Mountain Goats hit the road with Final Fantasy for winter tour

on August 04, 2009, 10:30am

If you read last week’s news about the new Mountain Goats album, you’d know that it is titled The Life of the World to Come, is due for release on October 6th, and features the talents of Final Fantasy mastermind Owen Pallett.

So, it makes sense that in support of the release, the John Darnielle-led Mountain Goats have announced a winter tour and they’ll be bringing Pallett along for the ride. The trek will kick of November 4th in Grand Rapids, Michigan and will run until early December before ending with two shows in the Big Apple. All dates will feature a full Mountain Goats Band (which we assume includes Jon Wurster on drums, Peter Hughes on bass, and Pallett on strings), as well as an opening performance from Final Fantasy. Talk about doing double duty!

Ahead of the winter tour, Darnielle has a few solo dates scheduled for both Europe and the U.S. Get these as well as all other dates below…
