LATEST NEWS UPDATE:
04/27/21: What a long strange trip it's been...
Flashback to what would turn out to be the band's last live show to date: Feb 15th, 2020 at The Venue in Denver Colorado: Tora Tora is just putting the wraps on a super-busy 2019/2020 Bastards of Beale coast to coast rock-n-roll show throw down tour!! The band still had a few scattered fly-out dates for 2020 but the main goal for the year was to work on the follow-up album to Bastards of Beale for Frontiers Records for a late 2020 release. Then, as we all well know, EVERYTHING was turned upside down when Covid reached the U.S. and basically shut down the live entertainment industry completely (along with just about everything else that required a person to leave their house!). At that point with the uncertainty of rehearsal/writing availability and recording studios closing their doors indefinitely, there was no way to make the album delivery deadline for Frontiers. During those discussions and with some time to reflect, the label and band mutually agreed to scrap the 2nd album and part ways. We will always be grateful to Frontiers for allowing us the platform to reconnect with Tora Tora fans everywhere and to create new music. With all that being said, let there be no doubt that new music is on the way in the very near future and it is gonna rock, that is a promise!! Stay tuned, Tora Tribe...
