Monsters Of Folk Announce Fall Tour

The all-star roots troupe of Conor Oberst, Jim James, M. Ward, and Mike Mogis finally let us sample their Monsters Of Folk project with the not very folky “Say Please” the other day. The self-titled LP is due 9/22 via Shangri-La music, which is good news that gets better with today’s announcement that the crew will convene for a fall tour through North America and Europe. The press release promises the quartet “will be switching instruments and trading roles throughout each show,” and that $1 from each ticket sold will benefit Air Traffic Control, “a resource for musicians’ philanthropic and social change work.” That’s nice.
