Matt Mays and El Torpedo Keep On Truckin'

Published: 2005-06-27
Going and going and going until they can't go no more, Matt Mays & El Torpedo have a full summer ahead of them. The band is out on the road supporting its recently released Matt Mays & El Torpedo disc' in a very efficient way.

Splitting their time between North America and the United Kingdom, Mays and co. will be hitting New York City next, playing the Mercury Lounge tomorrow. After that the roots-rockers will celebrate Canada Day in a big way, playing a series of East Coast dates before jetting off for a ten-date run across the UK.

Then Mays & El Torpedo are back, and then they're off again. Sticking to the eastern half of the country, the quintet will make themselves welcome in Quebec and Ontario, and of course, visit their home turf on the East Coast once again.

To watch the video for "Cocaine Cowgirl," the first single off of the band's 2005 self-titled album that's rocketing them into Canadian stardom, go to
