Boston-based indie rock band The Big Lonesome are happy to announce they are hitting the road for a short east coast tour this fall. The tour will kick off in Charlotte, and end in Nashville.
They are touring in support of their newest EP, Fascination, which is available now. You can stream the new EP below.
Originally started as a solo project by Chad Gosselin (guitar/vocals) in 2009, Boston band The Big Lonesome has grown over the years to become a four-piece tapestry of shoegazey indie rock with a sensibility for pop. Gosselin’s lyrics explore a wide range of topics from an awkward encounter of running into an old fling while buying kale at the supermarket (“What the Hell Am I Supposed to Do?”) to attending the final show at iconic T.T. the Bear’s Place in Cambridge, MA before it closed in 2015 (“Everytown, USA”). Brother Luke Gosselin (guitar/lap steel/vocals), Seth Kellogg (bass) and Nate Jones (drums/percussion) join Chad to perform music that has been described as “The Rolling Stones covering Sonic Youth” and has drawn comparisons to Guided by Voices and early Wilco.
