Daddy Long Legs Announce Fall U.S. Tour, LOWDOWN WAYS Out Now

Critically lauded Brooklyn-based trio DADDY LONG LEGS will continue touring in support of their third studio album, Lowdown Ways, with an 18-city fall U.S. tour. Beginning in their hometown September 1, the tour will make stops throughout the Southeast and the West Coast. Prior to the trio's second U.S. tour, they will embark on a run of festival dates in Europe. A full list of dates is below.

Produced by Jimmy Sutton and engineered by Alex Hall (JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge) at Hi-Style Studios in Chicago, the album debuted at #4 on Billboard's Blues Album Chart and #10 on the Alternative New Albums chart. The album features 12 original compositions with songwriting contributions from JD McPherson and Sutton.

Delivering "scorching, sweaty, stomping, bluesy rock n' roll" (Brooklyn Vegan), DADDY LONG LEGS is fronted by harmonica-blowin' Brian Hurd and rounded out with Murat Akturk (slide guitar) and Josh Styles (drums, maraca).

Leading up to the album's release, Rolling Stone Country named "Glad Rag Ball" one of the '10 Best Country, Americana Songs of the Week', citing "it's all guttural hollering and foot-stomping rhythms." Brooklyn Vegan premiered the official video for "Pink Lemonade," co-written with JD McPherson and WFMU "Mornin' Noon & Nite".

Since forming in 2010, the band has released two studio albums, a live album and two 45s on Norton Records. Their last album was 2015's Rides Tonight. They have toured with Jon Spencer, Hurray For The Riff Raff, The Sonics, Nikki Lane, Nick Waterhouse, amongst others.
