Prepare to be charmed, Father John Misty has announced a headlining show date at The Roxy on Monday, February 9, 2015 with Guy Blakeslee (of The Entrance Band). The new show date comes with the announcement of Father John Misty’s forthcoming new album, I Love You, Honeybear which is set for release on February 10 via Sub Pop. The new record is the follow-up to Father John Misty’s internationally lauded 2012 album, Fear Fun.
Below is an excerpt from Father John Misty describing his new album:
I Love You, Honeybear was recorded all through 2013 to 2014 in Los Angeles with producer Jonathan Wilson, who I also recorded and produced 2012’s Fairly Fun with. There’s a case to be made that it sounds and acts a bit like solo-era John Lennon, Scott Walker, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, and Dory Previn, while taking more than a few cues from Woody Allen, Kurt Vonnegut, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Muhammad Ali. It has a decidedly more soulful presence than Fear Fun, due in no small part to the fact that I am truly singing my ass off all over this motherfucker. The album is really characterized by the scope and ambition of the arrangements. Nearly every tune is augmented by something special, be it orchestral strings, a mariachi band, questionable electronic drum solos, ragtime jazz combos, soul singers, or what have you. I’m pretty sure there’s a sitar in there somewhere. Blammo.
Tickets to Father John Misty with Guy Blakeslee at The Roxy are priced at $27 and the show is all-ages. Tickets will go on sale Friday, November 14th at 10 a.m.
