Aloha Tour In Support of Light Works. Add Member. Finish new album.

Aloha is hitting the road this spring in support of their latest release Light Works. Coming off the heels of 2005's Some Echoes, Light Works is an exercise showcasing the quieter side of Aloha. Each song is based on Tony Cavallario's acoustic guitars, but the world they inhabit is vintage Aloha: richly detailed, moody, intensely rhythmic and flowing with melody. It's probably Aloha's most inviting release, in spirit and in sound.

Aloha's spring tour will take them across the US including stops at the SXSW and MACRock festivals. The band will support The Velvet Teen on the west coast and play the Midwest and east coast with up and comers Anathallo. This will be the first tour with new member Nick Anderson, who joins the band on bass for this tour after working closely with the band on both Light Works and Some Echoes.

2008 looks to be a busy year for Aloha. Beyond the spring tour they will complete work on a new full-length album due out in fall of 2008. On top of that drummer extraordinaire Cale Parks has joined White Williams and will tour heavily with them throughout the year.
