Ty Segall announces acoustic tour, throws shade toward former friend electricity

Watch out, electricity, Ty Segall’s done with you. In past years, the unison of Ty Segall and electricity seemed an unbreakable bond. It was electricity that provided the distorted fuzz that powers the majority of Segall’s material. Yet, somehow, a rift (not a riff) has formed between the two formerly inseparable chums. Ty’s going on tour and he’s not bringing a drop of that electricity with him.

What could lead a man to a string of acoustic shows? Did electricity sleep with someone in Ty Segall’s family? Did Ty Segall sleep with a lightning bolt? The public may never truly get an answer. All that can be said is that the feud is likely to last through June, in which the majority of these acoustic shows will take place.

Segall will take this whole acoustic concept on a test run in April for one Los Angeles show. Presumably, he’ll spend May stewing over whether he can truly leave electricity behind. Personally, I think once this all blows over, these two crazy kids are gonna be alright.
