lemonheadshotelsessions The Lemonheads add 50 US tour dates, announce new LP: Hotel Sessions

It’s a good year for singer-songwriter Evan Dando. After a sold-out acoustic tour, alongside former bandmate Juliana Hatfield, Dando returns to the road once again with his old moniker, The Lemonheads. Performing their seminal 1992 LP, It’s a Shame About Ray, the Boston, MA trio – featuring Dando, now alongside guitarist Josh Lattanzi (of The Candles), and drummer Brian Nolan (of American Hi-Fi) - has sketched out a widely ambitious tour that takes them into 2012, with dates lined up everywhere across North America and the UK. What’s more, they plan on putting out an album in February.

But first, they’ll wrap up a handful of West coast gigs here, before shooting overseas for much of December. Starting early January, however, they’ll tour the States again, hitting up a different city every day for the next two-and-a-half months. New York’s The Shining Twins will offer support. Check out the jaw-dropping list of tour dates below.

Finally, on February 7th, The Lemonheads will issue Hotel Sessions (via Hall of Records/Breath of Saltwater), the group’s first album of original material since 2006’s eponymous LP. The new effort will feature 14-tracks that, according to a press release, come from “an intimate recording documenting a Sunday night that Evan Dando spent recording new songs with just an acoustic guitar (and some revealing commentary) in a hotel room in Bondi Beach, Australia.” Some tracks include those that never made it on past releases.

We’ll keep you updated.
