Brendan Benson Hitting The Road

(Red) American singer-songwriter Brendan Benson embarks on a North American tour August 17th starting at New York City's Bowery Ballroom.

The tour advances the release of Benson's critically acclaimed fourth full-length album, My Old, Familiar Friend (August 18, ATO Records). The first leg of the tour will also make stops in Chicago, Ann Arbor, San Francisco, San Diego and Los Angeles.

On August 4, two weeks prior to album release, NPR.com will stream My Old, Familiar Friend in its entirety as All Songs Considered's "First Listen" giving fans all over North American the chance to hear the album critics have been raving about.

My Old, Familiar Friend was recorded in Nashville and London with producer, Gil Norton (Pixies, Maximo Park, Foo Fighters) and mixer Dave Sardy (The Rolling Stones, LCD Soundsystem, Oasis). Benson will be performing the lead single, a wildly catchy layering of hand-claps and guitar with a sing-along refrain, "A Whole Lot Better" on the Late Show With David Letterman on August 21st.
