Evangelicals Announce Fall Tour, Refrain from Appearing on EWTN

One of my favorite things to do around 3 AM is watch televangelists on EWTN (Eternal Word Television Network, for those not hip to the lingo). Overly excited folks are always entertaining, but the fervor those guys get from the good lord is especially ace. To awkwardly transition into the point of this story, “Midnight Vignette” from Evangelicals’ second record, The Evening Descends (TMT Review), was one of my favorite songs of last year. No matter how you look at it, evangelicals get a thumbs up in my book.

Only one kind of Evangelicals is going on tour, though, and it’s the band. Good news for psych-rock fans, bad news for Jesus fans, I suppose. Anyway, Oklahoma’s other favorite sons are hitting the road, starting with a hometown Halloween show and charging through November. Word has it they’ll be premiering some new material from their forthcoming new album on these dates, most of which will be opened by Tallahassee’s Holiday Shores
