As we get near the release date for Father John Misty’s much anticipated third album, “Pure Comedy”, the promotion for the record seems to be ramping up. From the countless quotable and thought-provoking interviews and articles to Saturday Night Live performances , it’s hard to deny that Josh Tillman has dominated the music press cycle over the last couple of months.

He once again found himself on the late-night TV stage as he returned to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to play Pure Comedy highlight “The Ballad of the Dying Man.” Compared to previous appearance on the show, Tillman keeps things on the tamer side and turns in an excellent performance, aided in no small part by the chorus of singers off to his left. There’s also a nice little moment where he slightly flubs a lyric heading into the song’s last verse and quickly laughs it off as he keeps on rolling.

Keeping up the momentum, this morning Josh Tillman announced a bevy of new international tour dates. From the looks of it, he’ll be on the road from now through to Thanksgiving, with only a few breaks in between, so if you were hoping to get a chance to see him bring Pure Comedy to life, then odds are you’ll have that chance (provided you live in North America or Europe). He’ll be joined throughout the year by a rotating slate of excellent supporting acts, including Jenny Lewis, Phosphorescent, Tennis and a lengthy run of shows with Weyes Blood.
