Mountain Goats
 
A few days ago, the brilliant folk lyricist John Darnielle and his band, the Mountain Goats, released a new track off of their upcoming LP, Transcendental Youth. Now, the the band has announced that it will embark on a fall tour in support of that October 2 release. After a few special dates—one of which is a covers and rarities set at the Hopscotch Music Festival in Raleigh, NC—the band will hit the road with special guest Matthew E. White, who helped write the horn arrangements for Transcendental Youth. For a live re-creation of the new album, White has agreed to lend his horn section to the Mountain Goats on the tour. Check out the dates for the very special tour below.
