Guided By Voices Tour

Guided By Voices has announced a 2014 US Tour that marks the first time they’re performing a full live slate in the states since 2012. The Ohio natives will tour the nation in support of their latest album, Cool Planet, which is their sixth studio release since reuniting in 2010. This year’s tour marks the tenth anniversary of their breakup, an event that was commemorated by multiple cities declaring a “Guided By Voices Day” on the day of their “last” performance. The first of 16 announced concert dates will be May 22 in Philadelphia at the Trocadero Theater, and other stops include The Black Cat in Washington, DC, and The Regency Ballroom in San Francisco.

Guided By Voices, centered around lead singer Robert Pollard and composed of multiple contributors over the years, made its mark on the American indie rock scene with its lo-fi recordings in the 1980s and 90s. Ushered back to the live stage by bands such as R.E.M. and Sonic Youth, Pollard and company made their mark on fans with a deep portfolio of songs that never stopped growing and an energy fueled by punk and progressive roots. They’ll be joined on this tour by bands that strike some similar chords with today’s fans, including Titus Adronicus, Surfer Blood, and Doug Gillard, while most shows will feature Bobby Bare, Jr. While they continue to be prolific studio performers, who knows the next time they’ll hit the road after this year’s tour. If you’ve been a huge fan for a while now or happen to have really good timing in discovering new favorites, get out to see Guided By Voices on tour this summer so you don’t have to wait another two years for your shot!
