Acerbic singer-songwriter Father John Misty is taking his Comedy on the road.

On Wednesday, Father John Misty revealed a massive new tour itinerary in support of his upcoming record Pure Comedy, out this Friday, April 7. In addition to previously announced shows at venues like Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Misty’s new tour dates include a host of new international and North American stops, including a show at the brand new venue Brooklyn Steel. According to his Facebook, presale for the new dates begin this Monday, April 10, with the password COMEDY. Get tickets to select Father John Misty shows right here on AXS.com.

Last night on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” Father John Misty -- aka Josh Tillman to his family -- performed his terrific new song “Ballad of the Dying Man.” Watch video of that performance in the clip embedded above. He has also been giving remarkable interviews as part of his press tour, declaring to Pitchfork that, “If you take away my music from me, all you have left is a mustache and a bad attitude,” and explaining to Rolling Stone what it’s like to see a Taylor Swift concert on LSD.

The great Weyes Blood is scheduled to open for most of Father John’s fall tour dates, so don’t sleep on this one. Click here to get tickets to select Father John Misty shows on AXS.com.
