Indie singer-songwriters Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile have unveiled a fall North American tour. They will perform songs from a previously teased collaborative album, which they have finished recording and will release later this year via Matador Records, Marathon Artists and Milk! Records. The duo will perform songs off their forthcoming album on tour, in addition to mining their respective back catalogues and covering a few classics.
Barnett and Vile will be backed by their band The Sea Lice, which includes members Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Rob Laakso (The Violators, The Swirlies, Mice Parade) and Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin and touring member of Sleater-Kinney and Wild Beasts). “A cookin’ band and an intercontinental country duo for the ages-minus the country,” quipped Vile.
Barnett and Vile have partnered with Plus 1 on their tour so that $1 from each ticket sold goes to support the ACLU. Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 9, at 10 a.m. local time on the duo’s respective websites.
