The Mountain Goats announce Twin Inhuman Highway Fiends Tour

on April 01, 2014, 3:00pm

As if releasing a novel weren’t enough, The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle will hit the road this June with fellow bandmate Peter Hughes as part of The Mountain Goats Twin Inhuman Highway Fiends Tour 2014. The awesomely titled trek — a play on the band’s 1997 song “Twin Human Highway Flares” — officially kicks off on June 5th at Denver’s Gothic Theatre. It marks the first time the band has toured “duo-style” in seven years.

“We don’t really get a chance to do the duo thing much any more,” said Darnielle in a statement. “It is a blast, and it gets us into all-ages rooms, and we get around to a bunch of songs that’ve been lurking in shadowy corners for ages waiting for the bright fuel of the footlights. I would like, therefore, to alert the west coast, my old stomping grounds, that we are stomping your way duo-style for the first time since 2007, and that all the shows are all-ages, and that if the all-ages duo tour from last summer is any indicator, it is going to be a huge party.”
