Band of Horses tackle headlining gigs, Railroad Revival slots
Seattle indie-rockers Band of Horses have mixed some headlining club and theater shows to their fall itinerary, which includes a supporting spot on the Railroad Revival Tour with Willie Nelson.
Before joining forces with Nelson, Jamey Johnson and John Reilly on the train-centric tour in mid-October, the five-piece indie-rock outfit will first complete a half-dozen club shows, beginning Oct. 10 in Cincinnati, OH.
The Railroad Revival Tour kicks off Oct. 20 in Duluth, GA, and pushes through seven major markets, after which Band of Horses will head to Europe for a round of shows and take on Australian markets early next year.
Band of Horses will release "Mirage Rock," the group's fourth studio effort, Sept. 18. The album, which has been produced by Glyn Johns (Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones), follows 2010's "Infinite Arms." That set peaked at No. 7 on The Billboard 200 and earned a Grammy nomination for Best Alternative Album.
The video for the forthcoming album's lead single, "Knock Knock," is currently streaming at the NPR website.
