Chicago’s The Last Vegas have scheduled a handful of headlining dates in support of their 6th studio album, Eat Me, which was released exclusively through AFM Records Germany on March 18. Additionally, the band have announced dates in Germany, opening for The Quireboys, this November. View all dates below.

The songs on Eat Me are a mash-up of full-tilt boogie rock, droney Zeppelin-esque riffs and alt-psychedelic acoustic ballads. Equal part American blues riffs and Swedish production technique, the album balances both grit and polish. Guitarist Adam Arling comments, “This is truly an American hybrid album.”

Eat Me was recorded in near lightning pace, which worked in the band’s favor as they adopted a “first-thought, best-thought, only-thought” approach.

“We gathered some favorite demos lying around, added a few fresh ideas and rehearsed the hell out of the songs for about 8 days,” says singer Chad Cherry. “We were tracking vocals up through the night I left for LA. We recorded like 12 songs in about 11 hours at Groovemaster, and it felt like we were making our first album again. It was awesome.”

Eat Me marks the first time The Last Vegas have collaborated with a European production team (Sweden’s Grammy-nominated Classe Persson is mastering). Having been long-time fans of Scandinavian rock production and influenced by records from The Hellacopters, Turbnonegro, Nomads and more, The Last Vegas were thrilled with a new approach in making a modern-day album and the results of the inter-continental experiment.

“There’s a lot of feeling in this record. It’s fascinating what you can express musically when you record songs quickly, never second-guessing your gut instinct. We found the soul in rock’n’roll; from both Chicago and Stockholm” says Adam Arling. “But let’s not get too serious, I mean the album is called ‘Eat Me’ after all. Catch you on tour in 2016.”
