Jon & I will do a run of duo shows in the US in Jan./Feb. to start the celebrations of our 30th year as a band. This will be followed by DELUXE REISSUES of our classic 90s albums via OMNIVORE … and then we are planning to hit the road later in the year with Mike Musburger & Dave Fox to play as the ‘Frosting’ era Posies. I’m sure you’ll see other Posies alumni here and there as well, no one is going to be left out of the party.
SO, tix on all these shows are limited. We will be doing material from *four* different decades in these shows. Good grief! Special guests…. mayhem… harmonies…

The Posies’ Ken Stringfellow, Mercury Rev’s Jonathan Donahue and Grasshopper, and Midlake’s Jesse Chandler will be touring together as Tears of Silver, playing selections from their different catalogs, plus a few covers and maybe a new song or two. For the tour, they’ve recorded an EP, including covers of Big Star’s “Nighttime” and Bread’s “Down on My Knees.” You can stream the Big Star cover below.
Much like The Posies’ tour last year, Tears of Silver will be playing unconventional, intimate venues in the cities they’re visiting, and the venue locations will only be revealed the day before the show. The tour starts September 12 in Baltimore, MD and wraps up October 8 in Pittsburgh. There’s currently no Northeast dates, unfortunately. Tickets are on sale now and all tour dates are listed below.
From Brooklyn Vegan, where you can listen to the new songs.

After a triumphant run of dates across Europe in March & April the newly revitalised trio-format band head back to Europe in October, following a 27-date run of secret shows in the US.
The band have always been exploring, growing and 2016 sees them continuing in that vein. None of US shows were in conventional music venues, with the location only revealed to ticket holders not more than 24 hours in advance of each show. The band are now touring as a trio, with no bass player, and Solid States collaborator Frankie Siragusa on drums. New album Solid States was not recorded in the usual band-in-a-room manner. Stringfellow and Auer sent song ideas back and forth online, writing and largely recording the album separately – but collaboratively – in their home studios.
The autumn tour starts in Manchester on 27th October, ending on 9th November in Diksmuide, Belgium. Solid States is out now Lojinx CD, digital and heavyweight vinyl LP.
