LAKE TOUR DATES!
Those who adore sugary pop band LAKE have much to look forward to in the coming months as the band has just announced two new releases and a west coast tour. After spending the winter hibernating in the studio, LAKE will be supplied with plenty of new songs to play at their upcoming shows and will be selling a special tour only cassette as well. No other news about the upcoming releases but they are noted to be “distinctly different” which has us both intrigued and excited! (via Pop Press International)
