Kurt Vile recently announced a 22-show tour of North America. This time, however, Vile will be performing without his longtime band, the Violators. It will be Vile’s first solo tour in a decade. Supporting him will be Welsh artist Cate Le Bon, who released her fifth studio album, Reward, this past May.

After co-founding The War on Drugs in 2005, Vile embarked on a solo career that has seen him produce eight studio albums. His highest charting album in the US is 2015’s b’lieve I’m goin down … That was followed two years later by Lotta Sea Lice, a collaboration with Courtney Barnett. His most recent record is 2018’s Bottle It In, which includes the singles “Loading Zones” and “Bassacckwards.”
