Oregon’s LARRY AND HIS FLASK have announced that they will release long-awaited new material in the form of a brand new EP, HOBO’S LAMENT, which drops on September 25, 2012 on Paper + Plastick Records. The EP’s first track, “Closed Doors” premiered today on American Songwriter and can be heard at
For the unintiated, 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.” Time Out Chicago says, “On paper Larry and His Flask are awesome – but the band remains that awesome in person.” Originally conceived as a four piece punk band, the group has swelled into a fully realized sextet 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.
