Lani Ford: News/Blog

STARK Spring 2010 Press Release

Posted on May 23, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 

NEW YORK CITY (May 22, 2010) –  STARK's LANI FORD PLAYS L.A. BEFORE TAKING THE BAND BACK TO THE UK

 

STARK's CD Race To The Floor is still charging out of the gate, prompting Lani Ford to head west then take the band back to the UK before wrist surgery in July.

 

STARK is demonstrating their relentless spirit as cool reviews and radio play have started coming in for the latest full-length CD Race To The Floor.  To keep up the momentum, STARK will return to the UK for a 3rd tour June 25th-July1st, playing in Kent, Essex and London.  Lani played a solo acoustic tour in the UK in November with Lilith's Army, which led her to miss her flight and have to buy a new round trip ticket.  So, what the heck, let's book some dates.  STARK, with Eric Kuby from Grande and BelAir filling in on drums, will play for promoters who have been supporting the band for a long time:  Shakey from Shakester Records, Marc at Big Note/Hope & Anchor, Steve DIY with Street Voice UK and new friends at the Legendary St. Anne's Castle.

 

Before that, Lani will head to Los Angeles, CA to play a Shout It Out Promotions showcase at Genghis Cohen in West Hollywood June 8th.  She will also play the Music Connection open mic at El Cid Monday June 7th. This will be Lani's first time back on the West Coast in 16 years.  Last time was a crazy experience resulting in 2 tattoos.  This trip hopes to be tamer in that regard but still involve a lot of fun, hanging out with old friends and all the migratory New Yorkers plus meeting a lot of people who have become friends over the years on Facebook and MySpace.

 

Lani can't afford anything too wild as she still has to have surgery on her wrist when the band returns from the UK.  During her recovery time (since she can't boogie board much to her demise), she will be finalizing plans for a Midwest U.S. tour, a return to the West Coast with the full band and maybe, dare we say it? Ok, yes...Japan! 

 

STARK has a lot of new T-shirts, totes and other stuff you can get on their website.  All new subscribers get a free download of the new album Race To The Floor.
