ALLAH-LAS ADD SELECT SUMMER TOUR DATES IN CALIFORNIA
CALICO REVIEW OUT TO CRITICAL ACCLAIM ON MEXICAN SUMMER
Allah-Las confirm new California tour dates in June to follow performances at Coachella and their headlining Australian tour. The select summer shows mark a continuation of the band’s 2017 North American tour in support of their critically acclaimed album, Calico Review (out now on Mexican Summer). See below for a full tour itinerary.
Calico Review was recorded in Los Angeles’ historic Valentine Recording Studio. For the album, Allah-Las experiment with new instrumentation adding violin, harpsichord and Mellotron to their sound. The twelve tracks on Calico Review demonstrate how the group has pivoted from focusing on specific influences to crafting songs that reflect their own feelings of freedom, grit and melancholy. The result showcases their evolution as songwriters and arrangers.
Critical acclaim for Allah-Las…
15 Best Things We Saw at Coachella 2017’s Weekend 2 —Rolling Stone
“Allah-Las is a bona fide Los Angeles rock band...creating down-to-earth tracks that sound as though they emerged from a sultry garage in Southern California.” —Interview Magazine
“The group’s buffet of reverb, twang and mid-tone has been a modern rarity...it thrives majestically at their live shows.” —Paste
“…combines the West Coast psychedelic sound of the Doors with surf-inflected garage rock and classic R&B.” —Time Out L.A.
“Los Angeles garage-rock gurus Allah-Las tap into an alternate reality where the world is but a California dream.” —SPIN
“…slow-rolling and melancholic.” —Consequence of Sound
“[Allah-Las has] turned the so-cal attitude into their own personal projection of freedom, girls, and glory days spent by the shore.” —Flaunt
“California indie four-piece Allah-Las blends retro, upbeat, sunny guitar licks with lo-fi garage rock for some sweet, catchy tunes that have a bit of an edge.” —XPN “The Key”

Allah-Las is composed of Pedrum Siadatian (vocals/lead guitar), Miles Michaud (vocals/rhythm guitar), Matthew Correia (vocals/drum), and Spencer Dunham (vocals/bass). The band was formed in 2008 while three of the members were working at the legendary Amoeba Music record store. “We were all music fans before we were musicians,” says Correia. “We’ve spent a lot of time listening to music, and understanding what works for us and what doesn’t.” Their 2011 self-titled debut was nominated for independent album of the year by the A2IM Libbys.
In 2014, their sophomore LP Worship The Sun received critical acclaim from The Los Angeles Times who said the album “…lets the band’s trippy vintage rock absorb all sorts of new Southern California influences. Latin drumming, L.A.’s midcentury avant-garde beach culture and Laurel Canyon harmonies.” On the road the band, has built a dedicated following with extensive, sold-out tours and high profile festival dates throughout North, Central, and South America, Europe, South Africa, Russia, Mexico and Israel.
