M Ward will tour the United States in 2012.

M Ward is set to release his new album, A Wasteland Companion, on April 10th 2012, followed immediately by a 2012 US tour. The dates start at the Fillmore right here in our 7×7 wonderland, hangs around for both Coachella weekends, and then skips town at the beginning of May. Sorry, Entire Middle of the Country, but you guys don’t see much love on this one. We’ll put in a good word for you next time.
