Denver, CO-based ensemble The Motet, who will release their ninth studio album, Death Or Devotion on January 25, have announced their first round of touring plans for 2019. Beginning January 11 in Aspen, CO, the new dates will take the seven-piece (Dave Watts [drums], Joey Porter [keys], Garrett Sayers [bass], Ryan Jalbert [guitar], Lyle Divinsky [vocals], Drew Sayers [sax] and Parris Fleming [trumpet]) across the country throughout January, February and March. The Motet will stop in Salt Lake City, Seattle, Portland, Berkeley, Charlotte, Richmond, Washington, DCAtlanta and Nashville, among other cities, as well as shows in Boston, Philadelphia and Brooklyn alongside fellow funk band Galactic. Full routing can be found below and ticket info can be found HERE.

For almost 20 years, The Motet have been fusing boisterous badass funk and swaggering soul with a thought-provoking inventiveness to create something truly unique. The band is continuing to evolve and further define their distinctive sound with the killer collection of feel good grooves found on Death Or Devotion (due out via their own label).  The upcoming album features the first track “Whacha Gonna Bring,” a deep pocket heavy groove which can be heard now below.

Stay tuned for more exciting album announcements in the coming weeks!
