For the better part of the past five years, Ohio fuzz rockers Lo-Pan have been on tour in support of their 2009 sophomore outing, Sasquanout, and 2011’s Salvador, turning them into one of the underground’s hardest touring bands.
Salvador was a pinnacle for Lo-Pan‘s blend of their 70s rock heritage shot through with 80s metal fire, a fluid groove, and soulful vocals, pushing the band beyond the confines of the stoner rock genre.
Hot on the heels of the their forthcoming album, Colossus – the band’s fourth overall and second full-length for Detroit’s Small Stone Records – Lo-Pan will kick a good deal of ass at the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival on Sunday, April 12th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
Colossus marks a meaner, more precise Lo-Pan with the band a tighter and more efficient-sounding unit than they’ve ever been, delivering big songs, smooth-running riffs, a more spacious feeling in Jeff Martin‘s powerful voice, and drummer J Bartz ever-raucous stomp.
With the release of Colossus, Lo-Pan have upped the ante for many of their contemporaries. Don’t miss them at Roadburn, you’ll be sorry for missing all of Lo-Pan‘s riffy glory!
“Lo-Pan is honored to be invited to perform at the prestigous Roadburn Festival 2015.”, says J Bartz, “We are looking forward to making life long memories and friends.”
Roadburn Festival 2015 will run for four days from Thursday, April 9 to Sunday, April 12 at the 013 venue in Tilburg, The Netherlands.
