After releasing a string of stellar singles from his forthcoming album, Pure Comedy, as well as a short film documenting the making of the record, singer-songwriter and astute social commentator Father John Misty has announced a North American tour that will include a stop at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Aug. 25. The wonderful Jenny Lewis is also on the bill. Tickets go on sale March 17 at 10:00 a.m. You can find ticket info on AXS by clicking here.
If the singles “Pure Comedy,” “Two Wildly Different Perspectives” and “Ballad of a Dying Man” are any indication, FJM’s album Pure Comedy could even best his critically acclaimed album, I Love You, Honeybear. As Pitchfork reported, Josh Tillman also premiered another Pure Comedy track, “Leaving LA,” on a BBC 6 radio session. FJM will be touring North America in April (follow this link for select FJM tickets), including a slot at Coachella. The singer-songwriter will be performing on “Saturday Night Live” March 4.
