Tall Heights will serve as special guest on the 10-date trek, which kicks off August 13th in Boston and concludes two weeks later in Indianapolis on August 25th.
“Cake – my rough contemporaries, comrades and heroes – to me, they make universal, poetic, identifiable music with a groove. I’ve learned a lot from these guys and I’m proud as punch to be on tour with them this summer,” Folds said of the tour in a statement. “I’m telling my friends to get there early enough for Tall Heights – a great addition to this bill.”
Cake singer John McCrea added, “We are very much looking forward to touring with Ben Folds. In a culture often conflicted about its relationship to melody, and songwriting generally, Ben continues unapologetically to provide melodic clarity and musicality. I am also looking forward to hearing Tall Heights. This co-headline line up seems like a good combination of musical styles-disparate but not antithetical to each other-and it should be a solid evening of music.”
