The Mountain Goats have announced that they will be going on tour later this year. The “We Who Walk Behind the Rows” tour takes place this fall at venues across North America.
John Darnielle, the core member of the Mountain Goats, revealed that they are working on new music. Pitchfork posted an excerpt from his announcement.
THE MOUNTAIN GOATS HAVE NOW BEEN A QUARTET FOR A LITTLE OVER A YEAR and it is so inspiring it is to find ourselves here: “never do things too fast” has always been my motto: write a lot, release a lot, but only change up your game when it feels right, always be moving forward but kick back strongly at anybody trying to grab hold of your shoulders and push you in any particular kinda direction. This philosophy is why we didn’t go into a recording studio at all until we were good and ready, why we didn’t have a full-time drummer until 2007, and it’s why we knew, when Matt Douglas showed up on the scene, that we were headed into new terrain. …
EVERY SHOW ON THE BRINE CRYPT EXODUS TOUR SOLD OUT EXCEPT FOR THE ONE WHERE WE SOLD THE MOST TICKETS, which is totally hilarious, but I mention this by way of saying: we’re touring in the fall. Full electric tour at full volume, all four of us. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 29. The smaller rooms will sell out quicker, the bigger ones may take a minute, fair warning as Van Halen said on the album that has “Unchained” on it, which they said the same year that Rufus released Camouflage, which you should go listen to right now because it’s one of the best albums anywhere. As for us, we’ll see you in the fall!
