Low released their new, Jeff Tweedy-produced album, The Invisible Way, earlier this year and have been on tour in support of it, having already played NYC back in March. The group have since expanded their tour, and it now includes a short Northeast run in June with some interesting support from Soul Coughing frontman Mike Doughty. Those dates include a NYC show happening on June 19 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (4/19) at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (4/17) at noon.

Regarding the pairing of Low and Mike Doughty, a press release notes:

The pairing was inspired by a fan’s tweet, who suggested the two pair up for his “dream show.’ Both active on Twitter, Low and Mike engaged in the tweet and soon decided it was high time for a rematch as both artists had toured with each other in the past (during Doughty’s time with Soul Coughing).

Low frontman Alan Sparhawk says of the pairing: “We are excited to be doing shows this June with our friend Mike Doughty. We first met when his band Soul Coughing brought us on tour years ago. I had heard them. They were like nothing else going on, every piece of the picture was fresh and on the edge – crazy/deep rhythm, samples/noise, word-play and melody. Their influence and friendship over the years has been priceless and dear to us, and Mike’s lyrical/vocal grace has always been a level to which I measure and aspire to. The vocal does matter and it can be awesome.”

Mike Doughty offers this: “The first time I heard Low, I played before them at CBGB in 1993. I remember leaning up against the wall of the dressing room, behind the stage, and feeling their warm, huge, slow sound vibrating the building. Soon after that, I contacted their producer, Mark Kramer from Shimmy Disc, and made my first solo album, “Skittish,” with an explicit mission of replicating the reverbed, dreamy sound of their earliest recordings. Low and Soul Coughing toured together a couple of years after that; we became fast friends, and I remain a massive fan.”

Low also recently made a video for “Just Make It Stop” from their new album. You can watch that video, and check out all upcoming tour dates listed below.
