Alternative country group Son Volt will embark on an extensive North American tour in 2022, they announced Monday, September 20. The 35 date race kicks off Jan. 14 with a performance at the Outland Ballroom in Springfield, Mo.
In July, Son Volt comes out Electro melody, their 10th studio album, born from the isolation of conductor Jay Farrar during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic. The record, which takes its name from the vintage amplifiers of the 1940s and 1950s, finds the group exploring themes of social unrest and long-standing relationships.
Farrar launched Son Volt in 1994, after the disbandment of Uncle Tupelo, an alternative country group he co-founded with Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy and who is often considered one of the forerunners of American music. . The year 2020 marked the 25th anniversary of Trace, Son Volt’s beloved debut album, and they had originally planned to tour in honor of the occasion.
Now, however, Son Volt’s 2022 tour will take them across the country, with stops scheduled in Los Angeles, California; Brooklyn, New York; Salt Lake City, Utah, and everywhere in between. Old Salt Union’s Jesse Farrar will serve as opener for each show.
