Richard the Lionhearted to Play In-Store Jan. 19

The venerable rock and roll outfit Richard the Lionhearted make their return to St. Louis to debut new material in preparation for their forthcoming sophomore album. The band will be playing in-store at Euclid Records (601 E. Lockwood in Webster Groves) at 3 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19 and again that evening at 9 p.m. at the Way Out Club (2525 S. Jefferson) before heading to Rock Island, Ill. for a live-streaming, in-studio Daytrotter Session at the Horseshack at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 20.

This Columbia-based five-piece band embodies “a sound born before its members were… drawing deep from the wells of psychedelic rock and cosmic-minded country dug in the 1970s… yet deftly pass their retro-fied sonic penchants through the eye of a modern-rock needle.” Richard the Lionhearted has opened for a number of nationally known acts (Tapes ‘n Tapes, Other Lives, Oberhofer, Jessica Lea Mayfield, Swearin' among others) in their collegiate hometown and have logged many miles touring throughout the US.
