Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit Extend 2018 Summer Tour

Jason Isbell  and The 400 Unit have announced more summer tour dates in support of their Grammy-winning 2017 album, The Nashville Sound.

The Nashville Sound won a Grammy award for Best Americana Album and their song “If We Were Vampires,” also from that album, won a Grammy for Best American Roots Song. In Paste’s review of the album, Ryan J. Prado wrote:

Through matter-of-fact lyrical acuity, Isbell peels back layers of cultural abstraction to reveal the grit of the human experience on The Nashville Sound, and renders it much more inclusive than the title’s regional attribution might make it seem. The Nashville Sound is the sound of America, pulling up its sleeves, confronting its bullshit, raging at its flickering beacon. Isbell, maybe better than anyone else on the planet, can tap into the polarizing societal veins of the country’s manias, and transform them into anthems for—hopefully—much better days ahead.

In addition to their previously released American tour dates, these new summer tour dates will bring Isbell and his longtime band to the West Coast through August and September, and singer-songwriter Aimee Mann will support the band for most of the dates. There will also be a special livestream of the band’s performance in Orlando, Fla., which will air on April 18 at 9 p.m. EST.

Check out the band’s upcoming tour dates below, beneath a 2011 Isbell performance from the Paste Cloud, and read Paste’s recent interview with Isbell here.
