Ahead of the tour, he will also be releasing ‘Five Easy Hot Dogs’ on vinyl on June 16. You can pre-order/pre-save it here.
The album, which was released earlier this year, was recorded during his time out on the road last year. “The plan was to start driving north, and not go home to Los Angeles until I was done with a record,” he previously explained. “Kind of like being on tour, except there weren’t any shows, and I’d just be burning money.”
Each song featured on ‘Five Easy Hot Dogs’ was recorded and mixed in the corresponding city named in its title.
Meanwhile, DeMarco recently teamed up with Snail Mail for a cover of Talking Heads’ 1983 classic ‘This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)’.
