Funk/reggae act Lionize has just announced that they will soon be heading out on a pretty extensive Spring tour of the US.
Here’s what Lionize vocalist/guitarist Nate Bergman had to say about the other bands and the tour itself,
The majority of the tour is with Fair to Midland and Dead Letter Circus – They are both very progressive bands that are pushing the envelope musically, so that’s exciting for us. I think that’s the world we thrive in… We break off in the middle of the tour to go play in Philly and DC with Bad Brains and GZA. That might be a dream bill for us if we ever had one.” Lionize will also be headlining several shows along the way in what Bergman refers to as “some of our favorite cities in the country, to play a long set for people who’ve been waiting for us to get back there.
Lionize will be on tour until May; view complete tour date and location information here.
Lionize’s most recent work, “Superczar and the Vulture”, was released last December through Pentimento Music Company.
