MONSTERS OF FOLK ANNOUNCE FALL TOUR, EXTEND A

CHARITABLE HAND

Self-Titled Album in Stores September 22nd on Shangri-La Music

Monsters of Folk was born on the road five years ago when My Morning Jacket’s Jim
James, Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, and singer/songwriter M. Ward
toured together and regularly sat in on each other’s sets. Now armed with the eclectic
and consistently striking songs that make up their debut album, the illustrious quartet will
reconvene for a Fall tour. The four members will be switching instruments and trading
roles throughout each show, maintaining the freewheeling and highly collaborative spirit
of their work together thus far.
On this inaugural tour, Monsters of Folk is partnering with Air Traffic Control, a
resource for musicians’ philanthropic and social change work, to donate monies raised
from ticket sales. The band will be donating $1 from every ticket sold on the tour to local
non-profits.
“On a daily basis, we see how hard organizations like these work to make our
communities, country and world a better place.” said Erin Potts, the organization’s
executive director. “In a time when economic resources are harder to come by and
organizations are overwhelmed by urgency and need, the Monsters of Folk tour’s
charitable activities are a significant way to energize and support the tireless and often
overlooked work that these organizers are doing.”
Pre-sale tickets for the US and Canada shows will be available beginning Tuesday, July
28, followed by the public on-sale beginning Friday, July 31. Tickets for the UK / EU
shows will be available beginning Tuesday, July 27.

  1. $43? Yikes. They charge a $5 service charge at the Palace Box office now too, that used to be a way to get around service fees.

  2. does anyone know how to access pre-sale tickets?
