There is some good news on the horizon for all you Akron/Family fans out there. Approximately one month from now the band will release upon the world their newest LP, entitled Set 'Em Wild, Set 'Em Free on Dead Oceans Records. This album will be the follow-up to the critically revered Love is Simple, I have heard samples from the new record and judging from what I have heard the album may just be the best thing the band has put out thus far. Expect to see the album in stores as of May 5th.

In support of the album's release the band will be taking to the road, playing almost every day in March. Now, this won't just be your everyday, run-of-the-mill tour. The band has hand-selected the opening bands for every show and members from the opening bands will be joining Akron/Family on stage for their performances. The list of openers includes the likes of Rock Plaza Central, Howlin' Rain, Golden Animals and Hollywood Hotshots. The tour will be limited to California, New York, Las Vegas, Colorado, Austin for SXSW and a few Canadian dates, on which they will be co-headlining with another one of my favorite bands, Born Ruffians. I must warn you, a few of these shows are already sold out. So if you plan to see Akron/Family in March you better get out there and buy yourself some tickets before it's too late. -Greg Lozoff
