Marnie Stern is pleased to announce a North American tour in support of her upcoming self-titled release, which will be available October 5th on Kill Rock Stars. After a few Northeast and Canadian dates in early October, Stern will embark on a full US tour at the end of the month.
Marnie Stern the album mirrors Marnie Stern, the woman. Birthed during a challenging period in her life, the self-titled Marnie Stern is a compendium of life stories both bitter and sweet.
From ballads to her signature pop guitar-tapping style, Stern and long-time co-conspirator Zach Hill have churned out (for lack of a better word) an enormous album that will further cement Stern as a rising star in today’s progressive music landscape. Stern also enlists the bass talents of psych-rock Canadian musician Matthew Flegel (of the band Women) and up-and-coming mixer Lars Stalfors (Mars Volta, Funeral Party) resulting in Stern stepping up her sonic game and revealing a mature and more focused side of herself.
Stern will be joined on tour by drummer Vincent Rogers (Tera Melos), guitarist Joseph Tirabassi (The Darlings), and bassist Nithin Kalvakota.
