The band will be joined by Maryland's Admiral Browning.

Said guitarist/vocalist Mike Cummings of the impending journey: "The 18 date run serves as a prelude to our much anticipated Small Stone Records debut, to be released late Summer/early Fall.

Backwoods Payback Cancels Upcoming Live Shows

Pennsylvania stoner/doom rockers Backwoods Payback, who are slated to kick off their tour with label mates Lo Pan tomorrow, have been forced to pull out of much of the trek due to a medical emergency. The band will play the first four shows of the tour but will be unable to continue past March 12.

Said guitarist/vocalist Mike Cummings in an official statement: "It is with heavy hearts that we are forced to drop off our tour to and from SXSW with our brothers Lo Pan, but due to a serious medical emergency we will be unable to continue past March 12. We are deeply sorry to be missing these shows and the hang sessions that always follow. Seems like the motto has never rang more true than now......we drop out to live."

Backwoods Payback Announces U.S. Dates

Pennsylvania stoner/doom rockers Backwoods Payback has announced a 17-date U.S. tour next month with labe lmates Lo Pan. The loudness will begin March 9th in Baltimore, Maryland and will include two appearances as part of this year's SXSW music conference in Austin, Texas. Backwoods Payback will be touring in support of the band's Small Stone Recordings debut, which is set for release later this spring.

Comments guitarist/vocalist Mike Cummings of the new record and upcoming dates: "The new, as yet untitled, record is dark and ugly, but smooth in all the right places. I think live is where these songs are going to hit the hardest. We've been doing this for long enough that each stop on a tour isn't just a show anymore. It's a full blown party; a gathering of friends old and new. This tour should be no different, save for the fact that now we are flying the Small Stone flag, and are stoked to be doing so!"
