Ha Ha Tonka's European tour starts THIS week!


"I'm old enough to know that I could probably get away with it still," Brian Roberts of Ha Ha Tonka sings on 'Dead To the World', the lead track from their latest album, 'Lessons', released on Bloodshot Records. To get away with anything isn't the point these days for the band from Springfield, Missouri. 'Lessons' is an album about being alive in moment, and not putting off greatness for another day, hence the title. It acknowledges death, love, relationships and questions what is real versus what is synthetic, and the value of that difference.

Ha Ha Tonka has beautifully perfected their incredible blend of Americana, indie, folk and rock. The sound is uniquely and unequivocally Tonka and fits in heroically with the progression seen in their last albums. As we speak the band is heading to Europe once again for shows in United Kingdom, Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain, Italy, Germany and Denmark. Tour starting tomorrow and you can find all tourdates at the bottom of this message.

Ha Ha Tonka will bring a room to a near boiling point, then bring it down to a hush, then blow it all up to the point where, at the end of the night, you are wore out and you're not sure why.
