Alternative rocker, Ben Folds is hitting the road accompanied by
fellow alt-rock veterans Violent Femmes this summer. In addition to their separate headlining tours this year, the two will make this 14-date trek together, launching July 28 in Uncasville, CT.
Folds made a name for himself in the mid-90s with his band Ben Folds Five. For the last decade the musician has worked with a variety of well-established symphony orchestras.
This tour will take place in anticipation of his memoir, A Dream About Lightning Bugs – A Life of Music and Cheap Lessons, set to release in July.
Violent Femmes’ last studio album was release in 2016 titled,
We Can Do Anything. On March 5 they took to Twitter to announce the release of a “35th anniversary vinyl reissue of Hallowed Ground for Record Store Day 2019!”
