Father John Misty appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night to perform "Ballad of the Dying Man" from his new album Pure Comedy (out this week via Sub Pop). You can watch that below. He also released an edit of the LP's centerpiece, "Leaving L.A." on over the weekend that cut the song down from 13 minutes to less than three, removing most of its most scathing lyrics (which may have been his idea of an April Fools Joke), and also gave a highly theatrical performance of the LP's title track on a German television show. check those out as well, below.

You can soon catch Father John Misty on tour, including a sold-out show at Brooklyn's Kings Theatre on May 10. That show is with Vampire Weekend drummer Chris Tomson's new-ish band Dams of the West. He's just added a second show in the borough, playing Brooklyn Steel the next night (5/11) with Adam Green. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, April 14 at 10 AM.

There's also a show just outside of NYC at the Capitol Theatre on September 14 with Phosphorescent opening (tickets).

Other dates on FJM's tour are with Jenny Lewis, Weyes Blood, Hamilton Leithauser, and more. All dates are listed below.
