Mister Heavenly Plots Fall Tour Behind Out of Love

Hot on the heels of a successful first leg of their US tour, Mister Heavenly have announced another string of dates through our fair country, beginning on November 4 at the First Unitarian Church in Philadelphia and ending on November 20 at The Mercury Lounge in New York City. This musical voyage is in support of their debut release, Out of Love, which hit the shelves of your local record store on August 16th. See below for a full list of tour dates.

Mister Heavenly is comprised of indie rock veterans Nick Thorburn (Islands/The Unicorns), Ryan Kattner (Man Man), and Joe Plummer (Modest Mouse). The band is at the forefront of “doom wop,” which is a state of mind rather than a nitpicky micro-genre. It was born from a shared love of 1950s vocal-based R&B classics by ensembles like the Penguins, the Platters, and the Moonglows, and also a fascination with ill-fated romance. The album title, Out of Love, is both a nod to passion as a motivator (“I did it out of love”) and also the absence or dissolution of same (“She fell out of love with me”): two seminal lyrical themes in the annals of pop music. As it happens, the actual Mister Heavenly song “Doom Wop” owes as much to grunge and art-punk as it does ’50s pop. When you mint your own style you can take such liberties.
