Tour Dates Are Up

Hey hey! The dates for our second-half-of-summer tour, which we're calling Promises To Deliver II: To Awesome Fest 7 (and beyond) And Back, are up now. In fact, they're over on the right hand side of this website! Check them out.

Are we coming to your town? Well, this tour goes from Arkansas to Florida, then back up to Minneapolis, across the north to Seattle, south along the coast to San Diego, back across the mountains to Denver, and across the plains back to Arkansas. There's lots of America there. Hopefully we'll get to see you and hang out! If not... let us know that you want the BDB to come through wherever the hell it is you live, and we'll try and hit your city, town, or island manor next time we jump in the van.

For this tour, our good buddy Braden Franklin from Russellville, AR will be subbing for our home drummer Mike Cranberry. Braden's the man! We met him when he was playing in Half Raptor, who were an excellent band and who are missed. Keeping us all in line will be our man Matt Campbell, who has roadie'd, merch'd, and otherwise been awesome on most of our previous tours.

Last but not least, don't forget that all Nato Coles & The Blue Diamond Band shows are doubly enjoyable when you know the songs on the new album. Yup! Get that thing from ADD Records, or Dead Broke Records, or wherever you like, really. Download it for free if you must! You're taking away our spiced salmon cakes and handing us dumpstered bagels when you do that, but dumpstered bagels still get the job done and the most important thing is to ROCK OUT.

Allright! Hope to see you on the road this August and September. Stay free, folks. Tacos forever,

p.s. some people were asking me to link to my recent interview Minnesota Public Radio interview. Not many; some. Here it is: Nato Coles interview on MPR
