Father John Misty announces a fall tour through the forest, but not the mountains

Father John Misty announces a fall tour through the forest, but not the mountains

I saw Fleet Foxes once, and by the end of the show, everyone was crying. I wasn’t crying. I didn’t like that everyone was crying.

Maybe J. Tillman felt the same way, and maybe that’s partially why he struck out on his own and became Father John Misty. Maybe he’d had enough of everyone sobbing up a storm over strawberries in the summertime.

Or maybe not. In any case, the dark country tunes that comprise Fear Fun, Tillman’s first release as Father John Misty, have received glowing reviews all over the place — the album reached the #4 spot on the CMJ Top 200 chart and #1 on the FMQB charts. Father John Misty has performed on Letterman and Last Call with Carson Daly and covered The Flaming Lips’ “Do You Realize??” for The A.V. Club’s Undercover series, and he’s released videos for “Hollywood Forever Cemetery” and “Nancy From Now On” and “This Is Sally Hatchet,”, and, as far as I can tell, not a single tear has been shed.

After playing a couple late summer festivals, Father John Misty will be hitting the road for a fall tour, even making an appearance on two crazy cruise ships in December. He’s skipping over the Blue Ridge Mountains though, and not even coming close to Mykonos.
