Owen (Mike Kinsella) Shares 2021 Tour Dates

Owen (Mike Kinsella) is excited to announce 2021 tour dates in support of the new album The Avalanche, out now on Polyvinyl Record Co. The shows are the first live and in-person gigs for Owen since the release of the new album, which came out this past summer in 2020. After having it all taken away from me for over a year,” says Kinsella, “I realize just how much I’ve taken traveling, and playing in front of people, and spending time with old friends and complete strangers for granted, and I can’t wait to fully appreciate every aspect of it again.” A full list of upcoming tour dates can be found below.

Owen has been anything but complacent during the time off the road. Today Kinsella shares the wide release of his cover of The 1975’s “Me”. The song was recorded by him while in quarantine using only his phone, and originally appeared on the Bandcamp only Polyvinyl Record Co. benefit compilation, Stay Home. The hauntingly beautiful cover finds Kinsella adding a backbone of acoustic strumming in his signature style, giving the song a more stripped-down feel while showcasing the emotionally powerful lyrics found on the original. The tour announcement also follows last month’s surprise release of The Avalanche Remixed. A remix album of every song on the original with contributions from Jay Som, Thao Nguyen, NNAMDÏ, Now, Now, Norman Brannon, and Hrishikesh Hirway among others.
