The Microphones announce first tour in 18 years

Microphones tour dates

The Microphones are touring for the first time in 18 years. After releasing last year’s The Microphones in 2020, Phil Elverum has announced a proper tour in support of that album—which will include a complete performance of that 40-minute composition at each date. The tour kicks off in spring of 2022—check out those dates below.

Elverum says in a statement, “We, the band called ‘the Microphones,’ are planning to go on a tour playing concerts in some North American towns for a few weeks in the spring of 2022. This will be the first ‘Microphones’ tour in 18 years, but as listeners to our last record (Microphones in 2020) will have hopefully heard, this doesn’t mean much. This has always been a project steering toward present-moment raw wound engagement, disappointing the nostalgics, splashing into the unfamiliar. It’s not a reunion (nothing to reunite) and it’s not commemorative. It’s a living thing. We’re playing our one long song, F#m and D for a super long time, and inviting everyone to come get thumped by it. Who knows what else will happen?”
