Father John Misty has scheduled the first round of 2017 North American tour dates in support of Pure Comedy, his forthcoming third album. The new headlining dates include a reserved-seat show at the historic Chicago Theatre on May 15. Show time is 7:30pm. Tickets [$49.50 / $39.50 / $29.50] become available Friday, March 3 at Noon through Ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-745-3000 or in person at The Chicago Theatre box office.

Father John Misty’s “Ballad of the Dying Man” is a standout from Pure Comedy. The track has earned raves from Pitchfork (“Best New Track”), Rolling Stone, Stereogum, The Ringer, SPIN, and more. The Ringer says of the track, “It is simultaneously plaintive and winking and obnoxious and beautiful, as all the good Father John Misty songs are.” SPIN offers this, “It opens with a descending chord progression on acoustic guitar and piano that recalls Neil Young’s “Motion Pictures,” then slides into a patient pop arrangement worthy of Elton John.”

Pure Comedy will be available April 7 on deluxe 2xLP / 2xLP / CD / DL / CS worldwide through Sub Pop and Bella Union. The album’s front/back covers and gatefold feature a gargantuan original piece (his first ever commission of its kind) by Ed Steed (The New Yorker). Preorder the album now through Father John Misty’s Official Store
