Neko Case Announces North American Headlining Tour

Neko Case  has announced a North American headlining tour for September 2018 following the release of her forthcoming album, Hell-On, out on June 1 via Anti-.

Case was previously announced as a support act for nearly 40 tour dates with Ray Lamontagne this summer, as well as a European headlining tour. These new dates in September comprise over a dozen stops, including New York’s Beacon Theatre, and all the dates will feature support from Thao of The Get Down Stay Down.

The New Pornographers  vocalist recently released the title track and another single, “Bad Luck,” from her forthcoming seventh studio album, which she also produced. Case also announced that the album will feature appearances by Beth Ditto, Mark Lanegan, k.d. Lang, AC Newman, Eric Bachmann, Kelly Hogan, Doug Gillard, Laura Veirs, Joey Burns “and many more.”

Case said of the unique sound of her new album:

My style is odd, I don’t know what genre this is. I don’t have a pretty voice or a trained voice, and I am constantly disappointed that I don’t have a “tough” voice, no matter how hard I practice, but it’s mine, and for all its loud, heavy-handed, nasal, vibrato-less qualities I accept it. The closest sound I have found to compare it to is Bulgarian Folk singing. My Eastern ancestors could have been proud of me a century ago? I could have been a droning “caller of wasps” perhaps? I just invented that job, I like the sound of it. The songs are who I believe myself to be and that will change, but for now that’s how it is and I’m very satisfied with that.

Check out her upcoming tour dates below. You can preorder Hell-On here.
