Mister Heavenly hit the road, cementing Ryan Kattner/Nick Thorburn as the indie pop world's Hope/Crosby

Ryan Kattner (of Man Man fame) and Nick Thorburn (of Unicorns/Islands/Human Highway/Reefer/Th’ Corn Gangg/probably something else fame) are more than buds. They are beyond buds; they are super buds. That is why they created Mister Heavenly, their project with original Modest Mouse drummer Joe Plummer. Sometimes, Michael Cera is there playing bass, but only if someone with a pure heart makes a wish to an enchanted fountain.

When super buds start super bands, they have to go on super road trips. It’s the law of the land, the law of the bud! To uphold the letter of the law, Mister Heavenly are going on one hell of a road trip. In fact, this road trip will be the road trip to end all road trips, as the band intends to go to every single place in North America. Unfortunately, such a trip is financially irresponsible at best and physically impossible at worst. As such, the band has tightened their focus to consist primarily of a string of November dates on the East Coast and a few in the Midwest. Sorry, other locations that exist. Further apologies go to all those making wishes to an enchanted fountain. It appears that you have stolen gold from a dying man, tainting your once-pure heart forever.
