Modern English Announce New U.S. Tour After Canceling Previous Tour Due to Emergency Illness

Modern English  are back with a new summer tour and single after canceling their Take Me To The Trees Tour in March. Just tour shows into that run, the band’s guitarist, Gary McDowell, underwent an emergency surgery that required the cancellation. Now that McDowell has recovered, the band will embark on the Retro Futura Tour, a series of U.S. dates.

“We are really looking forward to coming back to the USA for this epic tour,” says McDowell. Shortly before McDowell’s surgery, the band made their first appearance at SXSW, which we called one of The 10 Best Sets We Saw at SXSW 2017. Their new single, “Moonbeam,” is from Take Me To The Trees, Modern English’s first new album in 30 years. The single announcement comes as a surprise, since the record has been out since February, but you can listen below nonetheless.

A full list of tour dates for the Retro Futura Tour can be found below as well, along with a Modern English performance of “Moonbeam” and others from the Paste Cloud.
