The Mountain Goats had a busy 2018 which included the live debut of a new song, a new EP, a covers EP, and more, and they've confirmed that they'll have more new music in 2019 too. They also announced a lengthy tour. Here's what John Darnielle says:

Good people of the Mountain Goatsmassive, we are pleased to report that we have sojourned for a season in the cave upon the hillside where the ancient crystals tremble; and have returned from thence with much news, of which you will all be soon made aware.

The first bit of this news is that we are going to tour like wild hounds.

The road beckons! See you there!

The tour includes NYC's Brooklyn Steel on April 30 (tickets) and Jersey City's White Eagle Hall on May 1 (tickets). The shows go on sale Friday (1/25) at 10 AM with an artist presale underway now.

The tour also hits DC, Boston, Toronto, Nashville, Chicago, Seattle, Vancouver, Portland, San Francisco, LA, and more. All dates are listed below.
