Laura Jane Grace of Against Me!, Tim Kasher of Cursive, and Anthony Green of Circa Survive are teaming up for a tour together this spring. It’s called “The Carousel Tour,” and about it, Laura says, “We wanted to do something different with the Carousel Tour, something more collaborative than your usual show. So while each of us will have our own set times, these aren’t solo sets. We’ve challenged each other to blur the lines and join in on each other’s songs and to bring other players onto the stage with us each night. We don’t want any show on the tour to feel routine or the same as the night before. We’re trying to lean into the unpredictability of these current times while manifesting inspiration and unhinged joy.”

They have killer support lined up, too, from Oceanator, Mikey Erg and Home is Where on select dates. The shows run through May in the US, and you can see all dates below.

There’s an Asbury Park date on May 6 at The Stone Pony with Mikey Erg, and an NYC show at on May 9 at Irving Plaza with Home is Where. Tickets to those, and all dates, go on sale Friday, March 4 at 10 AM local time.

Laura released a new EP, At War with the Silverfish, last year (order on clear vinyl), which follows her 2020 album Stay Alive (order on lapis lazuli blue vinyl). She also appears on Tim’s new solo album, Middling Age, which is due out April 15 via 15 Passenger/Thirty Something Records.

Anthony has a new EP on the way with Circa Survive (who are making some of the best music of their career right now), A Dream About Death.

Oceanator also has a new album, Nothing’s Ever Fine, on the way (pre-order on pink vinyl), while Home is Where released their excellent new album, I Became Birds, in 2021.
