North Carolina’s acclaimed indie-Americana quartet Mipso announce today an extensive Spring headline tour in support of their new album, Edges Run, out April 6th, 2018 via a freshly inked deal with AntiFragile Music. Mipso bring their distinctly unique sound - full of wistful beauty, hopeful undercurrents, and panoramic soundscapes - to 27 cities across North America, kicking off on April 6th in Jim Thorpe, PA at the Mauch-Chuck Opera House. From there, Mipso head up and down both the East and West Coasts and throughout the Midwest, to wrap on May 20th at Bell’s Café in Kalamazoo, MI. Joining Mipso on select dates are Tom Brosseau, Madison Cunningham, Sera Cahoone, Anna Tivel, Courtney Hartman and The Lowest Pair. All confirmed dates are below, with tickets available beginning Friday, February 23 at www.mipsomusic.com.

Additionally, Mipso can be seen on a co-headlining tour with acclaimed bluegrass troubadour Ben Sollee and Kentucky Native, kicking off on February 27th, 2018 at Antone’s in Austin, TX and visiting 10 cities across Texas and the mid-west before wrapping on March 9th at the International in Knoxville, TN. 

Mipso, influenced by the contradiction of its progressive home and the surrounding rural southern landscapes, is hailed as “hewing surprisingly close to gospel and folk while still sounding modern and secular” (Acoustic Guitar) and was recently recognized by Rolling Stone as an "Artist You Need to Know Now." The band’s 2017 record, Coming Down The Mountain debuted at # 3 on the Billboard Bluegrass Chart, #49 on The AMA Americana Radio Chart, and spent weeks at #1 on The Roots Music Report Top 50 Americana Country Album and Top 50 Country Album Chart.

 Stay tuned for more information about Mipso and their new album release Edges Run, to be announced soon.
