Mike Doughty’s Band Confirms Tour Supporting New Album Golden Delicious

Mike Doughty’s Band will embark on a six-week North American headlining tour in March, supporting Doughty’s new album Golden Delicious. Kicking off March 12 in Northampton, Mass., the tour continues across the United States and Canada before wrapping in late April. Led by Doughty on vocals and guitars, the band also includes John Kirby (Black Eyed Peas) on keyboards, Pete McNeal (Cake, Jem, Gary Jules) on drums and Andrew “Scrap” Livingston on bass.

 

Golden Delicious is released by ATO Records today, February 19. The first single from the album, “27 Jennifers,” is currently in the top 10 at AAA radio, according to MediaBase. In early reviews, Relix called it a “ripe and fruitful album,” and Paste said, “those with a taste for his off-kilter sensibility will find his latest delicious indeed.”

 

Copies of Golden Delicious purchased at participating Coalition of Independent Music Stores retailers will receive a free EP called Busking, featuring five tracks recorded live as Doughty played in a New York City subway station last year, with the help of producer Pat DIllett. (Doughty made $3.10 from generous passersby.) For a list of CIMS stores nationwide, see www.cimsmusic.com.

 

This week, coinciding with the release of Golden Delicious, video footage of exclusive Mike Doughty acoustic performances will be posted on a variety of music websites, billed as the “Virtual Tour.” Doughty and Livingston performed songs from the new album for Stereogum.com, My Old Kentucky Blog, Paste Magazine’s website, Seattlest.com and SF Station. The Virtual Tour will continue with other online outlets after the album’s release.

 

Doughty has also begun a DJ side project under the stage name Mikey Dough, composing electronic dance music and performing at clubs in New York and elsewhere. The next Mikey Dough show will be at the Knitting Factory in New York on February 22.
