Chadwick Stokes (Dispatch, State Radio) and his band The Pintos have released their self-titled album via Thirty Tigers. Taking aim at weighty subjects, the music in Chadwick Stokes and The Pintos comes spilling out of a wormhole-time traveling stories about history, culture, and the elements of love, loss, and longing that connect us across every divide.
The writing in album notes intense struggles-personal, ethical, political, or cultural-that have always galvanized Stokes as a listener and artist. “We’re living in a crazy time, a very upsetting time,” says Stokes. “If we’re not protesting, there’s a problem.”
Having tested many of these songs on the road over the years of touring, Stokes has created an almost timeless quality to these refined and reimagined studio versions.
Chadwick Stokes and The Pintos will tour the album in December and January making stops in major markets including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Nashville, Philly, and more. They will be joined by Mihali (of Twiddle) and Daniel Rodriguez (of Elephant Revival) for select shows.
Chad will also be performing in his hometown of Boston for a special Calling All Crow Benefit show (the 12th Annual!) at House of Blues on December 21st with special guest Kat Wright. Calling All Crows is the social activist organization founded by Stokes and his wife, Sybil. For over 10 years the charity has brought their commitment to hands on service and activism on the road, working with musicians, fans and local nonprofits. Currently, Chad Stokes’ main commitment is to provide venue patrons and staff with up to date harassment policies and training plans – Calling All Crows’ current campaign Here For The Music, combats sexual harassment and assault at music venues and concerts.Tickets are available now – PRESS HERE to purchase.
