LO-PAN Winter Tour Dates Announced

Small Stone Records announces LO-PAN Winter tour and release of remixed and remastered album, 'Sasquanaut', for January 25, 2011. Go here for all tourdates.

LO-PAN formed in 2005. The band is based in Columbus, OH and recently signed to Small Stone Records. Press praises the band's efforts to date. Hellride music enthuses "…vast, psychedelic texturing, a powerhouse tone in all instruments and a gripping crooner…" StonerRock.com notes "It's refreshing to hear a rock band that balances a harder edge with some classic, soaring vocals." Columbus Alive warns "Lo-Pan doesn't use quite as many amps anymore, but it would still be wise to wear earplugs [to their shows]." Nashville Scene sums it up stating "Lo-Pan place greater emphasis on the classic rock influence, eschewing the harsher vocals of many of their contemporaries for a sound more akin to Josh Homme's Kyuss/Queens of the Stone Age canon."

LO-PAN is Brian Fristoe on guitar; Jesse Bartz on drums; Jeff Martin on vocals; Skot Thompson on bass. The eight tracks on 'Sasquanaut' are:

1. Dragline

2. Savage Henry

3. Kurtz

4. Callahan

5. Kramer

6. Vega

7. Vego

8. Wade Garrett
