Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros hit the road today for an extensive run of live dates. The trek will kick off tonight in Ojai, CA at Libbey Bowl for a special performance to benefit the Ojai Valley Community Nursery School. The tour will wrap up on October 5th at Crossroads in Kansas City, MO. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah will support for most dates. To purchase tickets for upcoming dates, click HERE.

The band is touring in support of their May release Here, which debuted at #1 on the Independent Music Chart and #5 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart the week after its release. Relix Magazine hailed it as “an album full of undeniable folk-rock hooks, gospel overtones, infectious lyrics, orchestral swells and a whole lot of love,” and Entertainment Weekly praised the album for its “lovely troubadour melodies.”  Having recently wrapped a nearly sold-out European tour, the band is also putting the final touches on the follow up to Here, which will be released in early 2013 via Community Music.
