Phosphorescent Continue Taking It Easy on Enormous World Tour, Play Toronto

Phosphorescent Continue <i>Taking It Easy</i> on Enormous World Tour, Play Toronto
Phosphorescent's Matthew Houck must be one laid-back dude. Not only is his indie country group as smooth as ever, but they named their latest album Here's to Taking It Easy. The real test of his ability to chillax, however, will be when he takes his band on a massive world tour this summer.

The enormous run of dates kicked off earlier this month in Europe. The tour runs until September, with a single Canadian show on July 10 at Toronto's Horseshow Tavern. There are days off before and after that show, so don't be surprised if a Montreal appearance is added.

Sounds a little stressful, but we're pretty sure the Matthew McConaughey of indie rock can keep cool through the whole thing. Phosphorescent dropped Here's to Taking It Easy via Dead Oceans on May 11. Album track "The Mermaid Parade" can be streamed below.
