Mark Mulcahy will tour his new record, ‘The Possum in the Driveway’, in selected cities throughout the summer. The shows will feature the cast of musicians who played on the critically acclaimed record and will be a performance of the album in it’s entirety.

Coming off nearly three years of touring with Miracle Legion and Polaris, these are the first Mark Mulcahy solo shows since 2014. “I haven’t toured as myself in a while”says Mulcahy, “I thought it’d be nice to play just the record and maybe a couple of chestnuts then get back home.”

‘The Possum in the Driveway’ is Mulcahy’s fifth solo album,his first since 2013’s ‘Dear Mark J. Mulcahy I Love You’. Possum was released on golden-yellow vinyl for Record Store Day and is now available on all formats and from Mezzotint.com.

Philip B. Price
Philip B. Price is best known as the lead singer and schemer behind the New England-based melancholic folk/pop band Winterpills, but his CV stretches far back into the late 80s and draws on minimalist/jagged art-rock, lo-fi pop, power pop, dance-noise, post-punk pre-emo, flowery brit-folk, and hooky shoegaze. Currently on a semi-hiatus from Winterpills duties, summer of 2017 will see the release of a huge amount of wide-ranging back-catalog material (12 albums total) in preparation for a brand-new solo double album in early 2018 (his first solo outing since 2004). His spare, riveting live shows, with his quavering irish tenor, spidery guitarwork and dense wordplay, manage to make intimacy feel massively anthemic, and grinding rock seem like a close-whispered romantic inside joke.

“Price’s songs are mournful, slow-exploding and lyrically dazzling.” - Rolling Stone
