My Morning Jacket has been on tour pretty consistently since they released their sixth studio album, Circuital last year. And now, the Kentucky-based rock quintet will extend its tour after they return from a month in Europe and the United Kingdom at the beginning of July.
MMJ are set to spend the rest of July and August traversing the United States and Canada with alt-rockers Band of Horses (who have recently announced their next album) and Shabazz Palaces. Check out MMJ’s summer tour schedule and the video for “Holdin on to Black Metal” below and visit MMJ’s official site before Wednesday, May 2 at noon EST to sign up for the band’s fanclub, Roll Call, and qualify for presale tickets.
