Nate Mendel’s Lieutenant has just announced tour dates including an appearance in Toronto at The Mod Club April 1, 2015. Dine Alone Records has partnered with the revered musician to release his first solo album, If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going To Eat For A Week on March 10, 2015. The album is available to pre-order at iTunes and in a variety of bundles and formats at http://dinealonestore.com.
Mendel, also known as bassist for popular rock band Foo Fighters, highly influential emo act Sunny Day Real Estate and The Fire Theft, is venturing into uncharted territory as the primary songwriter, guitarist and singer for his first solo project, Lieutenant. After two decades of honing his technique on bass, Mendel was determined to step into a new role as the songwriter and frontman.
Lieutenant recently made its live debut with a string of warm up shows in Southern California. The lineup in tow featured Mendel along with Christian Wargo (Fleet Foxes) on bass, Paul “Pablo” Wilson (Snow Patrol) on guitar, Jorma Vik (The Bronx, Mariachi El Bronx) on drums and Kasai on keys. Additional spring dates will be announced soon, including a performance at SXSW in March.
