Witcher (bass), and drummer Tylor James, the 11-city run will highlight songs from BOO HISS, the group’s blues-soaked, rafter-rattling sophomore album. Spawning rock radio staples, “Vivian,” “Belladonna,” and forthcoming single, “Raw Power in A Red Dress,” the album achieved widespread critical acclaim with Performer Magazine loudly declaring, “If you’re looking for a band to restore your faith in rock ‘n roll, you’ve found it.”

Elsewhere Apple Music highlighted the funky hip-swivel soul of “Greatest Lover Around,” as the song found itself strutting a John Varvatos runway during New York Fashion Week.

Making its tour debut will be a rip-roaring rendition of the Creedence Clearwater Revival classic “Up Around The Bend.” Hand-picked as the anthem of a year-long Wrangler Jeans campaign that launched last fall, “Bend” was heard around the clock on ESPN and FOX Sports, igniting nationwide airplay of the song. As the spot infiltrated millions of homes, the band raced up the Shazam buzzworthy chart while the official commercial logged 3 million views on YouTube.

With the raw power of a fiery zeppelin scorching every destination from the busy streets of Manhattan to the hilltops of the Appalachians, your new favorite band is up around the bend and your world will never be the same again.

“The band’s style is reminiscent of Jet or the Black Keys with the power of Zeppelin.” Rock On Philly

“Like Aerosmith and The Black Crowes—they’ve got the essentials: the riffs, the swagger, the live-wire energy.” Daily Vault

In Our Bones turns 1 today 💞
With what this album, and the band Against The Current, means to me, today is a happy day to celebrate!
Over the past year, IOB was the soundtrack to my life, at the core of adventures near and far, physical and metaphysical, spiritual and unbelievable.
In addition to my love for the music, the words expressed and sentiments conveyed resonate deeply. I've learned a great deal about life, love, and myself. It's been a transcendent journey!
In Our Bones is in my bones, my heart and soul.
A light that shines Forevermore.

The first 7 episodes of Season 2 of Against The Current were absolutely brilliant!
The adventures undertaken and the magic of those days/nights will be remembered forever. I had so much fun!
ATC is on a mid-season break though I'm looking forward to some fall/winter episodes. In the meantime, I may find myself daydreaming about cherished moments w/ my favorite band.

Happy Mother's Day!
Just arrived to Boston where I'm wrapping up one of my favorite weekends ever and am reminiscing about one of my other favorite weekends ever, one I shared with my Mom. She always wanted to go to the NE in the fall to see the changing leaves in all their glorious colors and I always wanted to visit Boston and Vermont so we made a long weekend of it (also scoped out New Hampshire). She's also a fan of lighthouses so we went to Nantucket one afternoon. The weather was perfect and the island was charming. We had a great time. When I talked to her today, we reminisced and talked about where to go on our next trip. I miss her but I'll be seeing her soon. 🤘🏻🤘🏻
Last two nights with Against The Current at Irving F*ckin Plaza were an absolute blast!! They were AMAZING, the crowd was super was so much fun! Hearing Gravity, Runaway, Running With The Wild Things, Roses and Wasteland in NYC made it truly special! Will forever remember these 2 nights.
