After a New York date in June, My Morning Jacket will be heading out for a lengthy run about the United States of America. The tour comes amidst the release of the band's new album "Evil Urges" on June 10.
Frontman Jim James promises fans that there will be plenty of new material featured in the gigs which are billed as "An Evening With My Morning Jacket" (ie, much longer than your average). He also addressed the problem that band's with a hefty back-catalogue have on tour.
"That's the problem we always have sitting around trying to make a set list," he told Billboard "You want to play the new ones, but you also want to do some of the older ones. That's why keep playing longer and longer."
