Ray LaMontagne To Be Backed By Members Of My Morning Jacket On Tour
Singer-songwriter Ray LaMontagne will soon embark on a 45-city tour in support of Ouroboros, a new studio album due March 4. LaMontagne has revealed that he will be backed by members of My Morning Jacket on the upcoming tour.
Here’s the full statement from Ray LaMontagne:
“I am very pleased to announce that the band for the upcoming “Ouroboros” Summer Tour will be Tommy Blankenship, Carl Broemel, Bo Koster, and Patrick Hallahan of My Morning Jacket.
We’ve been throwing this idea around for quite a few years now, and the stars have finally aligned. There has been such positive spiritual energy flowing throughout this entire project. From that first restless nights sleep when the album made itself clear to me, to the recording of the Album at La La Land Studio with Jim, to getting a call out of the blue ten months later that the Jacket boys wanted to back it up on the road.
There is some serious mojo surrounding this record and I think it’s going to be a very, very special run of shows”
Ray LaMontagne and the members of My Morning Jacket begin the tour at Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati on June 10. The tour is currently slated to run through late September. Ouroboros was produced by Ray and Jim James of My Morning Jacket. Stream the LP’s first single, “Hey, No Pressure”:
