Luckily, we didn’t have to wait too long for the Longshot to reveal their intimate headlining shows featuring support from the Darts and Dead Sound.

The short run will kick off June 7 in Oakland and wrap up June 13 in Santa Ana.

Tickets will go on sale this Thursday, May 30 at 12:00 p.m. PST. Make sure to act fast, as these will likely sell out very quickly!

More on the Longshot

Last year, the band surprise dropped not one, not two, but THREE EPs.

The EPs followed the release of the band’s debut album, Love Is For Losers, on Friday, April 20, 2018.

“Hey! I just put up 3 eps on SoundCloud!” Armstrong shared on the Longshot’s Instagram. “Originals, some covers I did in my garage and a couple songs from these paper bullets! Rock out and freak out!”
