Look Mexico announces drummer, sets more dates


Currently caravaning across the great Canadian tundra, Austin’s Look Mexico took some time off the stage this week to issue a statement about its new, permanent drummer. If you recall, earlier this year, founding member and drummer Joshua Mikel departed from the band to pursue other interests. Since then, they’ve been working with Alex Gooding. But we’ll let the band explain:

“When Josh left in February before our release-tour for ‘To Bed To Battle,’ (Ryan) Smith and (Ryan) Slate’s longtime friend Alex Gooding came in like the cavalry and saved our collective ass. He dropped everything and learned all of the songs in three days.  We quickly realized that he was the man for the job. His lifelong study of music combines with his rock steady rhythm to create a palette of stylistic possibilities that we’ve never had until now. We are very excited about his addition to the band.”

Fans should be too. As they continue to support their latest sophomore effort, To Bed To Battle, Look Mexico also unleashed some fresh new tour dates, which takes them across the Midwest and back down home to Austin, TX. If you’re in the area, be sure to step in and say hello.
