Heron Oblivion — the psychedelic folk rock band with singer Meg Baird and members of Comets On Fire and Assemble Head In Sunburst Sound — released their excellent self-titled debut album on Sub Pop earlier this month, and now they’ve added more dates to their upcoming tour.

In addition to the band’s Brooklyn show on May 28 at Union Pool, they’ll also play a Jersey City show on May 26 at Monty Hall. Since we last spoke, Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band were added as the opener for the East Coast run, including the NYC show, but not the NJ show (no one else was announced for that one yet either). Tickets for both are on sale now.

Heron Oblivion also play Austin’s Levitation festival and more. Updated dates are listed, with a stream of their album, below.

Chris Forsyth & the Solar Motel Band have other dates too, including a Brooklyn show with local staples Oneida on July 9 at Knitting Factory. Tickets for that show will be on sale soon. They released a new album, The Rarity of Experience, earlier this month via No Quarter. Stream three tracks, with their list of tour dates, below.
