Josh Ritter confirms fall tour dates with Jason Isbell + co-writes songs off Bob Weir’s new album Blue Mountain

Josh Ritter confirms fall tour dates supporting Jason Isbell. The dates extend Ritter’s ongoing North American tour with stops in Atlanta, Birmingham, Louisville, New Orleans, Des Moines and more. This extensive run supports Ritter’s acclaimed album, Sermon On The Rocks (Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers). See below for complete tour dates.

In addition, Ritter has co-written many of the songs on Bob Weir’s highly anticipated new album, Blue Mountain, while writing the score and contributing several songs for John Krasinski’s film The Hollars, out on August 26.

Produced by Ritter and Trina Shoemaker (Queens of the Stone Age, Emmylou Harris), Sermon on the Rocks was recorded over two weeks at New Orleans’ The Parlor Recording Studio and features Matt Barrick from The Walkmen on drums, Zachariah Hickman on bass, Josh Kaufman on guitar and Sam Kassirer on piano.

Of his inspiration behind Sermon on the Rocks, Ritter comments, “I wanted to play messianic oracular honky-tonk.”
