California folk rockers The Mountain Goats are about to release their 15th album, Transcendental Youth, and they will be stopping in 16 cities across North America – including one in Canada – to bring their unique lo-fi indie sound to the fan base they’ve built over the last 20 years. At times the sole vision of songwriter John Darnielle and at others a collaborative effort with a range of other folk artists, The Mountain Goats 2012 tour will include baritone Matthew E. White and will kick off with a one-of-a-kind performance in Durham, NC, with the Anonymous 4.

The Mountain Goats Tickets 2012

Saturday 3:00 PM The Front Porch Music Festival with The Mountain Goats, The Dodos Wente Vineyards Livermore, CA

While the sound of The Mountain Goats’ recordings has changed a bit over the years – records were often recorded in someone’s living room on a boombox and released on vinyl and cassette, but are now recorded in a studio with a full band – the evidence of Darnielle’s impact on every single song has remained consistent. A move from California to North Carolina gave him a new place to center his career, but it’s been clear from the start that his musical vision had strong roots to feed his evolution as an artist.

In addition to the multitude of side projects Darnielle and other group members have completed, this could be one of the most popular tours in the gorup’s history.
