Dirty Projectors announce 2018 summer tour dates

on March 05, 2018, 2:04pm

Save for a few one-off shows, Dirty Projectors didn’t actually tour behind last year’s self-titled album. Perhaps Dave Longstreth was just waiting to put together the right touring party, something he seems to have accomplished as the band has revealed a full schedule for this summer.

After performing at Arizona’s FORM Arcosanti, Dirty Projector’s proper tour will kick off May 12th in San Diego, California. They’ll play venues in Nashville, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Portland, as well as festivals like Boston Calling, Governors Ball, and Sled Island. The North American leg wraps June 30th in Houston, Texas, after which the band will head to Japan and Europe for a number of concerts. Joining Longstreth in Dirty Projectors’ live band will be Nat Baldwin, Felicia Douglass, Maia Friedman, Mike Johnson, and Kristin Slipp.

A video trailer for the tour also seems to tease new music and uses the phrase “Lamplit Prose.” Is that the name of the tour itself, or perhaps an upcoming effort? We’ll have to wait and see, but you can watch the clip below followed by the band’s full docket.
