Today, preeminent American rock band Gov’t Mule have announced their Spring Tour 2018. Comprised of 13 dates, the headline tour kicks off on April 18th in Bethlehem, PA and will take the band to major cities along the east coast before heading south for their always-anticipated show during Jazz Fest at the Saenger Theatre in New Orleans. Pre-sale for these dates will begin Wednesday, February 7th at 12pm EST and will go on-sale Friday, February 9th at 10am local time. Full tour routing below. Please visit www.Mule.net for ticketing details.
Gov’t Mule is touring behind the release of their acclaimed 10th studio album Revolution Come… Revolution Go [Fantasy Records]. PRESS HERE to listen. Spanning rock, blues, soul, jazz and country, the album won over fans and critics alike and, upon its release, shot up the rock charts, racked up over 1.5 million streams, and nabbed the band their highest-selling debut week ever. Their most diverse offering to date, Revolution Come…Revolution Go showcases the band's evocative songwriting, incendiary playing, cleverly-crafted songs and timely lyrical commentary. While Gov't Mule's storytelling has always been inspired in part by American struggles and experiences, Revolution Come... Revolution Go finds the band's finger directly on the pulse of our very divided political climate. The band began recording the album on Election Day 2016, and the songs continue to be more timely than ever, poignantly capturing the tension and emotions felt by Americans regardless of political affiliation. These lyrical observations are threaded together with a resounding message of unity.
Gov’t Mule – GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend Warren Haynes [vocals, guitar], Matt Abts [drums], Danny Louis [keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals], and Jorgen Carlsson [bass] – has galvanized a global fan base with their music and improvisational virtuosity, leading them to be recognized as one of the most timeless, revered and active bands in the world whose spot amongst rock titans remains unshakable.
PRESS HERE to watch the band perform a powerful rendition of “Stone Cold Rage” from the album on Conan.
