Psychedelic, soul or classic rock and roll - My Morning Jacket has mastered all. The band's music is a blend of genres centered on psychedelic rock and occasionally punctuated by folk, country and blues. The Louisville based rock act has just released their seventh studio album, a mix of alternative, indie and psychedelic rock. “The Waterfall” released in May 2015, is the group's first album in four years and will be succeeded by another one in 2016. There is good news for rock lovers- MMJ has extended their already massive world tour, adding another North American leg to their calendar. Access to My Morning Jacket tickets would get difficult day by day so make sure you get them before there's a fan rush.

Gracing the Festivals
The five-piece, known for its eclectic and over-whelming onstage renditions, has just wrapped up the last gig of their first American leg. Originally in support of their new album, the two-month jaunt became more of a 'Festival Tour'. With a large number of festival appearances on the slate, including the ones in UK, Ireland and Germany, the tour attracted crowds like a magnet. The band started the journey off the first leg on May 15, 2015 from Athens, stopping over at multiple cities including Boston, Denver, Miami and New York. MMJ had multi-night performances at Detroit, Minneapolis and Chicago and rocked festivals like Bonnaroo and Boston Calling. As of now, the quintet has already wrapped up the North American setlist and is preparing to leave for the European part of the journey on August 28. The foreign trek will kick off from France and hit Belgium, Germany, Ireland, UK and Netherlands on the way.
You probably would have heard news about My Morning Jacket's most recent rock performance at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver. The iconic concert held just a few days ago on August 14 marked the band's last and the “most amazing” gig of the leg. Describing the epic three-hour jam, frontman Jim James called it a “beautiful rock womb”, in a befitting allusion to being born again. With bassist Tom Blankenship, keyboardist Bo Koster, guitarist Carl Broemel and Patrick Hallahan on the drums, MMJ preferred sticking to its usual style of jamming. Stretching their rock anthems to the limit, the quintet outdid themselves morphing back-to-back tracks into a steamy 20-minute medley.

The first stop on the itinerary is Portland's Keller Auditorium, followed by performances at Seattle, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara among others.
