Twin Shadow On Taking Texas & Why You Should Always Wear a Helmet

Although the phrasing makes it sound like a military campaign, make no mistake about the Twin Shadow Takes Texas tour: This is a celebration of a state whose fans have been supportive of the music and played host to some of Twin Shadow's best shows.

Part of a larger national tour, this Texas swing takes Twin Shadow, born George Lewis Jr., and his touring band through five cities for a series of shows, instore appearances, and media promotion. They'll be in town Sunday night playing at Fitzgerald's with openers Niki and The Dove and HPMA nominees Bang Bangz.

Add to that a special 7" created specifically for this run of shows and you have the makings of a pretty good time for both old and new Twin Shadow fans. Rocks Off caught up with Lewis to talk Texas, record reviews, and motorcycle safety.
