The Wreckless Strangers have been busy on the road this spring playing to new fans in the Pacific Northwest and Southern California. The band is excited to return home to the Bay Area, hit some Sierra mountain towns, and expand their tour further across the country to the East Coast over the next few months. From historic watering holes and outdoor festivals to free community celebrations and beer gardens to Zen barns, there are a variety of places to catch the Wreckless Strangers and their brand of “California Americana Soul” over the coming months.
Wreckless Strangers will be performing some fan favorites as well as new songs off their forthcoming album set to be released in the fall. The new album, produced by Dave Way, features the soulful ballads, barn-burning blues, and downright dirty rock ’n’ roll that characterize the live set while also delving into new emotional and stylistic terrain.
Fans can visit WrecklessStrangers.com and follow the band on social media to catch all of the latest updates.
