Lo-Pan/Backwoods Payback Tour & Small Stone Records @ SXSW 2011

via Small Stone Records:

Newcomers to the Small Stone roster, Ohio fuzz geniuses Lo-Pan and low-down Eastern PA dirt-rockers Backwoods Payback are hitting road next month, flattening towns on their way to and through SXSW in Austin, TX. The two bands, no strangers to touring together, have plotted a course down the East Coast, across to Austin, where they’ll take place in the annual Small Stone SXSW Showcase, the back north through the Midwest on their way home.

Says Lo-Pan [guitarist Brian Fristoe], We’re stoked to be touring again with Backwoods Payback and can’t wait to get to Austin to show SXSW how the rock is done! We’re both proud to be under the Small Stone banner, and the lineup for their showcase is amazing. It’s going to be a blast!”

Lo-Pan’s Small Stone debut, “Salvador” has been garnering the band rave reviews and hits streets on May 24, and Backwoods Payback have are now recording their own first record for the Detroit label and are looking forward to a Fall 2011 release. In the meantime, both bands will be playing new material on this tour, so if you want a preview of the next generation of heavy rock and roll, now is the time!
