Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne announces fall tour dates in the U.S and U.K to support his new studio album, Standing In The Breach, scheduled for release on October 6 (international) and 7 (U.S.). The fall shows with Jackson and his band begin on September 14 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and end on November 24, at London's Royal Albert Hall.
Accompanying Jackson on the road this fall are longtime band mates Val McCallum (guitar), Mauricio Lewak (Drums), Jeff Young (keyboards) and Bob Glaub (bass), with the addition of acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).
Standing In The Breach, Jackson's fourteenth studio album, is a collection of ten songs, at turns deeply personal and political, exploring love, hope, and defiance in the face of the advancing uncertainties of modern life.
"This is my ideal band, with some of my favorite players, all of whom appear on the new CD, and whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs," says Jackson. "The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz on this album - the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap. I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour."
Currently, Jackson Browne is on a solo tour thru August 23rd, with two (2) band shows on August 4 and 5, in a co-bill with John Fogerty at PNC Bank Arts Center (Holmdel, NJ) and Jones Beach (Wantagh, NY).
