Pinegrove announced in an Instagram post Tuesday that they will be performing a limited run of shows near the end of the year. These are the first shows the band will have played since the end of their year-long hiatus, which was prompted by allegations of sexual coercion against frontman Evan Stephens Hall.
Hall recently revealed in a Pitchfork profile that he and his accuser had reached an agreement, and that the band would start performing again. Pinegrove’s second major album, Skylight, was finally (self-)released as part of this agreement, with all Bandcamp profits donated to charity.
Continuing in that vein, Pinegrove announced that a portion of ticket sales from their upcoming shows will be donated to Planned Parenthood. In addition, the band announced that they would be partnering with organizations and volunteers trained in active bystander intervention in each city, with “more details on that to come.”
Find the full list of dates further down. Tickets go on sale at noon ET today, Oct. 9.
