Casiotone for the Painfully Alone calls it a day with farewell tour

on July 28, 2010, 1:45pm

As Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, Owen Ashworth has made a career of five albums with only his voice and a cheap keyboard. Now, 13 years after starting the project, Ashworth is ending his side project in favor of a “fresh start and a new challenge.” But before he wraps it all up, he’s saying adieu with one final tour of the U.S. and Canada.

According to Prefix, the tour kicks off September 8th in Chicago, IL and literally goes all over America and up in to Canada before winding down on October 17th in Pittsburgh, PA. In a blog post on his MySpace, the Portland resident wrote, “I never would have started playing shows or making records without the encouragement of some great friends, and it’s blowing my ever-loving mind how many more friends I’ve made through music over the years. Seriously, thank you.”

As for tickets, it’s best to try at each individual venue. For those who can’t catch the tour, worry not; Tomlab is planning a memorial 10 inch to be released in December and one last “grand finale” effort that has yet to be finalized. Plus, Ashworth confirmed he’s already planning a new project.

As always, stay tuned for more details on Ashworth’s next incarnation as it’s announced.
