On the cusp of seventeen years after Kozolek’s Red House Painters act disbanded, Sun Kil Moon continues to command a firm reputation for prolific, profound recorded output and exemplary live capabilities. The Guardian hailed Sun Kil Moon’s live offering “utterly magnificent”, Brooklyn Vegan declaring it “one of the most surprising and fulfilling show-going experiences I’ve had in years.”

Armed with an arsenal of recorded material spanning eight studio albums under the Sun Kil Moon moniker beginning with 2003’s Ghosts Of The Great Highway, Kozelek sound has evolved drastically over the last two decades including 2014’s astonishing stand-out LP Benji (including much loved tracks ‘Ben’s My Friend’ and ‘Carissa’) which garnered widespread critical acclaim and a legion of die-hard fans.

In what has been a truly extraordinary 12 months, the San Francisco based singer-songwriter Mark Kozelek has extensively toured the globe and added two more releases to his celebrated and extensive catalogue. A self-titled solo album as well as his ninth studio album under the Sun Kil Moon moniker ‘This Is My Dinner’, nine-minute album opener ‘This Is Not Possible’ featuring Kosleck’s trademark brand of laid back, no holds barred, storytelling.

Kozelek has announced the release of multiple projects this year. A new Sun Kil Moon album due out March 1, entitled ‘I Also Want to Die in New Orleans.’ As well as a 6-song full-length album featuring artists Petra Haden, Jason Lindner, Kevin Corrigan, Steve Shelley, Donny McCaslin, Ben Boye, and “other great talents.”

Sun Kil Moon is utterly unique amongst the folk and rock genres. Sparse yet intense, there is a mesmerizing quality to these introspective musical musings. The atmospheric restraint of arrangements is adored by true music aficionados the world over. This music, so sweeping, intimate and poetic, inspires a unique brand of allegiance and respect. Pulsing and luminous, this is acoustic balladry that transcends narrative, deftly conjuring vivid and dynamic imagery.

Please note. No support for this tour. Sun Kil Moon will be playing a 2.5 hour set at both shows.
