My Morning Jacket are suiting up for a tour starting early January. Allowing themselves only a couple days to recover from New Year’s festivities, the Kentucky group will hit the road starting in Nashville and move on through the Southern and Midwestern states.
The Jackets join in the NME Awards Show fun February 5 in London when they, along with Junior Senior and Ima Robot, rock The Astoria. Other NME Award Shows taking place around the same week will feature Ryan Adams, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Thrice, Coheed & Cambria, Hundred Reasons, and Million Dead.
According to the band’s Web site, additional shows are expected to be added to the tour If you go to the band’s website, they’re offering tickets to U.S. shows in an effort “to reduce the high surcharges from other online ticket vendors and to offer more convenient ticketing options.” They also have presale information.
The increasingly high-profile group signed with Dave Matthews’ ATO Records last fall and released their latest full-length album, It Still Moves, this September.
