Locksley Announce Spring Tour with Butch Walker

.
Locksley will head out on the road this spring with Butch Walker in support of their March 16, 2010 release, Be In Love (Feature Records). Locksley will begin their trek when they play Sunfest on April 28, 2010 in West Palm Beach, FL. The spring 2010 tour with Butch Walker kicks off on May 4, 2010 in Omaha, NE.

Locksley features brothers Jesse and Jordan Laz (rhythm guitar and bass respectively), Kai Kennedy (lead guitar) and Sam Bair (drums). Be In Love finds the band exploring their American musical roots with bits of Swing, 50's Doo-Wop, 60's Soul and early American-Punk all coming together to create something uniquely and confidently their own.

Rock and Roll legend Ray Davies commented on the album: "I got to know the guys in Locksley last year when they served as my backing band for my U.S. tour. I just heard their album Be In Love and I was reminded why I loved these guys in the first place."

The band's second single from the album: "The Whip" was recently heralded by Marie Claire as: "College-rock guitar pop so gleefully infectious, the urge to shout along...can't be ignored."

"We've broadened and narrowed our outlook on this album" Jesse remarked. "We added a third vocalist and songwriter in Jordan, which was big and we were listening to and pulling from a larger variety of music than before. At the same time, we cut a lot of fat in our parts and tightened up the arrangements quite a bit so the album ends up feeling more focused than the last one, even though it's spread out over more voices."

Locksley has achieved rare success for an unsigned act with performances on Late Night with Conan O'Brien and Jimmy Kimmel Live, a feature as MTV's Artist of the Week for an unprecedented two consecutive weeks and a tour as the opener and backing band for the legendary Kinks front-man Ray Davies.

The band's music has been heavily licensed, appearing in movies (Cloverfield, Friday the 13th, Over Her Dead Body), TV (theme song for Morning Express with Robin Meade on CNN, Parenthood and Mercy on NBC, Cougar Town, Castle, and Cupid on ABC), numerous commercials (Garnier, AT&T, Starz, Payless Shoes) and video games (RockBand features three of their songs).
