Florida-based Roadkill Ghost Choir continue touring behind their self-released debut EP Quiet Light with a string of dates supporting Band of Horses, kicking off April 8 in Denver. The folk rock sextet is also confirmed to play The Governor’s Ball in New York City, Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta, and numerous dates at SXSW in Austin. The band has also just been announced as part of Mountain Jam 2013, taking place June 6 to June 9. Full itinerary is included below.

 

About the Quiet Light EP, Absolute Punk said: “The power and grace showcased in just these five songs is enough reason to think that this Florida band is just a few short steps away from making a masterwork.” Consequence of Sound added “Standout cuts like ‘Beggars Guild’ and ‘Drifter’ are driving folk numbers that showcase a taste for Wilco as well as Fleetwood Mac…you can just about feel Radiohead under “Devout”, a mark of Roadkill Ghost Choir’s impish edge with broad appeal.”

 

Following the EP’s release, the band has been gaining momentum with radio support including SiriusXM’s The Loft, KCSN/Los Angeles, and WXPN/Philly.
