Jesse Malin Practices The Fine Art Of Touring This Spring

Ex-D Generation mouthpiece Jesse Malin will hit the road this spring in support of his debut solo album, The Fine Art Of Self Destruction. The tour will kick off on April 7 at Club CafÈ in Pittsburgh, PA, and will run through May 12 in Burlington, VT. Jesse will hit most major US markets (except Chicago!) and some secondary and Canadian markets along the way. The Fine Art Of Self Destruction was released domestically on January 28 via Artemis to some solid reviews.

The album was produced by prolific singer/songwriter Ryan Adams, who also lent backing vocals and lead guitar to most of the 12-track release. Melissa Auf der Maur (Hole, Smashing Pumpkins) contributes backing vocals as well. Fans of Ryan Adams will LOVE this album. It's an urban-influenced alt-country record with impressive songwriting and (obviously) fabulous production. Check out the tour dates below.
