My Morning Jacket are going on tour this summer, the Jim James-led band announced Monday.
The Kentucky-bred group, whose last album was 2015’s The Waterfall, will be touring the U.S. from late June to mid-August, with guests like the Record Company, Margo Price, Gary Clark Jr., Jaw Gems, and the Districts hopping on as guests along the way.
Each ticket purchased will contribute a dollar toward The Waterfall Project, the band’s effort to support and promote “actions, big and small, for positive change in the world.” In 2016, the project focused on “supporting and amplifying the work of” the Everytown for Gun Safety Support Fund, the Fairness Campaign, and the Healthcare Now! Education Fund.
My Morning Jacket also released a new song titled “Magic Bullet” in 2016 that touched on violence in America and echoed the Waterfall Project’s call for positive change.
“We hope you enjoy this song that basically says there can be a solution,” they wrote at the time. “But none of us can do it alone. We have to get together.”
