Indie-rock guitarist and singer Mac DeMarco has a new album in the works, and he’ll be spending plenty of time on the road later this year in promotion of the forthcoming studio project. DeMarco took to his Facebook on Tuesday morning to announce a run of upcoming international tour dates, which are scheduled to begin with his appearances at both weekends of Coachella in mid-April. As for his forthcoming studio album, Mac also revealed that the follow up to 2017’s This Old Dog is scheduled to arrive at some point in 2019 on his own record label, although he didn’t go into any further detail on the upcoming project.
The first U.S. leg of his 2019 world tour will pick up in early May with shows across the western U.S. in cities including Portland, Seattle, San Francisco, and Big Sur, to name a few. He’ll then head over to Europe and the U.K. for a brief run of festival appearances in Spain, Netherlands, and London heading into June, before returning Stateside for his scheduled appearance at Bonnaroo on June 16th. He’ll then head back overseas for an additional pair of festival performances in Europe heading into July.
The second portion of DeMarco’s U.S. run will pick up on August 6th with an outdoor show at the Prospect Park Bandshell in Brooklyn. The next scheduled show will not be for almost two more months when he returns to the road on September 20th for the final announced leg, which includes performances in select major cities along the eastern and central U.S. The tour will come to an end following a show at Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on October 6th.
DeMarco also spent much of last fall also touring around the world, both as a solo act and with a full band on select dates. Since the release of This Old Dog back in 2017, Mac has spent his time touring with and sharing recorded covers of psych-rock heroes The Flaming Lips, in addition to spending some quality time with Stranger Things actor Finn Wolfhard.
Tickets for the newly announced shows will begin general on-sale this Friday, January 18th, at 11 a.m. EST. Fans can click here for more info.
