Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile will lead an all-star band on a once-in-a-lifetime tour of North America this fall, and the news comes as these two reveal that they have completed a collaboration album for release later this year.
The inter-continental duo will share the stage, performing songs off their upcoming album, as well as delving into their respective back catalogs, all backed by their band "The Sea Lice," a revolving cast of musicians including Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Rob Laakso (The Violators, The Swirlies, Mice Parade), and Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin and touring member of Sleater-Kinney and Wild Beasts).
Kurt and Courtney have partnered with Plus 1 so that $1 from every ticket goes to support the ACLU and their work defending and protecting our individual rights and liberties.
Tix for the tour go on sale to the public on Friday, but you can grab them today using presale code BLUEBERRYHILL.

Kurt and Courtney's upcoming album is the result of 8 days in the studio spread over almost 15 months when Courtney and Kurt’s respective touring schedules allowed for them to be in the same place at the same time. It will be released later this year jointly by Matador Records, Marathon Artists and Milk! Records.
