The Fresh & Onlys only tour west of the Mississippi in respect for their heroes, Lewis and Clark

Always happy to survey the still-unexplored wild country of the US west of the Mississippi, The Fresh & Onlys have announced a tour of the western US in support of their recent Secret Walls EP on Sacred Bones. The band has offered up this official statement: “In reverence and respect to our heroes, Meriwether Lancelot Lewis and William Peabody Clark — Lewis & Clark to the layman — we will be celebrating their great Expedition of the Lousiana Purchase, completed a mere 205 years ago, by performing on a 16-date tour.”

The band goes on to promise that, just like L & C, they will be “canoeing from gig to gig,” “surviving on hunted and foraged food,” and “will only seek directions and advice from local Native Americans and the secret population of French fur-trappers who survive, removed from the progress of society, in Colorado’s hidden Paradise Valley of the Ancients.”

The band has also announced that, following their summer expedition, they will next honor their hero Hulk Hogan by ripping their shirts in unison as they “Hulk Up” amid joyful cheers from their fans.
