Royal Oak Music Theatre to host Father John Misty

Royal Oak Music Theatre will host Father John Misty at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 19 with special guest Weyes Blood.

Father John Misty, otherwise known as folk musician and former Fleet Foxes drummer Josh Tillman, is out on the road performing selections from his third studio long-player, Pure Comedy, which emerged back in April through Sub Pop Records. The album made its debut at No. 10 on the Billboard 200, spawning four singles: “Pure Comedy,” “Two Wildly Different Perspectives,” “Ballad of the Dying Man,” and “Total Entertainment Forever.”

Fear Fun, Father John Misty’s debut, celebrated its fifth anniversary earlier this year. The album originally dropped in April 2012 via Sub Pop. It debuted at No. 123 on the Billboard 200 and was accompanied by music videos for the tracks "Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings,” “Nancy from Now On,” “This Is Sally Hatchet,” “I’m Writing a Novel,” and “Funtimes in Babylon.”

Father John Misty’s critically acclaimed sophomore effort, I Love You, Honeybear, was released back in April 2015 via Sub Pop and gave birth to the singles “Bored in the USA” and "Chateau Lobby #4 (in C for Two Virgins).”

The singer-songwriter, guitarist, and drummer is expected to release a fourth full-length sometime next year.

Also on the blood is psychedelic folk-pop musician Natalie Mering, better known by her stage name Weyes Blood. The singer-songwriter released her latest full-length, Front Row Seat to Earth, last October via Mexican Summer.
