Las Vegas indie rockers Caravels have announced dates for a summer tour that kicks off with a hometown show on May 8. The tour runs through June 3rd and includes dates with Octaves, Frameworks, Old Gray and I Will Kill Giants. The band will make an appearance at Bledfest in Howell, MI on May 25 joining such acts as Anti-Flag, Andrew W.K., Pianos Become The Teeth and many more (http://bledfest.com/).

The band will be out in support of their recently released Topshelf Records debut LP, Lacuna, which has been racking up raves reviews. Lacuna was live tracked at Palms Studios in Las Vegas, NV with engineer Robert Katz (Death Cab For Cutie, Goo Goo Dolls, The Offspring).

What others are saying about Caravels’ Lacuna:

“…intricate guitar work…brooding melodies and powerful climaxes…… near-perfection. Caravels are on the cusp of something great and I think Lacuna will expedite their progress. …one of the best for the year thus far.”- Punknews

“Lacuna is an album made by a band that’s taken the time to hone its songwriting and define its creative focus. While certainly energetic—the band recorded all 10 songs live, during a marathon overnight studio session—the record is also meticulous, arranged to maximize dynamic contrast and emotional impact. … bear a passing resemblance to The Cure circa Pornography. Dense in all the right ways—and challenging to absorb—Lacuna stands tall among its peers.”- Las Vegas Weekly

“The album plays through like a high-definition version of the live show, instilling that same bump of adrenaline…”- Las Vegas City Life

“When Caravels are locked into off-kilter emo jams such as ‘Hundred Years’ sounding like an indie rock-infused Hoover, it doesn’t get much better.”- Alternative Press
