After captivating the crowds and stealing a heart or ten on his maiden trek to Australia earlier this year, Father John Misty is set to impress yet again with a headline shows in Sydney this February, 2013.

Josh Tillman stepped out from behind the drum stool in Fleet Foxes to record his first album “Fear Fun” under the moniker Father John Misty. “Fear Fun” earned him a rapturous critical response worldwide for his smooth songwriting, sweet melodies and literate lyrics.

Misty had the crowds in awe when he played the G.W. McLennan Tent at Splendour In The Grass and sold out his shows at Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory and Melbourne’s The Corner Hotel – the live experience is nothing short of captivating, mesmerizing and just a little bit kooky. Not knowing what to expect from this American musician live is half the fun, he has his fans eating out of his hands.

“He makes the performance as important as the music. Long story short, he has a fucking good time. And so do we.” – Inpress

“His voice remained in fine form (despite some rather energetic physical interpretations), and every story came to life as he sang it. The energy grew as his set progressed, the music shifted from folk to rockabilly, everyone became considerably more disheveled, his hips gyrated impressively fast and his mic stand refused to stay in one piece until eventually chaos seemed to erupt on the stage.” – Drum Media

The endearing and very charming, Father John Misty gets his swagger on this February. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, November 14.

“Fear Fun” is out now through Inertia Music/Sub Pop. Tickets are on sale 9am local venue time on Wednesday, November 14.
