Lothario Loses!

That’s right. We came in dead last last night. We had the biggest crowd, by almost ALL accounts the best set by far, we were the only band that followed all the rules, and we lost the Klash of the Bands / Klash Drums Band Battle. We never saw the final scores for any of the bands.
But no worries — we had a lot of fun and rocked a house full of our people in my hometown of NE Minneapolis. Thanks so much to those of you who came out. I just wish you wouldn’t have wasted your money on that cover that we saw none of.
I hope Klash and the other sponsors of this event were present last night and at the other nights so they can see the “value” they’re getting for their investment.
Congratulations to the winners. They played… Well, they played.

Just a quick heads-up that we have two shows coming up in the next couple of months. We’re still waiting for all of the details but we’ve got The Red Sea booked on Saturday, September 29th with True Concept and probably one other yet-to-be-named emcee, and we will also be playing a special show at the The Northeast Palace with King Tuesday and probably a few other bands on Friday, November 2nd.

Lothario EP Tornado Free Recordings Now Streaming at lotharioband.com!

The Official Tornado Free Recordings Album Cover

Lothario is happy to announce that our long awaited EP Tornado Free Recordings is now available to stream right here on our music player, as well as at our ReverbNation Page. You can click the Music Player link to your right, or call it up anywhere at any time using this URL: www.lotharioband.com/music_player.html.

Here’s the story behind this project and how we ended up with the name Tornado Free Recordings:
The album is titled Tornado Free Recordings because May 22nd, 2011 was the day that we started recording this project and was also the day that the tornado crossed the northside of Minneapolis last spring. In addition to this freak weather event bringing an abrupt halt to our recording session as CJ and I rushed home to see if our houses were damaged, all of the work we had done that day was no good because of a mic clip that was rattling in the drums and we had to start all over. My house was okay, but CJ’s was a total loss. So while he dealt with insurance companies and estimators and finding a new temporary home we all got back at it and finished re-recording these songs last fall. We came up with the name Tornado Free Recordings as both a tribute to or friends, relatives, and neighbors who lost so much in the storm, and also as kind of a “fuck you” to the storm that completely altered our plans for this release.
As things unfolded, CJ ended up moving out of state to be closer to his family, and so these recordings mean that much more to Lothario now, as they may be the last ones that the five of us record together for quite some time. The four of us that are still living in the Twin Cities are currently working on some new material, and hope to start recording Lothario’s first full length studio album this fall.

Look for this album to be available for digital only purchase at your favorite online retailers in the coming weeks, and we’ll have physical copies of the CD available for purchase at shows in the next couple of months.

And you can preview all of the album artwork here: www.lotharioband.com/album-art/.

Also a quick note that we’ll be playing the Larrypalooza Music Festival in Clear Lake Wisconsin (that’s LARRY, not LALA) on August 25th. Watch for an official announcement about that in the coming days…

Lothario. Listen Responsibly
