CRAZY ARM MAY 2014 UK AND EUROPEAN TOUR WITH LARRY AND HIS FLASK

Devon roots-punks, Crazy Arm, head out on tour with Oregon punk-grass quintet, Larry & His Flask, this month, taking in UK and mainland Europe dates with a couple of headliners for good measure.

The tour starts at Groezrock festival in Belgium - one of the major punk festivals of the year - comes back to the UK for a week and then heads across to the mainland again for a final fling with the Flask.

The band will be doing combo shows, combining the acoustic-roots songs from their latest album, The Southern Wild, with their trademark Bad-Religion-meets-Baroness-meets-Wovenhand-meets-Jethro-Tull rock onslaught.

All Crazy Arm dates are below.

LARRY AND HIS FLASK RETURN TO UK AND EUROPE IN MAY

Taking a break from the constant touring of their homeland for a month, the inimitable Larry and His Flask will be storming across the UK and mainland Europe, flooding the land with nothing but furious shanties and non-stop dancing.

 A much-needed burst of joy for our continent, these five Oregon natives look to spread their frenetic homespun bluegrass and anarchic rock even further than ever. Five albums on, including last year's stupendous By the Lamplight released by Xtra Mile Recordings, every song is imbued with infectious energy, seething through every raucous note. You don't even have to know the words; you'll just know you'll want to join in.

Label mates Crazy Arm join them for a number of the May dates. The politically-driven, fiddle-toting folk punk group have just finished their European tour in support of third album, 'The Southern Wild' released last year on Xtra Mile. They're all set to complement the rousing celebratory atmosphere with strident melodies, strong words, and robust hearts.

For those unlucky enough not to have experienced them before, Larry and His Flask make music that lies somewhere between a barn raising and a mosh pit. The New York Times calls them "uncommonly joyous" and "deviously astute", while their live show is a "breathless, polymorphous good time." Originally conceived as a four piece punk band, the group has swelled into a fully realized line-up with strong Americana influences complete with stand-up bass, mandolin and banjo. Their live act is not to be missed - unlike any other band playing music today, Larry and His Flask truly incorporate their audiences into each show, connecting to create an experience that converts everyone into fans and permeates the border between performer and spectator. Performances see members careening wildly across the stage with instruments, narrowly avoiding harrowing collisions amongst themselves and frequently trading said instruments mid-song while still maintaining pitch-perfect 4-part harmonies.

There is so much verve and spirit on display, not to mention clever songwriting, which sees them weave moving, intriguing and entertaining stories through their heartfelt music. And if they are half as exciting live as they are on record, Larry And His Flask are a special entity indeed.” – 4 out of 5 review in Alternative Press

As expected and hoped for, we’re treated to more lashings of old time country tropes reconfigured through the equalizing lends of punk rock. It’s truly riveting stuff…” - 9 out of 10 review in Rock Sound (UK)

They are currently winning over the hearts and minds of UK and Europe as they’re rip it up on tour with Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls as well as playing a HUGE run of headline shows. Converts are coming in thick and fast. Full list of dates over-leaf. They will return to the US for a full North American Tour that sees them criss-crossing the country non-stop until September. 

For the uninitiated, Larry and His Flask make music that lies somewhere between a barn raising and a mosh pit. The New York Times calls them "uncommonly joyous" and "deviously astute", while their live show is a "breathless, polymorphous good time."

Originally conceived as a four piece punk band, the group has swelled into a fully realized quintet with strong Americana influences complete with stand-up bass, mandolin and banjo. Their live act is not to be missed - unlike any other band playing music today, Larry and His Flask truly incorporate their audiences into each show, connecting to create an experience that converts everyone into fans and permeates the border between performer and spectator.

Performances see members careening wildly across the stage with instruments, narrowly avoiding harrowing collisions amongst themselves and frequently trading said instruments mid-song while still maintaining pitch-perfect 4-part harmonies. 

XMTV were on hand at their London Forum show to film a short intro:

 

Larry and His Flask are:

Jamin Marshall (drums, vocals), Jesse Marshall (bass), Ian Cook (vocals, guitar), Dallin Bulkley (guitar) and Andrew Carew (banjo) and Kirk Skatvold (mandolin).

Managing Director of Xtra Mile Recordings Charlie Caplowe says:

“Saw this lot in the States last year and was blown away by their frenetic mad bluegrass/punk. From that moment on I couldn’t wait to release their music on Xtra Mile and get them over to here to play. Go see. Go buy!” 

The band says:

“We couldn’t be happier joining the Xtra Mile family.  We’ve held off releasing our music outside North America for far too long, waiting for the perfect fit.  We are sure that we found our match.”
