Hamilton Leithauser is striking out on the road to perform at venues nationwide this spring and summer. The former Walkmen frontman is touring to support his upcoming solo album Here They Come. Anna St. Louis and Ryley Walker will support him at select shows.
The 2020 The Loves Of Your Life Tour kicks off on May 7 in Nashville, Tennessee. The tour will wind through major cities in Canada, the UK, Europe and the U.S. including Denver (Tickets), Los Angeles (Tickets), Cambridge (Tickets), and Philadelphia (Tickets).
Presales for select shows are underway and tickets go on sale to the general public on Feb. 28. A limited number of premium tickets will also be available to purchase for select shows.
Hamilton Leithauser has forged a successful solo career since 2014. He teamed with Rostam Batmanglij of Vampire Weekend for a side project in 2016. Leithauser’s most recent studio album, I Won’t Let Up: Live at Music Hall of Williamsburg was part of that project.
The New York-based artist returns in 2020 with an album he produced, wrote, and recorded himself. Here They Come will arrive sometime this year via Glassnote Records. In talking about the album in a statement, Leithauser said, “All of the songs on my new record are about people. Individual, real people. Some are strangers I’ve met, but a lot are friends.”
The title track marks the first example of drawing inspiration from friends. Leithauser released the song in January, followed by a music video on Feb. 7.
In narrating the music video, Leithauser says, “This is one about a friend of mine that used to run from all his roommates in his tiny apartment and maybe all of his problems, by going to the movie theater in the morning and buying a ticket for a show. Then when that show was over, sneaking into whatever the hell was playing next door.”
Drawing on these kinds of stories makes Here They Come a personal record for the indie folk-rocker. Fans will get to hear some more of these life stories as Leithauser takes the new record to live audiences across the country this year.
