Son Volt US TOUR

Son Volt Announces Spring & Summer Touring In Support of Honky Tonk:

2013 is shaping up to be an incredibly busy year for Son Volt: in March , they will release Honky Tonk, the highly anticipated follow up to 2009’s acclaimed American Central Dust.

Also in March, Son Volt’s “eloquent and thought-provoking” (Spin) founder and leader, Jay Farrar, will publish Falling Cars and Junkyard Dogs (Soft Skull/Counterpoint Press).

The band is planning to tour behind Honky Tonk throughout the year. They have announced the dates for April through June, which will include a hometown show on June 1 in St. Louis.

Honky Tonk features eleven new Son Volt compositions that excavate the classic honky tonk sound of Bakersfield, yet distill and reimagine it. Honky Tonk stays true to the spirit of honky tonk music, while stretching out its familiar contours into new shapes and spaces.

Wall Street Journal music critic Jim Fusilli wrote that with American Central Dust, Farrar  “claimed his spot in the line of America’s great country songwriters who rocked in their own, inimitable way.” As evidenced by the songs on Honky Tonk, that was only the beginning.
