Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile will lead an all-star band on a once-in-a-lifetime tour of North America this fall. The announcement comes as two of this generation's most exciting and unique singer-songwriters reveal that they have completed a collaboration album for release later this year. The inter-continental duo will share the stage, performing songs off their upcoming album as well as delving into their respective back catalogues and covering a bunch of classics, all backed by their band 'The Sea Lice,' a revolving cast of musicians including Janet Weiss (Sleater-Kinney, Wild Flag), Stella Mozgawa (Warpaint), Rob Laakso (The Violators, The Swirlies, Mice Parade) and Katie Harkin (Harkin, Sky Larkin and touring member of Sleater-Kinney and Wild Beasts). "A cookin' band and an intercontinental country duo for the ages-minus the country," says Vile.

Kurt and Courtney have partnered withPlus 1so that $1 from every ticket goes to support theACLUand their work defending and protecting our individual rights and liberties.
