NATE HALL: U.S. Tour Dates Announced

Founding USX vocalist/guitarist NATE HALL will embark upon a very special run of U.S. tour dates later this month alongside YOB mastermind Mike Scheidt. The tour will commence on July 14 in Asheville, North Carolina and run through July 23 in Washington, DC.

HALL will be touring in support of his solo debut A Great River, released via Neurot Recordings May 8. Recorded in a single March evening, A Great River offers up a lush landscape of sonic richness and is as pure and honest as music gets. The songs are regretful of the bad times, hopeful of times to come, and respectful of the great power that causes all thing to be. Commended Decibel Magazine in an 8/10 review: “[Hall] takes to folk and country as effortlessly as the heavy stuff and the mood he captures on these 10 tracks is extraordinary,” Outburn called the record “beautifully crafted,” while opined: A Great River‘s ten tracks are dark and expansive… the best kind of eerie, mixing electric and acoustic guitar so songs swirl and swell.” Creative Loafing crowned A Great River, “a strange and hopeless document, and that may be where the beauty lies,” Digital Fix agreed: “With A Great River, NATE HALL has offered up one of the most emotionally draining and honest records so far this year. A mixture of echo-drenched electric guitars and mournful acoustic weave a tapestry of forlorn, melancholic American folk music that reaches right down into the soul as Nate’s rich, deep voice recites his lamentations,” while The Sleeping Shaman dubbed it “a paean to the downtrodden, delicately masked in light, well-crafted tones and passages of build and release catharsis, but it has an incredible sense of atmosphere and honesty.”
