News: The Milk Carton Kids Announce Tour

3 min read

(US) The Milk Carton Kids have just announced a Fall headlining tour of North America in support of their new album, Monterey, out May 19th. One year ago, their 55-city tour sold out months in advance and the band used the down time while out on the road to record Monterey. This Fall, the acclaimed duo will be performing in the biggest and most prestigious venues of their career. From New York City’s Town Hall, to Los Angeles’s Theatre at Ace Hotel, to Atlanta’s Symphony Hall, the ideal settings have been chosen to enable the duo to replicate the nuances and dynamics of their stirring new album.

It is the little details that the band will cherish most as they recognize the long road they’ve traveled in the short 4 years they’ve been together. Joey Ryan states: “We’re very excited for this tour, having been assured that none of the rooms we’re playing will have beer fridges that are louder than the PA.”

The Los Angeles-based duo has grown in popularity from a mixture of word of mouth, rave reviews, and a desire to provide an exceptional live experience. Their featured performances and interviews in T Bone Burnett and the Coen Brother’s 2014 concert documentary, Another Day/Another Time, brought the band its widest audience yet. The LA Times hails them for “absolute mastery of their craft.” Paste Magazine highlights the “intellectual sophistication of their songs,” and Garrison Keillor calls them “absolute geniuses at close harmony.”

The band’s new album, Monterey, was recorded not in a studio, but on the stages of theaters and churches across North America that have always coaxed the band’s most uninhibited expressions. It is a method that allowed the band to finally capture on record the same fearlessness and spontaneity usually only achieved in a live setting.
