Dallas’s the Lash Outs were formed in February of 2006 and started playing shows shortly thereafter. Originally a straightforward punk outfit with an affinity for 50's rock and roll, they soon expanded on their sound by incorporating elements of late 70's power pop, British Invasion, and hard rock. Their self-titled debut album was released in 2008. The band’s sophomore long-player, Elation and Shame, followed in 2011 and was recorded by Stephen Egerton (Descendents/ALL/FLAG). In 2014, the band teamed up with Egerton again for their third album, State of Excess, which is scheduled to be released in early 2016.
