In a statement James explained that he won’t be taking the stage alone.
“Hello friends! I have put together a special band of some of my oldest pals to help bring this album to life on the road! We are very excited about it and can’t wait to bring it to light! See ya out on the open road!”
Regions Of Light And Sound Of God is due out Feb. 5 on ATO Records.
