Jim James and The Claypool Lennon Delirium have announced plans for a summer 2019 co-headline tour. The two acts will join forces for nine dates across the United States and Canada - beginning June 21 at Salt Lake City's Eccles Theater and then continuing into early July.

"For over 150 years, the firm of Claypool and Lennon has been providing clients with only the finest in rock and roll delirium and stark raving madness. This summer, I am excited and honored to say that we will be teaming up to offer a brand new twist on one of the most time tested and proven methods for inducing beautifully swirling and whirling delightfully delicious delirium: the healing power of rock and roll!"  said James.

"Tour pairing is often a challenge in my world but I think we have a good package with The Delirium and Jim James. Jim's music, from my perspective, is palatable to the masses yet has just enough eclecticism to keep an oddball like me intrigued. I look forward to shambling around the country with him," said Les Claypool.

Presales begin Wednesday, March 6 at 10 am (local). Local presales follow on Thursday, March 7 at 10 am (local). All presales conclude Thursday, March 7 at 10 pm (local). All remaining tickets will then be released to the general public on Friday, March 8 at 10 am (local). In partnership with RPM, $1 from every ticket purchased for the Jim James + Claypool Lennon Delirium Summer 2019 Tour will benefit My Morning Jacket's Waterfall Project, this time benefitting the Young Authors Greenhouse, a nonprofit organization in Louisville, KY that inspires students ages 6-8 from diverse communities to grow their imaginations through writing.

Jim James has spent the better part of almost two decades as the lead singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist of My Morning Jacket.  Through seven studio albums, My Morning Jacket has grown into one of the most acclaimed rock 'n' roll bands in the world. Alongside the band's recording and touring, James has maintained a steady flow of solo work and extra curricular activity. James released his debut solo record, REGIONS OF LIGHT AND SOUND OF GOD in 2013, followed three years later by 2016's ETERNALLY EVEN, which debuted at #1 on Billboard's "Top Alternative Albums" chart. James' third solo album, UNIFORM DISTORTION, arrived in June 2018 and was received with immediate acclaim. "There are enough artistic twists and turns to please even the most dedicated Jacket fan," declared American Songwriter, "showing that James remains as musically edgy as ever on an album that pulses with energy, enthusiasm and the restless spirit James has always personified."

October 2018 saw James return with UNIFORM CLARITY, a companion work to UNIFORM DISTORTION comprising acoustic renditions of its songs. "This time around, the 11 songs that graced the initial disc provide a serene counterpoint," wrote Paste, "one that coaxes the listener along and shares some sentiment along the way." "Ultimately, UNIFORM CLARITY reiterates that immutable fact already demonstrated on UNIFORM DISTORTION," declared Exclaim! "Jim James is a great songwriter."

James recently announced the release of UNIFORM DISTORTION/CLARITY: DELUXE EDITION, an expanded vinyl reissue joining the two albums for the first time. Pre-orders are available now HERE. Limited to 1,000 individually numbered units, UNIFORM DISTORTION/CLARITY: DELUXE EDITION arrives via ATO on May 17.

In addition to the newly announced dates, the "JIM JAMES PERFORMS UNIFORM DISTORTION" Tour - which sees James performing the complete album with a full band for the first time nationally along with selections from his entire catalogue - begins May 2at Charleston, SC's Charleston Music Hall and then continues through the month. James is also slated for full band sets at such U.S. festivals as Atlanta, GA's Shaky Knees Music Festival (May 4), Manchester, TN's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival (June 15), and Quincy, CA's High Sierra Music Festival (July 4-7).
