A message from SLOTHRUST...
"Hello hello! Slothrust is going on a 5-week tour to promote our first full-length record, Feels Your Pain. And we are kicking off TODAY (yesterday). This tour is appropriately titled, the RAV4 TOUR because that is the vehicle we are driving on this excursion! It shall be a tight squeeze, but we love to play so we are making this happen! We are playing 24 shows in 20 different cities over the course of 40 days. Here we go.
You can support us on our tour by purchasing our album HERE! This money will go right to gas and food.
If you have already purchased our record and are the kindest person ever and feel like further supporting us, you are cordially invited to send gas/food money via paypal to Leahwellbaum@gmail.com. Anything at all is seriously helpful. This money will also go directly to gas and food and staying alive.
For your viewing / reading / listening pleasure, we have launched a tour blog. We will be uploading footage of bathrooms we use, shows we play, people we meet, things we do.
Our Los Angeles date just got cancelled due to a venue construction issue (yikes!) and we are desperately trying to pick up another date! If you or someone you know can help us get a show in Los Angeles in the time range of July 11-13, please get in touch. We are down for bars, venues, houses parties, grandma's houses, afternoon BBQs, salons, toy stores, pharmacies, parking lots, whatever.
