My Morning Jacket
We are pleased to announce My Morning Jacket's Fall 2006 Tour! Pre-sales begin on Thursday, September 14th at 12:00 pm local venue time for select dates.

MMJ will also release Okonokos, their new double live album with JamBase regular Dave Vann's photos! The release features 21 live tracks on two discs and will be available on September 26th on ATO/RCA Records. Pre-order the album and receive a free download of "Strangulation" (Live).

OKONOKOS
Following the release of their fourth critically acclaimed full-length album, Z, My Morning Jacket readies to deliver what is surely to become their quintessential body of work – two discs and a concert film. They contain their most dynamic, otherworldly compositions to date, presented in their finest form. Live. Okonokos is a creative concept conceived by Jim James, and it is as much a question as it is an answer. It is an enigma wrapped around a riddle. Okonokos is whatever you want it to be.

Belying the myth that live albums tend to highlight the disparity between it and its studio counterpart, Okonokos, mixed by Michael Brauer (Bob Dylan, Coldplay) and mastered by pre-eminent engineer Bob Ludwig, delves into the realm of raw, rich, elevated sound, while proudly staying true to its roots. The treasury begins with "Wordless Chorus," one of the Jacket's captivating traditional introductions. A glacially expansive "One Big Holiday" grips you, throws you into a trance-inspiring guitar riff frenzy, quiets down, and leads you through another transcendent moment. The collection continues to mesmerize through the second disc, and closes with a spirited "Mahgeeta."

I have heard a few of their pre z albums
I dig it cause it is different
But it doesnt always grab me
It will be nice to hear the live album before I travel to far to catch a show
they do always get good vibes for their live shows

Alright! Closin' it out in Boston! MMJ is one of the most exciting bands out there. Although, they may have gotten a bit too creative last summer playing with the Boston Pops (not as good as anticipated) I'm psyched to be able to see the plugged in and turned up.

You really should add a Colorado date. I know you have a fan base out here. Don't forget to schedule a Red Rocks show for next summer. It will be incredible!!!

Nasty tour, The Slip is extremely underappreciated. My Morning Jacket has really good song structure (not really a jam band though, which is perfectly fine by me).

I'm super stoked that MMJ isn't comming anywhere near the west coast. They couldn't possibly make me any happier.

Great news! Being from Louisville, MMJ holds a special place in my musical heart. I'm a little disappointed that the Slip isn't going to be here as they are one of my faves, but for those of you not familiar with the 'Ville music scene, Wax Fang is one ass-kicking band that shouldn't be missed. Maybe I'll have to catch the Louisville and Indy shows so I can get the best of both worlds. Bring on the Jacket! Big ups to the Louisville scene!
