RX Bandits return with free songs, tour

RX Bandits have re-emerged and are embarking on a tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their album The Resignation.

These shows will feature the OC alt-rock band performing the album in its entirety, in addition to playing fan favorites from the rest of its catalog. See tour dates below.

If ending their hiatus wasn’t cause enough for celebration, RX Bandits are releasing a five-song EP of covers – their first recorded material in four years as a gift to fans who have supported them over the years. Four of the songs are being released for free – one per week (started June 3) leading up to the tour commencement – with the fifth being exclusive to a limited edition CD version that will be available for purchase at the shows.

The Resignation found RX Bandits augmenting their sound with elements of Latin, prog-rock, dub and blues — ideas they further transformed through 2006’s ...And the Battle Begun and 2009’s Mandala.

Following this tour, RX Bandits will also play several summer festivals around the world, including Reading and Leeds. A new studio album might commence in 2014.
