Former Dr. Dog drummer Juston Stens and his band, The Get Real Gang, along with current Figgs bassist and songwriter Pete Donnelly (and his band, The Wise Easy) have announced a tour of the Southeastern US this month.
The two Philadelphia musicians, both best-known for their long-running bands, are both supporting new albums. Stens’ Share The Road features songs co-written with friends as he made a cross-country motorcycle trip, after leaving Dr. Dog. These friends include members of Wilco, Spoon, and Giant Cloud, as well as a couple of his former Dr. Dog bandmates.
Donnelly released Face The Bird this past summer and has been touring solo, off-and-on, ever since. The album features a collaboration with Shelby Lynne and takes The Figgs’ guitar-pop in an eclectic new direction.
The tour kicks off November 13th. See the full list of dates after the jump.
