lespecial will get with the Odd Times and head out on a fall tour in support of the band’s upcoming album of the same name. The 20-city trek from the progtronic trio includes dates with support from TandLITZDizgo, and others.

Following previously announced festival appearances at the band’s own Le Getaway Part IV and Suwannee Hulaween, the tour begins in earnest on November 9th in Charlotte. Tand is on board for the first four dates in North Carolina and Georgia, with Potch pitching in on a few dates, before LITZ tags in for a four-show run of its own beginning November 15th in Virginia Beach. In the Midwest, Dizgo takes a few turns opening at shows in Detroit, Columbus, and Peoria, IL. The back half of the tour sees a rotating cast supporting artists including Grub, Vibe & DirectStrange MachinesPushing Daisies Band, and Doom Flamingo, before lespecial lands in Chicago to support Umphrey’s McGee during its two-night New Year’s Eve run at the Riviera Theatre.

Out September 29th, Odd Times marks the fourth studio album for the steadily rising trio of guitarist Jonny Grusauskas, bassist Luke Bemand, and drummer Rory Dolan, friends and bandmates since high school. The band offered its initial preview of the album last month with the seven-minute environmental epic “Lungs of the Planet“.

Odd Times is our darkest, heaviest record to date. Yet, within that darkness there is light and levity to be found,” Grusauskas said. “Our first single, ‘Lungs of the Planet’ is a call to mobilize our thoughts and actions, to prioritize the conservation of natural systems, to take example from the symbiosis of mycelial networks in our forests, and use them to realize a world of balance. To live in harmony with it, not at odds with it. Nature can be brutal, nature can be metal, but humanity also has the ingenuity to find peace and stasis, and to use our resources for good, rather than militarization. Its double kick thrash riffs are simultaneously an angry battle cry and a hopeful declaration that homo-sapiens can be better.”
