Athens rock band Lullwater has announced that they will be supporting Passafire on their upcoming tour beginning this Wednesday, March 19th. The group released their newest self-titled release back in September via their own label Dinobird. The Passafire tour will last through April 19th, and Lullwater says that they plan to keep touring for the majority of the year so there should be plenty more opportunities for fans across the country to catch them. If you haven’t heard these guys yet, check out the track “Albatross” below. It’s the type of song that has some immediate hooks and is reminiscent of some of the best grunge/hard rock from the 90s without sounding like a mere retread. Additional details and the full list of tour dates are below.

Athens, GA — Lullwater has announced a run with Passafire that will take the band through the Southeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest and Northeast with direct support billing. The excursion will allow for the quartet to segue from their current itinerary with RA straight on to this additional leg on March 19th in Tallahassee, FL. A home town show at Cutter’s in Athens, GA (3/15) and a festival appearance in Savannah, GA (River Front Fest / 3/16) will be staged in between to two support excursions. Singer and guitarist John Strickland offers, “We couldn’t be more excited to be part of these tours. Being able to support two headlining acts, which we are personal fans of, adds a great dynamic to the tours. I also think it says a lot about the diversity of Lullwater’s music and our ability to fit on both bills. Being direct support for Passafire is extremely exciting for us. We are really looking forward to warming up the crowd and catching their set every night.”

For the last several years, the Athens-based quartet has logged countless miles on the highways of the U.S., building an active audience that grows exponentially on an annual basis. The band is exhibiting they are serious about their prior announcement they plan to commit the majority of 2014 to touring, aiming to make 200 or more appearances mixed between headlining and support plays.

Lullwater recently released their self-titled album on their own Dinobird label. Recorded and produced at London Bridge Studios, Seattle WA (Pearl Jam 10, Soundgarden Louder Than Love), the September 17th offering has seen strong sales and critical acclaim from journalists and industry tastemakers. Lullwater is a band that offers the convictions of passion, honesty, drive, and perseverance. Through integrity, diligence and what is nothing more than a pure connection with those they encounter, the band is reaching the heights of developing a national presence. This raw, thought provoking rock has placed them on that cusp of garnering that elusive coast to coast notoriety. The band members are John Strickland (Lead Vocals / Rhythm Guitar), Brett Strickland (Lead Guitar), Roy “Ray” Beatty (Bass) and Joe Wilson (Drums).
