Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros hit the road yesterday for an extensive run of live dates.
The trek kicked off last night in Ojai, CA at Libbey Bowl for a special performance to benefit the Ojai Valley Community Nursery School. The tour will wrap up on October 5, 2012 at Crossroads in Kansas City, MO. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will support for most dates.
The band is touring in support of their May release Here, which debuted at #1 on the Independent Music Chart and #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart the week after its release. Relix Magazine hailed it as "an album full of undeniable folk-rock hooks, gospel overtones, infectious lyrics, orchestral swells and a whole lot of love," and Entertainment Weekly praised the album for its "lovely troubadour melodies."
Having recently wrapped a nearly sold-out European tour, the band is also putting the final touches on the follow up to Here, which will be released in early 2013 via Community Music.
