The band has also released a limited re-press of the debut album "Owl" just in time for the tour. You can buy the release via Bandcamp or stream the tracks below. The band also issued the following biography:

"Owl was originally hatched in 2007, when the youngest Baechle brother, Axell, sprang from an egg (aged 13 years already and with a Gibson Les Paul in his hands) and began to compose original songs in the style of classic heavy metal (BlackZeppelinBudgieLizzyMotorVenomRamones). The middle brother Alex, disturbed from his book by the noise, soon decided to join in, adding his supernatural songwriting, composition and vocal skills to the mix. The Holy Trinity finally came together at Christmas 2009, when oldest brother Clint was summoned away from a three month tour with some other band.

"The trio met at the Baechle family mountain aerie, high in the Sierra Mountains, and the demo tape was recorded (Clint on drums). The demo was circulated, with some critical acclaim, and much curiosity as to the real age and relationship of the band members.

"Unable to procure a fourth sibling to complete the lineup of the band, the brothers adopted an African child named Melanie to be their bass player and sister in March of 2011. The Stone Loner seven inch was recorded soon after. The band picked up steam, playing gigs around the Bay Area, and lumbering drunkenly up the West Coast for the first time in August 2011.

"The Stone Loner seven inch finally came out (as a split label release with band’s own Magick Hermit Records, and Tombs In The Valley productions from Newcastle, UK.) in February 2012. This was followed by a second West Coast tour. The band continued to ravage the Bay Area throughout the Spring and Summer of 2012, building a reputation as a formidable live act. The first LP (a split label release with Magick Hermit and Lummox records) was released in limited quantity in November 2012, on the eve of the band’s first US tour, which carried them to the East coast and back, through an onslaught of crazy gigs (and crazy weather). 2013 looks to be an even busier year, with many more releases and tours planned."
