Curse of Lono Announce Europe Tour Dates with Chuck Prophet


‘Send For The Whisky’ is the new single from Curse Of Lono, impacting on October 27th on Submarine Cat
Records. The single is accompanied by a video directed by Shane Davey and shot in east London’s
Wilton’s Music Hall, the world’s oldest surviving grand music hall. Watch the video here:

 

‘Send For The Whisky’ is lifted from Curse Of Lono’s critically acclaimed debut album ‘Severed’. A
sumptuously cinematic record, ‘Severed’ was produced at London’s Gun Factory Studios by Oli Bayston
(Boxed In). The album has received an incredible response internationally, most notably in the UK, US,
Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Belgium, Spain, Ireland and across Scandinavia.
‘Severed’ follows Curse Of Lono’s self-titled debut EP, released last October, which also formed the
soundtrack to ‘Saturday Night’, a short film of inter-connected music videos directed by Alex Walker. The
film recently won Best Music Video at the LA Independent Film Awards, the London Independent Film
Awards and Feel The Reel International Film Festival in Glasgow and has made the official selection at the
International Music Video Underground in LA and the Sunlight International Film Festival in Moscow. Watch

Founded and fronted by Felix Bechtolsheimer, formerly the singer-guitarist in British roots pioneers Hey
Negrita, Curse Of Lono formed in early 2015, though the songs on ‘Severed’ were written over a 14-year
period. The album belongs as much to the Americana tradition and old faithfuls such as Little Feat as it
does to more modern, playful practitioners of the form such as Wilco and Beck. Lyrically, the songs cover
themes including infidelity and sexual jealousy, the death of friends, and Felix’s personal struggle with
heroin addiction.
On release in April, ‘Severed’ entered the NACC Top 200 College Radio Chart in the US and Canada at No.
168 ahead of artists like Elbow, Feist, Strand Of Oaks, Brian Jonestown Massacre and Julia Holter, and
peaked at No. 101 on the Muzooka College Radio Chart.
The album also caught the attention of several music supervisors and the track ‘Don’t Look Down’ recently
featured in the season finale of the US TV drama ‘Kingdom.

 

Following 3 consecutive sold out gigs in London, and performances at The Great Escape, Camden Rocks,
Isle Of Wight Festival, Maverick Festival, Wychwood Festival, SummerTyne Festival, Standon Calling and
Y Not Festival, Curse Of Lono will be heading out on a number of UK and European tours this autumn.
