A lot of y'all out there are familiar with some of the better LA area bands out there - from Silversun Pickups and Midnight Movies to Irving and Earlimart. However there is another one that you should keep an eye out for this year known as Let's Go Sailing. The band has been around since 2002, when Shana Levy left Irving to create Let's Go Sailing. The first album featured Tanya Haden, Nikki Monninger (Silversun Pickups), Brent Turner (Irving) and Byron Reynolds (Possum Dixon).
Now, about five years later, Let's Go Sailing will release their label debut, The Chaos In Order, on April 3 via Yardley Pop Records. The lineup has changed a little to include Shana Levy with Dave Scher (All Night Radio/Beachwood Sparks), Elvis Perkins, Shon Sullivan (Goldenboy) and Mandy Hoffman. In honor of their new release, Let's Go Sailing will be heading out on a national tour in March. Make sure to hit up one of the dates below, we promise you wont be disappointed.
