The Wasted Tour Kicks Off May 2 in Atlanta


Los Angeles – It’s one thing for a new band to amass a following of fans who sing along to every word, it’s another thing to get the critical praise of the respected music industry press. Luckily, for Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, they are firing on both cylinders with the recent release of their second full-length record, Wasted.

Here’s what the press has to say about Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and Wasted:

“The band’s sound defies classification, with its latest album, Wasted, best described as a sort of hodgepodge of rock styles. A variety of guitar sounds (including, yes, some steel guitar) anchor the melodies, while Nelson’s high-pitched, familiar voice buoys things up.” – Yahoo! Music

“‘Wasted’ is the first great album of Lukas Nelson’s career.  He pulls no punches and gives his listeners a lot of credit to weather the ups and downs of this often intense and challenging music.” No Depression

“Lukas’s talents take him beyond receiving ‘good genes’ and bring his sound into a genre that cannot be categorized since it was originated by his band, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real” –

“The writing and playing abilities of Lukas Nelson and his band are rock solid. The melodies and harmonies are well crafted, and the lyrical content is packed to the hilt with good old fashioned no holds barred swagger and priceless wisdom. Nelson is infectious and has all the trademarks needed to gravitate a huge fan base. He should be classified as something special.” –

The band has truly earned such praise after years of honing their unique sound through doing it, as they say, the old-fashioned way by touring constantly and gelling as a band live first. “This record turned out how it did because we just really gelled as a band more by playing live so much,” says drummer Anthony LoGerfo. “It’s more cohesive. I think we’ve really improved as a band and are a lot tighter now.”
