Indie Folk Trio Good Old War Announces Us Tour

Philadelphia indie folk-rock three-piece Good Old War will hit the road in support Brandi Carlile beginning July 25th in Kent, OH, followed by a tour with Xavier Rudd (from August 25th in New York City). The support slots come on the heels of a successful USA headline tour, which saw them playing to devout crowds in sold out rooms. The band will also make a hometown performance on August 25, playing a set at Philadelphia Folk Fest with Jeff Tweedy and Richard Thompson.

The band's latest album "Good Old War," which was released June 1st on Sargent House, has been receiving critical raves from both national and local press. The Aquarian Weekly said that Good Old War "seems to master the art of adorable folk music with their three-part harmonies and amorous tracks...the band has managed to create an album of folksy pop music riddled with vocals that melt together like butter." The Star-Ledger congratulated the album's "angelic multi-part harmonies over finger-picked six-string weaves and brisk country rhythms" and called the trio "imaginative" and "superb."

The album, which is the band's second, debuted at #2 on the Billboard Heatseeker chart and #1 on iTunes' singer/songwriter chart.

Additionally, the band's recently-recorded World Café Live session will be broadcast today on NPR affiliate station across the country.
