Tyler Childers confirms 2018 tour dates

Due to popular demand, Tyler Childers will return to select U.S. cities in early 2018. The newly confirmed dates extend Childers’ sold-out fall/winter tour and include stops at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, Philadelphia’s World Café Live, D.C.’s Rock & Roll Hotel, Boston’s The Sinclair and Pittsburgh’s The Club at Stage AE. Tickets go on-sale this Friday, November 10. See below for full details.

The performances celebrate Childers’ acclaimed new album, Purgatory, which recently debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart with over 6,000 equivalent albums sold. The album also landed at #17 on the Country Albums chart and #4 on the Americana/Folk Albums chart. Out now on Hickman Holler Records via Thirty Tigers (purchase here), the 10-song album was recorded at Nashville’s The Butcher Shoppe studio and was produced by Sturgill Simpson and David Ferguson. Watch Childers perform the album track, “Whitehouse Road,” here.

In addition to Childers (vocals, acoustic guitar), the album features a variety of world-renowned musicians including Simpson (acoustic guitar, background vocals), Stuart Duncan (fiddle), Miles Miller (drums, background vocals) and Russ Pahl (acoustic guitar, electric guitar, pedal steel, Jew’s harp) among others

Of the album, the Lawrence Country, KY native comments, “I am extremely grateful for Miles Miller introducing me to Sturgill Simpson, and also for Sturgill and David Ferguson taking the time to work with me. I think we both wanted to make an album for east KY, and I reckon that’s what we did. It’s not about rock, or grass, or country…it’s just hollerin’ in the mountains and stirring shit up! The band Sturgill and David put together was an all-star cast, and an honor to work with and learn from. I hope to do it again, but once is more than most are blessed with. For that I am thankful.”
