“We are delighted to be sharing the stage with pals in Band Of Horses,” My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James said. “We danced a beautiful dance together at Madison Square Garden [in December 2011] and there is a lot of love between our camps. It’s gonna be a good old-tyme thrill ride!”
Band Of Horses is also looking forward to the road trip.
“YES! We’re touring with the incredible My Morning Jacket!” lead singer Ben Bridwell said. “So psyched to hit the road with our buddies and (hopefully) warm you all up for the greatest band going.”
