In addition, LaMontagne announces his 2018 Part Of The Light Summer Tour.  The 31-date tour will start at Sasquatch in George, Washington on May 27th and end on July 10th in Denver, CO. Joining LaMontagne on the road will be very special guest Neko Case.  Starting today at 2:00 PM ET through Sunday, March 4th 10:00 PM local time, fans who pre-order the new album on Ray’s website will be given a code on Monday, March 5th to purchase tickets to the tour early.  Tickets to the general public will be available starting Friday, March 9th 10:00 AM local time at www.raylamontagne.com, LiveNation.com or the Live Nation App.

Each release from his catalogue over the last 13 years carries its own character and feel. Having worked with producers Ethan Johns, Dan Auerbach of the Black Keys and Jim James of My Morning Jacket, Ray’s vast sonic catalogue has been called everything from “a perfect throwback to the lost art of the album-length format,” from Entertainment Weekly to “epic and magical,” from Rolling Stone and “gorgeous and ambitious,” from EsquireNPR’s All Things Considered said

that Ray throughout the course of his career “has continued to push himself in different directions,” while People called Ray a “marvel of nature.”
