Australia & UK shows added to 2017 international schedule
Father John Misty has delivered a hilariously absurd new video for “Total Entertainment Forever,” from Pure Comedy, his acclaimed new album [link here].
In “Total Entertainment Forever” we find George Washington donning a virtual reality helmet and experiencing a simulation wherein Kurt Cobain gets crucified by corporate fascists. The video stars Father John Misty along with Thomas Bayne, Macaulay Culkin, Jack Dishel, Spencer Fox, David Garland, Toby Goodshank, Adam Green, Mical Klip, Tei Shi, and Dan Shure.
“Total Entertainment Forever” was directed by Four Gods and a Baby (Adam Green, Thomas Bayne, Toby Goodshank, Macaulay Culkin), edited Jordan Galland, and features cinematography by Ryan Foregger and costume design by Cara Alpert and Jessie Abraham.
Father John Misty’s Pure Comedy debuted at #10 on the BillboardTop 200 consumption chart, last week (April 13th), his highest ever chart debut. The album also peaked at #1 on the vinyl, Rock, Current Alternative, and Americana/Folk charts, with additional placements: Physical (#2), Current Albums (#3), and Digital (#7) (see Billboard April 21st).
At radio this week, “Total Entertainment Forever” was the #1 most added single with BDS reporters. Meanwhile, Pure Comedy has now spent two weeks at #1 album on both NACC 200 (college) and FMQB SubModern Albums charts, and #3 on the FMQBNonComm Albums chart.
Father John Misty’s incredible stage performances at Coachella drew raves from the likes of The Guardian, L.A. Times, Rolling Stone, USA Today, and more. “At the sundown set on the Main Stage, Misty proved that the act is up, and he has found his voice. It's a gorgeous one. Backed by a small orchestra and a trim-suited live band, Misty looked like he had just got out of the shower after surviving a three-day bender in a luxury hotel. Snakeskin moccasins, sunglasses at night, windswept long hair — every detail was spot-on. But let's be clear — he's not kidding anymore. He never was, really, but now he's devoted all his wit and psychedelic musings into writing the best songs of his life, and playing them beautifully,” says the L.A. Times.

The new dates include November 1st in Edinburgh at Usher Hall November 2nd in Glasgow at O2 Academy, November 5th in Manchester at O2 Apolloand November 7th in London at Hammersmith Eventim Apollo.
