Blues-soul singer ZZ Ward will mix festival appearances with theater gigs on her summer run in support of her debut album, "Til The Casket Drops."

The Oregon native will begin the official outing with a May 18 performance at the Fort Worth Music Festival in Texas before beelining for the West Coast for a couple theater gigs. The 29-city outing crisscrosses the nation through an Aug. 30 appearance at the Milwaukee, WI, Harley Davidson event celebrating the brand's 110th anniversary.

One Canadian show, slated for Aug. 10 in Burnaby, British Columbia, is also on the books.

Ward unveiled her major label debut, "Til The Casket Drops," in November via Hollywood Records. The songstress is also set to release a special Record Store Day (4/20) 7" vinyl featuring two previously unreleased recordings: a cover of Son House's "Grinnin' in Your Face" and "Everybody Wants To Be Famous," which Ward says in a press release "makes you want to drive around listening to it on a summer night with the top down."

Though the vinyl is exclusive to Record Store Day, the both singles are currently streaming online, at Interview Magazine and Idolator, respectively.
