Chicano Batman Gears Up for Next Leg Of Their Expansive World Tour, Culminating in Massive Homecoming Show at The Kia Forum.

Fresh off the electrifying release of their fifth studio album, Notebook Fantasy (ATO Records), acclaimed psych-soul band Chicano Batman is set to embark on an expansive world tour. Known for their vibrant live performances, the Los Angeles-based band will bring their dynamic sound coast-to-coast across North America starting this month, culminating in a highly anticipated homecoming show at The Kia Forum on Saturday, June 29th.

Kicking off on Thursday, June 20th at the Moore Theatre in Seattle, WA, each performance on Chicano Batman’s upcoming tour promises to be a high-energy celebration of the band’s latest musical achievements, drawing on the bold and boundary-pushing sounds of Notebook Fantasy. The tour will feature acclaimed Colombian-Canadian singer-songwriter Lido Pimienta and El Monte’s The Red Pears, who will join Chicano Batman on various dates.

The pinnacle of this tour will undoubtedly be the massive homecoming performance at The Kia Forum in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 29th. This show marks a significant milestone for Chicano Batman, bringing their journey full circle as they perform in front of a hometown crowd that has supported them from the beginning. Fans can look forward to an unforgettable night filled with the energy and charisma that has made Chicano Batman a beloved staple in the music scene.

Chicano Batman is known for their unique blend of soulful psychedelia, rock, and Latin influences. The band, comprised of Bardo Martinez (vocals/lyricist), Carlos Arévalo (guitar), and Eduardo Arenas (bass), has captivated audiences with their innovative sound and vibrant performances. Their latest album, Notebook Fantasy, continues to showcase their exceptional musicianship and creativity.

Following the North American leg, Chicano Batman will take their show overseas for a series of performances in the United Kingdom and Europe in August, followed by multiple shows across Mexico, marking their first extensive tour in these regions.

Chicano Batman’s tour comes on the heels of the critically acclaimed Notebook Fantasy, a project that showcases the band’s artistic evolution and their commitment to pushing musical boundaries. Produced by John Congleton (St. Vincent, Erykah Badu) and partly recorded at the historic Sunset Sound, Notebook Fantasy embraces a sonic approach that bassist Eduardo Arenas refers to as “painting in primary colors.”

Notebook Fantasy takes its title from a phenomenon likely familiar to anyone who feels outside the status quo: the act of spending your formative years dreaming up other worlds and realities in the pages of a notebook, exploring those possibilities with a bold and wide-eyed freedom. Watch the band perform “Fly” on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Throughout the album, Chicano Batman channels moments of lightning-in-a-bottle inspiration into songs that push into fantastically strange terrain yet remain rooted in raw emotion.

“We wanted to peel back all the fuzziness and compression, and create something big and punchy and clear that would still hold up if you stripped it down to just a vocal and one instrument,” says guitarist Carlos Arévalo.

In addition to releasing their most collaborative album to date, Chicano Batman will also be featured on A24’s forthcoming Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense album. Listen to the band’s new single for the album, “Crosseyed and Painless.”

In addition to releasing their most collaborative album to date, Chicano Batman has also just released a cover of “Crosseyed and Painless” by Talking Heads, featured on A24’s Everyone’s Getting Involved: A Tribute to Talking Heads’ Stop Making Sense album. Listen HERE.
