In an unlikely pairing, Jason Isbell will be hitting the road with Father John Misty this summer. Isbell and the 400 Unit and Father John Misty will make stops at a number of amphitheater’s throughout the country, so you’ll have no excuse to miss out.
The 2019 summer tour will begin on June 6th in San Diego and will make tour stops in Milwaukee, Detroit, Chicago, South California, Irving, Houston, Philadelphia and many more. Fans can get their tickets for the anticipated tour at Ticketmaster.com, so get your tickets while they are still available.

In support of his new critically acclaimed album, God’s Favorite Customer, American singer/songwriter Josh Tillman (known to many as Father John Misty) brought his headlining 2018 tour to Milwaukee’s beautiful Pabst Theater.
Performing for a sold out crowd, Father John Misty was all music and little talk on Thursday night, singing a number of cuts from his latest LP, as well as his Grammy nominated 2017 album, Pure Comedy and more. Originally recording under his J. Tillman moniker, the Maryland native has consistently released albums for the past 15-years (four as FJM), so Tillman had plenty of songs to choose from for his roughly 20-track set.
Following a opening performance from his Sub Pop labelmate, King Tuff, it was soon time for Father John Misty to step on stage for the packed general admission crowd.
And despite touring in support of God’s Favorite Customer, Father John kicked off Thursday night’s set with his 2012 song, ‘Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sing’, from his first Father John Misty LP, Fear Fun. But his Milwaukee fans didn’t fear fun last evening, because despite Tillman’s often cynical and sarcastic demeanor, the entire theater was set to enjoy a memorable night.
Lucky for the crowd, Tillman delivered. Not only did Misty perform the majority of his new album, but he also performed the majority of singles and fan favorites from Pure Comedy. From start to finish, the crowd was in awe watching FJM perform. Despite having a complicated and cynical relationship (if you can even call it that) with religion, Tillman has a god-like presence on stage.
While tackling topics like religion and politics through his songs, what’s most interesting about Tillman’s take is his especially unique perspective on music and the above topics. Growing up in an Evangelical Christian household, Tillman was not allowed to listen to secular music until he was 17. This very religious and sheltered upbringing shaped Tillman and his music, and as an artist he is perhaps better for it.
Stand out performances from Thursday include ‘Ballad of a Dying Man’, ‘Mr. Tillman’, ‘Pure Comedy’ and his closing performance with ‘I Love You, Honeybear’, but highlights from the evening certainly were not few and far between.
Fans came to have a good night and Mr. Tillman made it happen.

This month we wrapped up our second straight year at Bonnaroo, teaming up with our friends at Pigeons And Planes to cover The Farm’s 15th Anniversary. And while we already shared some of our favorite moments live from the premiere Tennessee festival, we wanted to share more photos of some of our favorite performances this year. With memorable sets from Pearl Jam, LCD Soundsystem, Dead & Company, Ellie Goulding, J. Cole, Haim, Anderson East, Post Malone and St. Lucia, just to name a few, this was certainly a Bonnaroo to remember.
Check out our fifth Bonnaroo Photo Series of 2016, of Father John Misty’s Sunday performance.
Last night Lana Del Rey premiered her new music video at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, and while most music videos don’t warrant their own release event, Lana’s videos aren’t “most music videos”. This time releasing visuals for her 2015 track, ‘Freak’, from her Honeymoon album, Lana Del Rey’s new music video co-stars Lana’s close friend and rocker, Father John Misty, and everything you wouldn’t expect and everything you would expect from Lana all at the same time.
The new music video certainly shares images and a general feel from some of Lana’s previous vintage-themed videos, but this new one totals over 10-minutes long. And while we won’t try to give away too much, the last half of the video is full of a weird (in the best way possible) underwater piano-laced slow-motion sequence of Lana swimming. You definitely need to check it out for yourself.
Lana Del Rey fans have been thirsty for new anything Lana, ever since the release of her latest album Honeymoon. A new tour, new music, anything really, fans could not have been any more excited for whatever is next and today Lana announced a new video with the talented Father John Misty. For her Honeymoon track ‘Freak’, Lana is releasing her latest video “soon”, as she told fans.
The video will star Misty and will also feature the girls from Lana’s ‘Music to Watch Boys To’ video. ‘Freak’ will be the first new video from Lana’s Honeymoon album since she released the visuals for ‘Music to Watch Boys To’ in 2015.

We were confident that Coachella’s Friday kick off could not be topped. Well it looks like we were wrong. This year The Early Registration teamed up with Pigeons & Planes to catch all the best moments of Coachella 2015, and Saturday’s lineup of shows were even better than Friday. Today fans saw performances from Tyler the Creator, The Weeknd, Run the Jewels, Hozier, Toro y Moi, Father John Misty and more!
