Texas-based rock band The Bright Light Social Hour announced a run of upcoming tour dates late last week in promotion of their forthcoming studio album, Jude Vol. I. The four-piece outfit will head out on their winter-into-spring North American tour beginning on March 5 in Florida and continuing over 32 performances until coming to an end on May 13. The band will be joined by Walker Lukens for 15 shows in April and May in addition to select dates with Rubedo and Other Worlds.
The upcoming run of shows start out in the southeastern U.S. with gigs in Tallahassee, Florida; Athens, Georgia; and Greenville, South Carolina, before heading west for a week's worth of local gigs in their home base of Austin, Texas for SXSW 2019 in mid-March. The run continues with notable performances at Denver’s Gothic Theatre, followed by more dates out west in Seattle, Vancouver, Portland, Spokane, and Bozeman before heading south again to hit Texas’ Fortress Festival in late April. The east coast leg of the tour with support from Lukens starts with a show at Saturn in Birmingham, Alabama on April 28, followed by stops in Atlanta, New York City, Philadelphia, Boston and wrapping in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on May 5.

The band recently shared the first track set to appear on Jude Vol. I in the form of a dreamy and psychedelic tune titled, “Lie To Me (Große Lüge).” The forthcoming release in a few weeks follows a year in 2018 that saw the band share their five-track Missing Something EP, and guitarist Curtis Roush releasing his debut solo album, Cosmic Campfire Music.
Jude Vol. I is scheduled to arrive on February 1 via Modern Outsider.
