Event Details

Josh Ritter will set out on an extensive U.S. headlining tour in 2017 in support of his latest album Sermon On The Rocks (out now out now via Pytheas Recordings/Thirty Tigers).

Ritter recently released the official music video for his new song “Homecoming,” which features thousands of hometown images submitted directly to Ritter by his fans. Of the video, The Huffington Post raves, “‘Homecoming’ moves from a solo piano setting a butterscotch tone, to the voice of a young man backed by a band chugging in the background; to an acoustic middle eight and back to the glorious rhythm…It’s seamless, sweet, and real.”

Released to widespread critical praise, Sermon On The Rocks was recently named one of PopMatters’ “80 Best Albums of 2015” with NPR Music including his song “Getting Ready To Get Down” in their “Favorite Songs Of 2015” list, and Paste Magazine naming “Birds of the Meadow” in their “50 Best Songs of 2015” list. The New York Times asserts, “The literary-minded songwriter Josh Ritter…recharges his music on his eighth studio album, Sermon on the Rocks…Harking back to Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and maybe a little Mark Knopfler, Mr. Ritter has always been a slinger of serious ideas and high-flown imagery,” while The Wall Street Journal declares, “The new album’s music is airy, propulsive and more often than not, catchy.” NPR Music’s Stephen Thompson raves, “…it’s an approach that brings out some of Ritter’s slipperiest, nimblest wordplay…and a few genuine head-turners. Not many singers could pull off a whopper like, ‘If you wanna see a miracle, watch me get down,’ but when Ritter gets there near the end of ‘Getting Ready To Get Down,’ it lands like a grand punchline.”
