New record details, EU tour and beyond.

Hello hello hello!

As you may or may not have heard, my new record is officially slated for release on May 7, through my friends at Forward Music. We have already made a song available for you all. It’s been circulating, but if you haven’t heard it yet, please check it out!

The record is called Tambourine Death Bed, and I recorded it mostly at home, with contributions from some very special friends. I’m very proud to deliver it – it’s been along wait.

I am writing you now from gorgeous and noisy Paris, where we have just kicked off a little France tour with The Luyas (I’m playing lap steel with them). I’ve just arrived and had a day to recover. Immediately following this tour, I will do two weeks of my own solo MF shows in Germany, Belgium and ending in Paris (dates below). I couldn’t be more thrilled to be playing all this new material on stage finally. If we are all lucky, I may even have a limited number of CDs to sell – even in advance of the official release date. Shhhh.

Furthermore, in advance of the album release, we’ll do a limited edition 7″ of two songs more from the same sessions, Wolves (which some of you May know from the Snailhouse demos) and Shadow. My lovely and talented pal Nick Kuepfer is working on a silkscreened cover. If all goes as planned, this treat will be available for Record Store Day (Saturday, April 20).

I sincerely apologize for the ‘all business’ tone of this note. However, the absence of whimsical musing and mildly humorous self-deprecation is due only to the fact that there is so much exciting news to share. I want to keep it short so you can go out and play – it’s almost spring after all.
I’ll try ot keep the blog posts coming.

Lots of love,
MF.

PS – We’ve already gotten some pretty kind words for “Bones in the River”:

“There’s strength in his subtlety, a fortitude developed over the years. Feuerstack doesn’t sport a breastplate built to withstand musket volleys or parry bayonet thrusts. No, Feuerstack wears nothing more than the confidence of knowing he can withstand whatever attack life launches. He walks with his chest ripped open and his heart exposed, breaking and beating in public view.” – Herohill
