And on July 15 and 16 at the Fillmore Theater in San Francisco, Fair to Midland will open for The Smashing Pumpkins at the first two shows of the Pumpkins' West Coast residency.

In addition to just releasing their first major label debut, Fables From a Mayfly: What I Say Three Times is True (Serjical Strike/Universal Republic), which debuted at #2 last week on Billboard's New Artist chart, Fair to Midland has also performed at this year's Coachella, Bamboozle, Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park and Download festivals.
