La Rocca News
One of my favorite new bands of 2006 was Ireland's La Rocca. The band released the excellent The Truth LP on Dangerbird Records, did a few gigs around the U.S., and then quickly proceeded to disappear off the face of the Earth.
Well, there's good news. Not only is the band still around, but they've got a new album coming out called Ok Okay, and they'll be touring across the U.S. this summer. They even have two advance tracks ("Love Under Key" and "Roadway Hymn") available for download over at iTunes.
I haven't seen a CD release date yet, or a full set of U.S. dates, but they do have 5 shows scheduled on the West Coast next month. If you can make it to the shows, I recommend that you do - the boys put on an excellent live show.
La Rocca West Coast Tour Dates
5/13: San Diego (House of Blues)
5/14: Los Angeles (Roxy)
5/16: Reno, NV (Club Underground)
5/17: Sacramento (Boardwalk)
5/19: Modesto (Fat Cat)
Just a thought, fellas, but I think DC9 or the Red and the Black would be excellent options for a DC show...
