The tour will be a musical journey through the classics, with M. WARD treating us to tunes from the legendary “Transfiguration of Vincent.” Trust us, this album is a blues-inspired Americana masterpiece that has stood the test of time and continues to captivate audiences worldwide.

M. WARD’s latest album, “Supernatural Thing” (Anti Records, 2023), will also be making an appearance on the tour. And let us tell you, it’s got some seriously exciting collaborations with the likes of First Aid Kit, Neko Case, and Shovels & Rope.

Joining the band for this magical journey is the much-celebrated FOLK BITCH TRIO. These musical geniuses bonded with M. WARD earlier this year, and the combination of their talents is truly something made in musical heaven.

BT from Love Police, the mastermind behind this awesome musical gathering, couldn’t contain his excitement, saying, “If anyone saw those shows earlier this year you will know we couldn’t stop this party. Matt allowed us to put together a local band for him, they were amazing, they bonded, they rocked, they rolled, they are even touring Europe together later this year. Folk Bitch Trio also played some shows, and the combo all just worked so they’re comin’ too. WA, South Oz and Tassie are gonna get the vibes, as well as hitting Sydney and Melbourne for some encore performances. Good fucking times.”

And we totally agree with BT, it’s going to be epic! Hailing from Portland, Oregon, M. WARD is a prolific singer-songwriter and guitarist known for his mesmerizing folky/bluesy tunes. Whether you know him from the enchanting “Transfiguration of Vincent,” his collaboration with Zooey Deschanel in She and Him, or as a member of the indie supergroup Monsters of Folk, M. WARD’s talent is undeniable.
