Gov't Mule have announced a summer tour. The tour will feature a number of dates with The Magpie Salute, in addition to a handful of dates with The Avett Brothers.

During their six dates with The Avett Brothers, Gov't Mule will perform Dark Side of the Mule, a set of their re-interpretations of some of the most beloved tracks in the Pink Floyd catalog. The band has only played their Dark Side of the Mule set twice, Halloween 2008 at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, MA and at the Mountain Jam Festival in 2015.

The band is touring behind their most recent album, 2017's Revolution Come...Revolution Go. You can check out their full itinerary below.

"You never know where an album is going to head until you get into it,” Haynes told Guitar World about Revolution Come... Revolution Go last August. “I just found myself writing in a lot of different directions and all of them seemed to work together especially when interpreted by the band and our collective personality."

"You have to work up the songs and see which ones feel like they want to go together because the album concept is still very important to me and I don’t think I’ll ever change my view on that no matter how popular single tracks become. I’ll keep assuming or hoping that most people will agree with that approach.”
