Paul Janeway stated of the tour, “It is hard to imagine that we got together a decade ago to record an album in Sheffield, AL in a studio that used to be an old bank. A record that would change our lives. Half The City was an album recorded live with a sense of urgency like we were fleeing from a burning building while playing our instruments. This January – February tour we are going to celebrate that spirit. We are going to play songs from that album we rarely play nowadays and songs we still regularly play. We hope y’all will join us to celebrate.”
The band has had a tremendous 2022 on the heels of their latest album The Alien Coast, playing top festivals and some of their biggest-ever shows to date, including a sold-out Beacon Theatre in New York City this spring.
The January tour follows an end-of-year tradition – the band will cap off 2022 with two New Years’ performances at Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia on December 30 and 31. In addition, St Paul & The Broken Bones will play Bluesfest 2023 in Australia in April alongside shows with Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats. See below for the full itinerary.
The Birmingham, AL powerhouse octet, led by the impassioned vocals of frontman, Paul Janeway, released The Alien Coast (ATO Records) last January. The album earned them top TV performances on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and CBS Saturday Morning. Janeway explored the album’s themes in interviews with the New Yorker, NPR All Things Considered and Elton John, while PopMatters deemed “its creativity and complexity sketch out innovative new paths for this band.” The album was also named to The Guardian’s list of ‘The Best Albums of 2022 So Far.’
This summer, the band shared a fresh series of live videos recorded at Arc Studios in Nashville including a smoldering soul take on the David Bowie classic Moonage Daydream, which Rolling Stone premiered along with an interview with Janeway. A newly recorded live video of Love Letter From a Red Roof Inn was premiered by American Songwriter and a live version of The Last Dance premiered on The Bluegrass Situation.
St. Paul & the Broken Bones is: Paul Janeway (vocals), Jesse Phillips (bass), Browan Lollar (guitar), Kevin Leon (drums), Al Gamble (keyboards), Allen Branstetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone), and Amari Ansari (saxophone).
