The Mountain Goats have confirmed a string of headlining west coast tour dates in support of their new album All Eternals Deck, including a show at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on June 23rd. The band is also scheduled to play Lollapalooza in Chicago in August, as well as several dates with Bright Eyes.
All Eternals Deck was released last month to resounding critical acclaim. SPIN praised frontman John Darnielle as "indie rock's greatest lyricist" on the cover of their April issue, while Rolling Stone touted him as an "ace word-slinger." Pitchfork hailed the "revelatory" album as a "career highlight" for Darnielle.
All Eternals Deck is available on CD, LP and digital download in the Merge store.
