PRE-ORDERS AVAILABLE TODAY FOR MOBLEY’S NEW EP YOUNG & DYING IN THE OCCIDENT SUPREME COMING OUT FEBRUARY 19 VIA LAST GANG RECORDS
MOBLEY UNVEILS A TRAILER FOR HIS HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED NEW VISUAL EP
GUEST ARTISTS ANNOUNCED FOR HIS UPCOMING DEVIL IN A DAYDREAM VIRTUAL TOUR WITH ALL PROCEEDS GOING TO PANDEMIC RELIEF FOR VENUSES AND THE DAWA FUND
Toronto, ON – January 29, 2021 – Today, Last Gang Records announces that preorders are now available for, Young & Dying in the Occident Supreme, the highly-anticipated new record from Mobley dropping on February 19. The Texas-based musician and filmmaker also shares a trailer for his ambitious visual EP that’s accompanying the record, which can be found here.
To support the release, Mobley will be kicking off his recently announced virtual tour on Thursday, February 25. The Devil In A Daydream tour will be a series of nine virtual shows performed in unconventional natural and urban spaces, uniquely intimate and captured on a cinematic scale. The diverse film locations include Mustang Island State Park, Austin FC’s brand-new soccer stadium, the Circuit of the Americas Formula 1 racetrack and the architecturally-striking Austin Central Library, among others. Tickets and more information are available at mobleywho.com/tour.
Mobley also announces today that he’s invited some friends to join him on the virtual tour, including Shallou, Lawrence, Magic Giant, James Petralli (of White Denim), Kam Franklin (of The Suffers), Sarah Jaffe, Spencer Ludwig, Michigander and many more. Artists hail from each of the cities represented by the tour (see below for full list of confirmed artists). Mobley and these artists are donating every dollar of their share of the funds raised to support each of the partnering venues and their furloughed staff, as well as to DAWA Fund, a nonprofit organization providing direct financial relief for musicians, artists, therapists, service industry workers and social workers of colour.
Said Mobley of the virtual tour, “I wanted to find a way to connect with my audience that was safe during the pandemic, but that also offered them more of an event than the solo, homebound livestreams I’ve done before. I feel incredibly lucky that so many talented artists, storied venues and captivating locations have agreed to be part of this experiment. I really think that people who join us for these virtual shows will enjoy the experience we’ve crafted for them.”
Mobley has also had the honour of being nominated for three 2021 Austin Music Awards, including Musician of the Year, Song of the Year for his single, James Crow and Best Innovation/Business Pivot for his 2020 Curbside Tour. Voting for the AMA’s ends on February 1. To cast your vote, see here. For more information on Mobley, visit mobleywho.com.
