MONSTERS OF FOLK ANNOUNCE FALL TOUR DATES

Monsters of Folk was born on the road five years ago when My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, Bright Eyes’ Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis, and singer/songwriter M. Ward toured together and regularly sat in on each other’s sets. Now armed with the eclectic collaborations that make up their debut album, the illustrious quartet will reconvene for several Fall tour dates. Throughout each show of the tour, the four members will be switching instruments and trading roles, maintaining the freewheeling and highly collaborative spirit of their work together thus far. In the spirit of folk-camaraderie, Monsters of Folk is partnering with Air Traffic Control, a resource for musicians’ philanthropic and social change work, to donate monies raised from ticket sales. The band will be donating $1 from every ticket sold on the tour to local non-profits.

“On a daily basis, we see how hard organizations like these work to make our communities, country and world a better place.” said Erin Potts, the organization’s executive director. “In a time when economic resources are harder to come by and organizations are overwhelmed by urgency and need, the Monsters of Folk tour’s charitable activities are a significant way to energize and support the tireless and often overlooked work that these organizers are doing.”
