– Tyler Childers and The Food Stamps will return to the stage next year with the "Send in the Hounds Tour."
April 14 at New Orleans' The Fillmore, the nationwide run includes shows in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Colorado's Red Rocks Amphitheatre.
Special guests on the tour include Charley Crockett, Drive-By Truckers, S.G. Goodman, Wayne Graham, Abby Hamilton, Elle King, Marcus King, John R. Miller, Miles Miller and Margo Price.
Childers released his triple album, "Can I Take My Hounds to Heaven?," earlier this fall via Hickman Holler Records/RCA Records. Produced by Childers and The Food Stamps and recorded in guitarist's James Barker's home studio, Dragline Studios, the record features eight songs presented in three distinct sonic perspectives—Hallelujah, Jubilee and Joyful Noise.
The Hallelujah version captures the group playing live in a single room, while the Jubilee version adds strings, horns and an array of instruments such as dulcimer, mbira and sitar. The Joyful Noise version consists of remixes created with DJ Charlie Brown Superstar (Brett Fuller) that include samples from sources such as "The Andy Griffith Show," theologist Thomas Merton and comedian Jerry Clower as well as church service excerpts pulled from the Kentucky Center for Traditional Music archives.
The Food Stamps are: Barker (pedal steel), Craig Burletic (bass), CJ Cain (guitar), Rodney Elkins (drums), Chase Lewis (keyboards) and Jesse Wells (guitar, fiddle).
