Celebrated songwriters Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!, The Devouring Mothers), Tim Kasher (Cursive, The Good Life) and Anthony Green (Circa Survive, Saosin, The Sound of Animals Fighting) have announced “The Carousel Tour” for the Spring. The tour runs the entire month of May throughout the U.S.. Support on select dates will be provided by Oceanator, Mikey Erg and Home Is Where. Tickets for the tour will go on sale this Friday, March 4 at 10 a.m. local time, and a full listing of dates can be found below.
Grace had the following to share about the upcoming run and how the artists will be approaching each performance on the road, “We wanted to do something different with the Carousel Tour, something more collaborative than your usual show. So while each of us will have our own set times, these aren’t solo sets. We’ve challenged each other to blur the lines and join in on each other’s songs and to bring other players onto the stage with us each night. We don’t want any show on the tour to feel routine or the same as the night before. We’re trying to lean into the unpredictability of these current times while manifesting inspiration and unhinged joy”
Half recorded at Laura Jane Grace’s TinyQuietStudio in Chicago, IL and half recorded at Electric Eel in St. Louis, MO, and mixed by her Devouring Mothers bandmate Marc Hudson, At War With The Silverfish, Grace’s follow-up to her critically acclaimed solo album Stay Alive, finds the Emmy-nominated artist, musician and author in a range of stripped-back, poignant modes that amount to an honest and holistic account of our shared humanity. At War With The Silverfish is out now via Polyvinyl Record Co.
Tim Kasher, also of Cursive and The Good Life, recently announced his new solo album, Middling Age, which will be released on Friday, April 15 via 15 Passenger Records (Thirty Something Records in Europe), and shared lead single “I Don’t Think About You.” The album, an existentialist screed on mortality and loss, sees Kasher bringing his noted sense of empathy, humanity, and wit to a personal, deeply felt consideration of how it feels to be ‘middle aged,’ and the weight of the cumulative anxiety we collect as we grow older. Middling Age features contributions from friends and collaborators including Laura Jane Grace, Jeff Rosenstock, Jayson Gerycz (Cloud Nothings), Patrick Newbury and Megan Siebe of Cursive, and Macey Taylor (The Mystic Valley Band), among others. He is currently on the road with Cursive on a U.S. tour in support of Thursday.
Anthony Green is an American singer and musician from Doylestown, Pennsylvania. He is currently the lead singer of Circa Survive, Saosin and The Sound of Animals Fighting while also maintaining a solo career. He has released five full-length albums under his own name as well as releasing his first collection of Children’s Music as an EP titled Let’s Start a Band in 2020. There are plans for a new solo LP in 2022 as well. Green has also collaborated with artists such as Chino Moreno (Deftones), Nate Ruess (fun.), Grey, Avril Lavigne and more.
