BAND SETS WEST COAST TOUR DATES
WITH HALEY HEYNDERICKX
CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED NEW RECORD
THE ONLY ONES OUT NOW
Guitarist/vocalist Kenneth Pattengale of the Grammy-nominated group The Milk Carton Kids is surprising fans with his version of Bob Dylan’s epic new song “Murder Most Foul,” a 17-minute long delicate song about the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, itself released just seven days ago. Listen to the track HERE.
Pattengale comments that “it’s been 10 years and 70 days since my last proper solo release—about time for something new. Indeed, friends, stay safe.”
In addition to the new track, The Milk Carton Kids have rescheduled their West Coast tour with Haley Heynderickx in celebration of The Only Ones, their critically acclaimed new record out now on the band’s own Milk Carton Records imprint in partnership with Thirty Tigers (purchase/stream the record HERE). The run of dates now kicks off at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre on August 30; previously purchased tickets remain valid, with tickets for the new dates on sale now at themilkcartonkids.com.
“This is going to be a good one,” notes singer and guitarist Joey Ryan. “We and Hayley Heynderickx are coming to the West Coast. We’ll be in clubs, theaters, bars, and churches. We’ll each play a full set for you. You will cry, I would say, 70% for sure. Haley’s songs are gorgeous and unique and personal. We’ll be performing as a duo, so tell us what you want to hear and we’ll do our best to re-learn it.”
Founded in 2011, The Milk Carton Kids swiftly emerged as a major force in the American folk tradition, blending ethereal harmonies and intricate musicianship with a uniquely powerful brand of contemporary songcraft. 2013’s ANTI-debut The Ash & Clay proved their national breakthrough, earning The Milk Carton Kids their first Grammy Award nomination for Best Folk Album. A second Grammy nomination for Best American Roots Performance followed in 2015 for the track “The City of Our Lady” from band’s acclaimed third studio album, Monterey, and their most recent album, 2018’s All The Things That I Did And All The Things That I Didn’t Do, was nominated for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.
