Ty Segall & The Freedom Band have expanded their 2020 tour to include a list of performances this fall. The garage rock legend and his bandmates are continuing to support the latest studio album, First Taste, that dropped to the masses last summer via Drag City.

The 2020 tour kicks off in the spring with three-night run at the Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta, Georgia from May 1 through May 3. He’s also playing Psycho Las Vegas from Aug. 14 – 16. The North American tour will stop in major U.S. cities in the fall including Seattle (Tickets), Detroit (Tickets), Cleveland (Tickets), Boston (Tickets), a two-night run in Brooklyn (Tickets) and more.

Presales for select shows are currently underway and tickets go on sale to the general public on Jan. 17.

By all accounts, Ty Segall is a rock master – having dabbled in all forms of the genre including garage rock, glam rock, psychedelic rock, punk, country, and metal. His 2019 album First Taste follows the expansive 2018 double LP Freedom’s Goblin. His most recent collection is notably missing any form of a guitar. Instead, keyboards, stringed instruments, and percussion provide the musical body of the record. There’s even a classroom-style recorder that gives a crazy lilt to “I Sing Them.”

Fans who have followed Segall through the years relish his tripped-out sonic offerings. When he brings that frantic energy to the live stage, audience members can get swept up and immersed in the hot, electric vibe he projects. The shows on the upcoming tour should prove to be no exception.
