Field Report has accomplished quite a lot for a band with fewer than 20 shows under its belt. Actually, the Milwaukee band built from the ashes of DeYarmond Edison (which also featured Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon in its ranks) and Conrad Plymouth has accomplished quite a lot for a band with any amount of shows under its belt.
Following a SXSW appearance, a supporting stint on Megafaun’s spring tour, and favorable press from the likes of Rolling Stone and Pitchfork, the Chris Porterfield-led project will soon add another accolade to the band’s already crowded mantle. Thursday, the band announced on its Facebook page that it will be supporting Counting Crows on the band’s Outlaw Roadshow summer tour.
Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz has been a Field Report supporter from the get-go, even inviting the band to play his aforementioned SXSW showcase.
The 17-show U.S. and Canada tour will stretch along the East Coast and through parts of the Midwest, though, sadly, no Wisconsin concerts are scheduled. But rest assured, Field Report will return to play a bevy of local shows in accordance with the release of its highly anticipated debut full-length.
