M. Ward deals new tour dates, video

placeholder image

    We don’t need to tell you that M. Ward has been a busy fellow in 2009, the evidence speaks for itself: He shelled out his seventh LP, Hold Time, made appearances on both Craig Ferguson and Dave Letterman, and has been on the road since March, a trip which culminated on Friday with an appearance at Coachella.

    So color us not shocked to hear that Ward is out with yet more news, this time in the form of a new music video for the Hold Time, Zooey Deschanel-featuring number “Rave On”, (did we mention, she also appears in the video?) and some summer tour dates. After visiting a select few cities in Europe this summer, Ward will return to the states in late July for a few more dates, two of which (July 23rd in Utah and August 1st in New York) will be free engagements. Yes, free, meaning not one dollar is necessary.

    The same can’t be said about Ward’s upcoming appearance at XX Merge, but given what is slated to take place for Merge’s 20th B-Day party, one really shouldn’t mind.

    Now if only we could get some Monsters of Folk action…
