Ted Leo and the Pharmacists Start New Life
with Touch and Go, Start Tour of the U.S.
with Les Aus, The Duke Spirit
Joining the group of artists formerly affiliated with Lookout! Records, Ted Leo has officially made the jump to Touch and Go Records. He and the Pharmacists are now embracing the new outlook without Lookout!.
In talking about the agreement, Ted said "As sad as I am that circumstances have forced a move from Lookout! Records, I'm insanely happy and thankful to be able to make that move over to Touch & Go. T&G is a label that has provided me, personally, with amazing music for 25 years; over those years, I have become friends with many of their artists and staff, and it's an honor to now be a real part of their ongoing ruling-ness.
By all accounts, there's new music on the way but it might be late summer/early fall before the public gets any of that. Cruise over to the Spacelab Downloads page to sample two new MP3 tracks Ted has put online to tide all of us over until then.
And go see the live show. Ted Leo and the Pharmacists as they are now touring the U.S. with Les Aus and The Duke Spirit, + hitting SXSW and Coachella.
