Ken Stringfellow’s Tears of Silver Announces EP, US Tour

Tears Of Silver
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.
