Published Jan 19, 2011Last month, we received the exciting news that Mountain Goats had recorded a new album, All Eternals Deck, which includes four songs produced by death metal legend Erik Rutan (Morbid Angel, Hate Eternal). Now, we have the details of an upcoming tour, which will take songwriter John Darnielle and his bandmates around North America this spring.
The outing is entirely based in the eastern half of the continent. Along with 15 U.S. shows, the group will play one Canadian date at Toronto's Opera House on April 3. See the schedule below.
All Eternals Deck is due out on March 29 via Merge. You can read up on the album details, including the tracklist, right here.
You can also download the new single "Damn These Vampires" over here courtesy of The Music Slut. This mid-tempo piano track was recorded with returning producer John Congleton (Modest Mouse, Black Mountain) and will come as a bit of a let down to anyone who was hoping that All Eternals Deck would be a front-to-back metal album.
