Jason Isbell Announces Summer Tour

Jason Isbell has announced tour dates in support of the July 17 release of his new album, Something More Than Free.

Isbell will be touring extensively with his band The 400 Unit, featuring Derry Deborja (Keys), Chad Gamble (drums), Jimbo Hart (bass) and Sadler Vaden (guitar).

The tour will include stops in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Seattle and Portland (see tour dates below).

Tickets for a four night stand at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium October 23-26 sold out in 72 hours.

Pre-sale tickets for the tour will be available at www.jasonisbell.com/presale on Wednesday, May 6 with regular on-sale beginning Friday, May 8. Pre-order Something More Than Free with iTunes now and receive an instant download of “24 Frames” at http://smarturl.it/SMTF.

Something More Than Free is Isbell’s most sonically diverse album to date. It features his Southern-inspired vignettes of working class men, women and traditions that permeate 11 new songs of pure honestly and authenticity.

The LP was recorded at the Sound Emporium in Nashville, TN and produced by Dave Cobb, who also produced Southeastern, which went on to sell over 150,000 copies. On April 24, Isbell and his wife Amanda Shires performed a beautiful version of Warren Zevon’s ”Multineer” for David Letterman on The Late Show. Watch below:
