Recently reunited Pedro the Lion announce 2018 tour

0

Pedro the Lion have officially reunited, and will be touring all over North America starting in 2018. The beloved Seattle rock band dissolved in 2006 when lead singer and multi-instrumentalist Dave Bazan decided to go solo, effectively dissolving a group that revolved around his personality and songwriting.

After touring for 11 years under his own name, Bazan has decided he’s ready to play music with other people again. On his website, Bazan commented on the things that led to the reformation of Pedro the Lion:

“I missed the energy of making music with other people on stage and constantly traveling alone was starting to really sting. I needed to be in a band again.”

Pedro the Lion was originally formed in 1995, and put out a string of well-regarded albums, including “It’s Hard to Find a Friend” and “Winner’s Never Quit.” At first, Bazan played nearly every instrument on the recordings, but would go on to work and tour with others on subsequent releases. The band would tour with a rotating cast of members, including such notable figures as Ben Gibbard (from Death Cab for Cutie) and Christian Wargo, who would go on to join Fleet Foxes.

Pedro the Lion would go on to become a staple of Pacific Northwest music, and their presence in the music scene has been missed. Fans of the band from all over the country can now get excited about a chance to see them again in 2018, in a tour that will take them all over the U.S. and into parts of Canada.

Here’s a look at Pedro the Lion’s February tour. For dates after that, check out the band’s  website.
