Sometimes you just get a feeling about people. Many years ago, I regularly caught Neko Case play shows with one of her early bands, Maow. I could have never predicted the career trajectory and success that Case has earned since then; but there was always something about her, even back then. Intelligent, outspoken, and funny, it has been no surprise whatsoever to see that she has become one of the most consistent and beloved singer/songwriter/producer triple-threats around. And damned if she doesn’t seem to just keep expanding her reach more and more.

“Case” in point: she’s just announced a September headlining leg to her already-large 2018 touring schedule. Case will play the Sasquatch Fest on May 27 before immediately heading out on a lengthy road trip with Ray LaMontagne, which sees the pair of heart-tearing troubadours travelling America together. After a brief respite, she’ll head out for those September sojourns with Thao of the Get Down Stay Down as support. There is also a bunch of Euro dates booked in the fall. (And relax, hosers! Everyone’s favo(u)rite American Canuck sympathizer will play Toronto in September. Montreal, Vancouver, Sober Island, Ball’s Falls, and Saint-Louis-du-Ha! Ha!, you’re shit out o’ luck this time around!)

These tours are in support of Case’s new album, Hell-On, which is out June 1 on Anti-. Stream the video for “Bad Luck” down below; and for tour info and album pre-order links, head to Case’s site, where — as the kids now say — “you can get all the feels” (the kids still say that, right?).
