Molina And Johnson Announce Early 2010 US Tour

New American songwriters Jason Molina and Will Johnson got together some time ago to record the aptly titled "Molina And Johnson" (release November 3rd) under the big Texas sky. Next up for the duo is an early 2010 for a full-on, intimate US tour. Following a string of European live dates that begin in November, Molina and Johnson will convene in late January to loop from Texas around the Southeast, East Coast and Midwest, returning to the Lone Star State again. On each of the US dates, the duo will be joined by Chris Brokaw (Come/Codeine).

Currently, Johnson is hitting the skins on the Monsters of Folk tour, while Molina just wrapped up a tear across Europe with Magnolia Electric Co.

To go along with the US tour announcement, Molina and Johnson are sharing one of the true-blue duets from their collaboration. Even on an album chock-full of heartbreakers, "Almost Let You In" offers up its fair share of cutting moments. "Granted that I ever, ever stop playing to win, could you find it in the cards to bring me to the light?" is the plea to what could be a woman or a higher being (or both). Mid-song, the atmospheric guitar, acoustic strums and tamborine taps all cut out for the soft rap of fingertips on the body of an acoustic guitar for a moment of real reflection.

Molina and Johnson will be released by Secretly Canadian next week, on November 3rd (November 2nd in the UK) on CD/LP/Digital formats.
