Isobel Campbell and Mark Lanegan will kick off their first ever North American tour beginning October 13th in Boston, MA. The tour will also include two shows in the New York area, October 16th at The Bowery Ballroom and October 17th at the Music Hall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.

Since departing the celebrated Scottish indie-pop outfit Belle and Sebastian in 2002, Isobel Campbell has released several solo albums as well as critically acclaimed collaborations with former Screaming Trees frontman Mark Lanegan. The August 24th release of Campbell’s haunting new album, Hawk, marks her third release with Lanegan and debut album with Vanguard Records.
Produced by Campbell herself, Lanegan lends his signature blues-folk growl to eight of the album’s 13 tracks, while singer-songwriter Willy Mason guests on two. Former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha appears on the track “You Won’t Let Me Down Again.” A music video for “You Won’t Let Me Down Again” is currently in production.
