LOST DOG STREET BAND: Kentucky Dark Country Act Announces Winter Tour with Pensacola Stop

Muhlenberg County, Kentucky-based dark country outfit LOST DOG STREET BAND has just announced a widespread run of US tour dates for early next year, continuing to support of their acclaimed fifth album, Weight Of A Trigger.

LOST DOG STREET BAND is the creation of guitarist, vocalist, and primary songwriter, Benjamin Tod. Following its release through Anti-Corporate Music in March of 2019, the Weight Of A Trigger LP hit #5 on the Billboard Bluegrass charts, remaining charted for more than a month. This accomplishment was achieved through the band’s hard work, their diehard fanbase, and the DIY works of the small label’s team. The band also traversed the country for several months preceding and subsequent to its release.

While taking some time off the road for the last few months of the year, as guitarist/vocalist Benjamin Tod promotes his new solo LP A Heart Of Gold Is Hard To Find, LOST DOG STREET BAND is already preparing to head back out next year, this week announcing their Winter Tour 2020. Beginning January 27th in Knoxville, the tour runs through April 2nd, ending in Asheville. The tour will play through forty-one cities across the eastern half of the country and will see the band supported by their friend Casper Allen, who is currently out on tour with LOST DOG STREET BAND’s labelmate Matt Heckler.

LOST DOG STREET BAND‘s Weight Of A Trigger is a portal into when Americana was peopled by sensitive outlaws who pleaded for salvation in song; a potent distillation of its outlaw heartache soul. The ten-song collection spans old-time music, Appalachian folk, redemptive country blues, and winsome balladry. Each song is elegantly essential, using teardrop pedal steel guitar, delicate fingerpicked passages, emotive harmony vocals, and stately violin touches as delicate dynamic touches. The members’ influences of Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt, Doc Watson, Devil Makes Three, Tyler Childers, Hooray For The Riff Raff, Sarah Shook & The Disarmers, Arlo McKinley, and more shine through the band’s emotional lyrics and infectious hooks.
