Look Mexico Announce Album and Tour Dates
To Bed To Battle was written and recorded this past summer in Look Mexico's former hometown of Tallahassee, FL. With the converted basement of a local pizza shop dedicated as their studio space, the band was able to take their time throughout the recording process, experimenting with and expanding their sound, and adding new instrumentation such as electric piano, organ, pedal steel, violin, cello, and horns.
The resulting album - which deals with struggle and pressing on in the face of adversity - is an incredibly catchy, diverse yet cohesive set of ten songs. To Bed To Battle ranges musically from anthemic pop/rock and explosive ballads ("You Stay. I Go. No Following," "Until The Lights Burn Out?"), to alternately edgy and dreamy math-rock ("No Wonder I'm Still Awake," "Time For You To Go Do Your Own Thing"), to blistering, barreling modern rock ("I Live My Life A Quarter Mile At A Time," "They Offered Me A Deal (I Said No, Naturally"), and even acoustic, chamber pop-laced Americana ("Take It Upstairs, Einstein").
Look Mexico, known for their relentless touring after having spent at least half of the past five years since the band's 2004 inception on the road, will also play a few shows in late February and early March in anticipation of the release of To Bed To Battle. The band's current itinerary - which begins February 21st in their new hometown of Austin, TX - is below and more touring news will be announced soon.
