Stolas touring in support of new LP

Progressive rockers Stolas [stoh-less] hail from Las Vegas, NV. The band’s new LP Living Creatures was just released on Blue Swan Records (the label owned by Will Swan of Dance Gavin Dance.)

Living Creatures features guest appearances from Tilian Pearson (Dance Gavin Dance), Kurt Travis, Jonny Craig, Donovan Melero (Hail The Sun), Cory Lockwood (A Lot Like Birds).

Stolas interweave clever lyrics, metaphors, and stark imagery to adhere to the overall narrative of the record. Each song is a component of a larger picture. Sometimes large geographical locations serve as metaphors, or ghosts become haunting phantoms that inevitably force change. Each track is laced with some illusion to further the idea of a "Living Creature."

Carlo, Sergio, RJ, and Jason worked hard to give fans something they could sink their teeth into. "Living Creatures" is a dense, enjoyable listen with moving lyrics.

Upcoming shows:

June 16- Chain Reaction- Anaheim, CA
