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

Made Of Matches


▪️this is massively important▪️
we often wear wigs
masking thorns in our twigs
as we try to exist
with twists that persist
my cloak of invincibility
at times, gets jiggy
as it wobbles
pride gets swallowed
emotion runs wild
equanimity exiled
serenity defiled
i want to seem perfect
as i hide behind the curtain
i may be a wizard
but i'm not invisible
to the effects of the eternal
i am self-aware of who i am
and want to become a better man
i apologize for my failure
to heed a helping hand
i was hurt at first
fretting the worst
my mind swirled
perceived judgement being hurled
while it took a minute
to fully digest it
your wisdom and insight
showed me the light
it may be a chronic plight
but i'm ready for the fight
to live a beautiful life
thorns, warts, hogs and all
::thank you for showing me love:: 🥑🥑
te amo avo
guacamole cannoli can be extraordinary
jus don't get crazy wit da gravy
holy. moly.
i shoulda gon ez on the frijole
ya catch my whiff?
ya know what i bean?
lo siento por el overflow
the ancho de mi poblano
si no bueno.
i was totally out of lime
marinating takes time
the recipe was easy peasy
ingredients are you and me
and gravity makes three
a pinch of pepper
a dash of salt
jalapeño, serrano, sriracha
or whateva captcha grabs ya
we can always rearrange
when flavors become passé
the song remains the same
808s to keep you safe
frequencies so crisp
texture so rich
that when life adds
too much cilantro
our guac in the throe
of messico al fresco
i will hold fast
with tomatoes that last
baron avogadro
against the undertow
a stow of ripe avocado
like gnocchi on heaven's door
profiterole to keep us warm
in the eye of the storm.
⚓️ 🐻🐻
Before the risin' sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We'll start out walkin' and learn to run
And yes, we've bearly just begun 💗
This was waiting for me upon my return home from a highly successful business trip. My heart is overflowing with joy + happiness. I love my niece and nephews so much!
