Ezekiel’s Wheels April tour

Ever since coming home from Amsterdam, Ezekiel’s Wheels has been busy booking more and more shows and recording a brand new full-length album. This past weekend we finished our third recording session down in Hingham (we’re being recorded by Ariel Bernstein down in Nat’s parents’ living room), and we’ve gotten about 60% of the album recorded. We’re going to take a little time to finish up our final arrangements for the remaining tunes for the album and head back to our ew_studioliving room studio towards the end of April or the beginning of May. Our goal is to have the whole thing pressed and released by the end of June.

In the meantime, as I’ve alluded to in some previous posts, we’re about to embark on a week-long tour of the southeast! Basically, we got hired to play at a big event in Montgomery, Alabama of all places and decided to tour down and back. It’s been a lot of work to book everything (and there’s still some final details to be ironed out), but we are atleast booked in every city on our route (and in the case of DC, we’re booked twice). It’s going to be a big adventure: 7 shows in 6 days and roughly 3,000 miles of driving to cover.

In honor of our odyssey, we even booked TWO tour kickoff shows:
