Mitski Announces North American Headlining Tour

In support of her forthcoming album Be The Cowboy, out this fall, Mitski is embarking on a headlining tour of North America featuring a full band. Out Aug. 17, Be The Cowboy is the indie-rock artist’s fifth studio album, and thus far the track “Geyser” has been released with an accompanying music video.

The album, which you can preorder here, explores the narrative of an icy woman clutching to whatever control she can: “Because women have so little power and showing emotion is seen as weakness, this ‘character’ clings to any amount of control she can get,” Mitski said, loosely using the term “character.” “Still, there is something very primordial in her that is trying to find a way to get out.”

After opening for Lorde this spring, Mitski is gearing up for a solo tour starting this month in the U.S. She’ll then be heading abroad in September before returning to North America in October for her tour backed by a full band. Tickets for the fall tour will be on sale here starting June 8.
