Larry And His Flask – on tour with Frank Turner & signs to Xtra Mile

By on April 15, 2013



Xtra Mile Recordings are proud and excited to announce the signing of the formidable Larry And His Flask to the label and give details of their forthcoming EP, tour and forthcoming new album.


We welcome the hirsute six-piece from Oregon, USA with open arms and already have plans to release their EP ‘Hobo’s Lament’ digitally on 22nd April 2013 with a limited numbered CD EP on 6th May.


Then in early June we will be giving their outstanding new full length album its worldwide release – more information on that coming very soon.


 Having toured together in the States, the Flask (as the band’s expanding army of fans calls them) come to the UK and Europe to support Frank Turner on his sold out album tour in April as well play a HUGE run of headline shows. Full list of dates over-leaf.


Formed by brothers Jamin and Jesse Marshall in 2003, the Flask spent its first half-decade stuck in a primordial, punk-rock goop, where a blood-sweat-and-beers live show took priority over things like notes and melodies. Don’t misunderstand: The band was (somewhat) skilled and an absolute joy to watch, but the goal was always the party over perfection.


More recently, however, Larry And His Flask have gone from crawl to sprint at breakneck speed. The band’s new songs are a blurry blend of lightning fast string-band picking, gorgeous nods to old-school country, and sublime multi-part harmonies, all presented through a prism of punk chaos. The shows are gloriously physical displays of live music’s sheer power. Keep your eyes peeled, or risk taking the heavy end of Jesse Marshall’s flailing, stand-up bass right between the eyes.


Managing Director of Xtra Mile Recordings Charlie Caplowe says: “Saw this lot in the States last year and was blown away by their frenetic mad bluegrass/punk. From that moment on I couldn’t wait to release their music on Xtra Mile and get them over to here to play. Go see. Go buy!


The band says: “We couldn’t be happier joining the Xtra Mile family.  We’ve held off releasing our music outside North America for far too long, waiting for the perfect fit.  We are sure that we found our match.”
