Longway To Tour With The Flatliners, Cobra Skulls, Broadway Calls

Over the last two years, Longway has gone from a regional hero, to an impressive addition to marquees across the nation. Among the highlights of the band's resume includes supporting runs with the likes of Bad Religion, The Briggs, Agent Orange, Horrorpops, Aggrolites, and consecutive treks on the Vans Warped Tour. This Spring, Longway will join three of punk rock's most promising prospects in The Flatliners, SideOne Dummy Records' recording artists Broadway Calls, and Cobra Skulls for a brief, albeit powerful, run of tour dates throughout the West Coast. Old Shoe Records, along with media partner Thrasher Magazine, along with Lucky 13 Apparel, have teamed up to present the string of West Coast dates. Aiming to provide a solid punk rock bill at a reasonable price, the club dates serve as a blueprint for future tours from the bands, labels, and companies involved.

From dive bars to the main stage, the Orange County punk rock ensemble Longway have established the kind of reputation long forgotten in the industry. Equipped with an unparalleled work ethic and the talent to justify their motivation, the sound is no frills punk rock and the scene is nothing less than incendiary. Linking up with Southern California punk label Old Shoe Records, Longway released their debut "Come ‘N Get It" to unanimous praise. Forging an appreciation for straight ahead rock music laced with punk rock swagger, the band's sound would not only generate a healthy following in Southern California, but as the band pounded the highways, Longway touched countless cities crafting their own niche all over the nation. The follow-up record would harness the momentum the band had built along the road.

Exploring the realities of life, love, and relationships as a working class collective of musicians, Longway's current album, "Junkie," is an impressive 12-track addition to Longway's already stellar catalog of work. Enlisting the guidance of famed producer Cameron Webb, Longway once again assumed the role of producer to create their best example of musical competence to date. A potent balance of energy and sincerity, tracks like "Rolling Wheels," "Honey" (featuring Patricia Day of Horrorpops), and the title track, "Junkie," serve as a reminder of an era of music that meshed poignant lyrics with incendiary instrumentation.
