Black Country, New Road Says North American Tour Begins in September

Black Country, New Road announced a tour in the United States in September, headlining at the Bowery Ballroom in New York on September 5, ahead of going on the road with Black Midi. 

In the announcement, Black Country, New Road stressed that they will be performing “a set of completely new music.” As a result, the band has decided not to play any songs from their two previous studio albums, For the First Time and Ants From Up There.

May Kershaw, Charlie Wayne, Luke Mark, Tyler Hyde, Lewis Evans, and Georgia Ellery are the current members of the band. 

Black Country, New Road had been scheduled to take the North American road this past winter; however, it was called off following Isaac Wood leaving their ensemble.

The English ensemble started a tour of Europe and the United Kingdom last month, their first shows without Wood.
