Monsters Of Folk Tour

Monsters of Folk began as folklore of sorts, when James, Oberst, Ward and Mogis did their first run of shows together in 2004, affectionately known amongst friends and crew as the “Monsters of Folk Tour.” While entertaining audiences coast to coast, the foursome vowed to make their way to a studio at some point after the tour’s completion. Instead, the songsmiths went on to individually release some of rock music’s most exciting and essential albums of the last five years – Bright Eyes’ I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning & Cassadaga; My Morning Jacket’s Z & Evil Urges; M. Ward’s Post War andHold Time. Never ones to forget their promise, when downtime presented itself, they convened in the studio multiple times over two years, with Mogisat the helm of their first recorded effort. The result is being heralded as one of the year’s most impressive debut albums.

Praise for Monsters of Folk….

”…Monsters of Folk yoke together a quartet of folk-minded rockers at the top of their game…[and] create something that’s often greater than the sum of its parts.” (4 stars) – Rolling Stone

“…a sonic touchstone for every band who features more than one guy who thinks he can sing…the harmonies are groundbreaking. Goosebump territory. The amalgam of their voices mixed with the musical breathing room creates an intimacy not heard since Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young. It’s a stunning record – cohesive and consistent and ambitious for how much ground it covers.” – Esquire

“Monsters of Folk live up to their hype and then some.” – Billboard
