Indie folk singer-songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov will leave a notable mark on his 2018 fall tour this weekend with a sold-out show at the picturesque Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. To celebrate the start of another tour and album cycle, the Colorado native announced today that he'll be selling a limited edition vinyl pressing of his soon-to-be-released studio effort, Evening Machines, which is scheduled to arrive next Friday, Oct. 5.

According to the announcement shared by Isakov on Friday, the exclusive Red Rocks edition colored vinyl will match the same red shade as made famous by the mountain venue’s geographical hue when touched by the setting sun. The purchase of the album will include instant downloads of the album’s first three singles, “Chemicals,” "Caves," and "Dark, Dark, Dark." The official audio-only music video for “Dark, Dark, Dark” can be watched and listened to above.

“I wrote [‘Dark, Dark, Dark’] down in the Sangre de Cristo Mountain range in southern Colorado,” Isakov admitted on his Facebook recently in regards to his latest single from the album. “An area of the world that I travel to often and tends to show up a lot in my writing.”

Isakov’s Red Rocks performance with Patty Griffin on Sunday night will continue the three-month global tour, which heads over to Europe and the U.K. starting in late November and continuing into early December. Some of the notable stops on the North American fall leg of the tour include shows at Seattle’s Moore Theatre, Los Angeles’ Theatre at Ace Hotel and two nights at Boston’s Royale on Nov. 16-17, just to name a few. Isakov kicked off the tour earlier this week with a run of shows in big sky country of Montana, Wyoming and Idaho.
