Lorenzo will be heading out on the road in May in support of their latest album, Ignition. The tour, which hits the Midwest and East Coast in May and June, brings the band back to the more conventional style of touring, rather than playing spots dates like they did last year with Fuel.

In between live shows and lending band members out for other projects, Lorenzo has finally found time to begin recording their follow-up to "Love Shape Bruise." Recording in an apartment in South Carolina (the band members live in various parts of the Southeast), what is emerging is a tougher and very meaty Lorenzo, but still keeping the Lorenzo sound. Once tracks have been laid down, Kane Churko (Kevin Churko's son) will be called in to mix at least part of the record for a second or third quarter release.
Lorenzo received some nice press from Blabbermouth.net and GuitarWorld from the last rash of shows. Check out the article.
