Ray LaMontagne & the Pariah Dogs Summer Tour
(PR) Ray LaMontagne & the Pariah Dogs have announced their 2011 summer tour plans in support of their album, God Willin' & the Creek Don't Rise.
The tour will begin in Waterbury, CT on May 25th and culminate on June 21st in Boise, ID with supporting acts Brandi Carlile and The Secret Sisters. Ray is also set to play at this year's Bonnaroo Festival on June 10th.
God Willin' & the Creek Don't Rise debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 and #1 on the Digital Album chart. This marked a personal sales best for Ray and tied his debut chart position at #3 with Gossip in the Grain. The single, "Beg Steal or Borrow" became Ray's first radio #1 on the AAA BDS and Mediabase. The Associated Press called the album "one of the year's best," while the New York Daily News' 5 star review said the album is "one of the stand out releases of the year."
The band spent the latter portion of last year touring the US with David Gray and Levon Helm. The Commercial Appeal stated Ray, "radiated earthy charm and a powerfully focused voice," while American Songwriter claimed Ray is "the physical embodiment of the word- classic."
The "Pariah Dogs" consists of Jay Bellerose (drums), Jennifer Condos (bass), Eric Heywood (guitar) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar).
Tickets for the tour will be available for pre-sale from March 1st – March 3rd at www.raylamontagne.com and on sale to the general public on March 4th and 5th.
