A Note From Josh Tillman RE: More Father John Misty Tour Dates

Fjm gapingmaw

The following is a note from Father John Misty regarding his upcoming tour in support of the in-our-biased-but-very-experienced opinion, perfect record, I Love You, Honeybear.

That’s why it’s so important that I see your beautiful little stupid faces. You are my lifeline to the world of mankind.

Listen: Father John Misty’s “True Affection”

Father John Misty’s “True Affection” is the new single and one of the standouts from his acclaimed new album, I Love You, Honeybear. The song has earned raves from the likes of PASTE (“stunning”), Under The Radar (“mesmerizing”) and Exclaim (“A true highlight”). Listen here.
 
Father John Misty’s 2015 worldwide tour, in support of I Love You, Honeybear, is underway, with a sold-out show tonight, April 3rd in Chicago, IL at the Vic Theatre and currently ends November 4th-8th in Reykjavik, IS for Iceland Airwaves. New highlights include British Columbia festivals Pemberton on July 18th and Colwood’s Rock the Shores on July 19th. Please find a complete list of tour dates below.
 
Father John Misty’s I Love You Honeybear has earned the singer his highest chart position in the US to date, entering at #17 on the Billboard Top 200. In the UK, I Love You, Honeybear also entered at #14 on the UK sales charts. The album also peaked at #1 on the CMJ Top 200, spending 4 weeks on the chart. I Love You, Honeybear also peaked at #2 with NonComm and Top 20 with Triple A reporters.
 
In related news, you can check out his recent Billboard cover story (with Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes and Hozier) and his Playboy Spring Music feature.
 
Father John Misty’s I Love You, Honeybear is available now on CD / LP / 2xLP / Deluxe 2xLP in Europe from Bella Union and everywhere else from Sub Pop to purchase via Father John Misty.net,  Sub Pop Mega Mart, iTunes, and Amazon.  

What people are saying about Father John Misty
“This warped, lovely album suggests that a true longtime partnership isn’t two people who love each other even for their flaws, but of two people accepting decay–their own and each other’s–and choosing to ride it out nonetheless.” - New York Times
 
“The artist born Josh Tillman aims for grandiosity in his Father John Misty disguise, and his second album for Sub Pop repeatedly reaches such heights. A musical genie bottle with the spirits of Phil Spector, Lee Hazlewood and Brian Wilson corked within, Tillman and co-producer Jonathan Wilson seem to revel in letting these sounds seep out and intermingle.” - Los Angeles Times
 
“His beloved Father John Misty debut was Fear Fun, issued in 2012. The new album, out now, is I Love You, Honeybear….and it is as good as, though quite different from, its predecessor.” - Wall Street Journal
 
I Love You, Honeybear, an album by turns passionate and disillusioned, tender and angry, so cynical it’s repulsive and so openhearted it hurts.” [8.8 / 10, “Best New Music”] - Pitchfork
 
“Upping the spectacle from Fear Fun his 2012 debut, I Love You, Honeybear is an autobiographical set about love, marriage and derangement that’s both ironic and empathic.” [4/5] - Rolling Stone
 
“If there’s a funnier, stranger and more touchingly bizarre album released this year, it will be a very good year indeed.” [4/5] - Billboard
 
“This is a gorgeous album.” [10/10] - Exclaim
 
“For all the layers of irony on I Love You, Honeybear, the biggest irony of all might be that such an ostensibly knotty and confusing album’s real strength lies in something as prosaic and transparent as its author’s ability to write a beautiful melody.” [5/5] - The Guardian
 
“Album of the Week” - Stereogum

Sub Pop, Record Store Day 2015, and You

We here at Sub Pop Records love few things more than Record Store Day. On Saturday, April 18th, 2015 aka Record Store Day, we will release two very limited (and potentially, for you) anticipated efforts: The self-titled LP from the Alan Bishop-led Koes Barat and a heart-shaped single from Father John Misty.     
 
Father John Misty’s “I Loved You, Honeybee” 7” Single:
Father John Misty presents a lovely, alternate version of the title track of his latest album, I Love You, Honeybear, along with a new, exclusive B-side, truthfully-entitled “I’ve Never Been a Woman,” on a red-colored, heart-shaped 7” in a 10” sleeve. This release is exclusive to Record Store Day, and it is limited to 5,700 copies worldwide.
 
Koes Barat Koes Barat LP:
In 2010, Sun City Girls legend Alan Bishop asserted his fandom of Indonesian ‘60s/’70s pop legends Koes Bersaudara (aka Koes Plus) with two archival releases on his and Hisham Mayet’s Sublime Frequencies label. But that wasn’t enough. Feeling an overwhelming urge to interpret Koes tunes, Bishop recorded Koes Barat in less than a week of sessions with some of his favorite musicians and producer Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Marisa Nadler). The result is the most immediate, fun collection that the prolific Bishop has ever led. This album is a Record Store Day exclusive, limited to 3,800 worldwide.

More About Record Store Day:
This is a day for the people who make up the world of the record store—the staff, the customers, and the artists—to come together and celebrate the unique culture of a record store and the special role these independently owned stores play in their communities. Special vinyl and CD releases and various promotional products are made exclusively for the day and hundreds of artists in the United States and in various countries across the globe make special appearances and performances. Festivities include performances, cook-outs, body painting, meet & greets with artists, parades, djs spinning records and on and on. Metallica officially kicked off Record Store Day at Rasputin Music in San Francisco on April 19, 2008 and Record Store Day is now celebrated the third Saturday every April.

On the subject of the Deluxe LP Edition of Father John Misty’s I Love You, Honeybear…

Blogrecords

Thank you for buying the fancy, colored-vinyl, deluxe version of Father John Misty’s new album, I Love You, Honeybear! Also, we are sorry that many of these fancy, colored-vinyl, deluxe versions of Father John Misty’s new album, I Love You, Honeybear are, it appears, warped! In our efforts to replicate the “wow factor” of such legendary album packages as the Rolling Stones’ Sticky Fingers zipper cover by Andy Warhol, we wound up accidentally replicating the “defect factor” of the same. In short, the extra, bulging thickness of the pop-up art in the Father John Misty jacket creates a lump that, when the LPs are sealed and packed, pushes into the LPs, causing the vinyl to warp and making that handsome, painstakingly and expensively produced jacket an elaborate record-destroying device. This oversight, and any attendant suffering, is our fault, and we are very sorry. We promise to be less ambitious in the future.

We are currently making 100% non-warped, colored-vinyl LPs to replace these damaged LPs. We hope to have a delivery date for those soon, and we will update this page as soon as we have that information. UPDATE: We expect to be able to begin shipping replacement LPs as soon as May 1st!

Please contact your place of purchase for instructions on how to obtain replacement LPs or refunds where replacements are not available. If you got it from Sub Pop’s online store please email websales@subpop.com with your name, address, and order number, and we will ship you replacement LPs as soon as they arrive, which will likely be sometime in mid-March early May. And, if you bought this album from Father John Misty’s website (Merchline), please contact them for replacement LPs here: http://help.merchline.com/customer/portal/emails/new. Please keep the jacket – we will be replacing only the vinyl itself. And we will be accepting requests for replacement LPs only through May 15, 2015! To reiterate, if your copy of I Love You, Honeybear is warped and you got your album anywhere other than Sub Pop’s website, or Father John Misty’s website, please contact your place of purchase.

In the meantime, please accept our apologies, and we hope you can enjoy the unmolested music of Father John Misty via the download code provided with your LP, and maybe also at one of his exciting, upcoming live shows.

Other things worth mentioning here and related to Father John Misty’s new and very good I Love You, Honeybear album…

In response to several emails on the subject, here’s info on something we did with this album on LP (both the deluxe and regular editions) that was NOT an accident: due to its length and the wide audio spectrum of the recording, we at Sub Pop, together with Father John Misty, decided that the album sounded much better cut at 45 RPM over 2 pieces of vinyl. Though we all prefer the listening experience of a single piece of vinyl, we decided in this case to prioritize audio quality (an admittedly very subjective determination). You’re welcome!
