Canadian neo-rock nerds Double Experience recently spent their Summer not only touring the USA, but also headed across the pond and, this past August, recently wrapped up their third UK tour (dates below). Entitled the L.A.R.P. Tour (The Live Action Rock Performance Tour) the band performed three weeks of show dates across England, Scotland and Ireland in promotion of their new album 721835 released on August 1st and recorded by fellow science-fiction aficionado Al Jacob (He is Legend, A Skylit Drive).

Guitarist Brock Tinsley recaps the “Live Action Rock Performance UK Tour”: “As Double Experience approaches the final stretch of dates, I can’t help but feel that this was not only one of the best of our three over here, but one of the best of our young career so far. We believe that the widely-accepted masters of the rock genre all started in the United Kingdom, so the opportunity to perform here for the third time is one we will be forever thankful for.”

“The Live Action Rock Tour was a perfect blend of the sense of adventure of our first UK tour combined with the scope and quality of our comprehensive fifty date follow-up last Fall, minus the exhaustion and occasional unshakable sensation that we would never see our home country again.”

“On paper, ‘dorky band from North America with strange sense of humour, playing even-stranger-to-compartmentalize music’ is enough to get us stopped at the airport terminal and sent packing back to our garage, but we are pleased to report that we have successfully rocked sceptics and altruists alike from Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England. This time, the only unshackle sensation that we feel is that of anticipation for our next visit.”
