Swedish rock superstars The Soundtrack Of Our Lives will release the long-awaited follow-up to their stellar 2002 effort Behind The Music on March 1. The band are lining up a full-scale spring tour in support of the album, dubbed Origins Volume 1, but if you happen to live in a few select cities, you'll get a chance to see them this month. T.S.O.O.L. will be playing a quick, five-show tour beginning in Boston on January 15. They'll then hit NYC, Chicago, and San Francisco before wrapping things up in sunny LA on the 26th. If you're not in one of those markets, you'll just have to wait, sorry. This band puts on one of the best live shows you'll see and are guaranteed to rock your socks off. Robust, robe-wearing frontman Ebbot Lundberg is like a LA Woman-era Jim Morrison and Woodstock-era Joe Cocker rolled into one round ball of rock glory. I have my tickets already, if that tells you anything.
