American folk-rockers The Mountain Goats have announced the first leg of their fall tour and will be joined by Matthew E. White, emerging solo artist and writer of masterful horn arrangements on the band’s forthcoming, October 2nd release, Transcendental Youth.

The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle comments on their recent in-studio collaboration with White: “One of my fondest memories of the Transcendental Youth recording sessions is listening in the control room as Matthew and his players brought his horn arrangements to life on the other side of the glass. Me and Peter and Jon just sat there with our jaws on the floor. We can’t wait to hear it come together live.”

Matthew E. White will release his debut LP Big Inner on August 21 via his own label, Spacebomb.

Look for an upcoming interview with White on Talk Rock To Me.
