Allison Crutchfield announces North American tour, featuring support from Vagabon

Following the January 27, 2017 release of her Merge Records debut Tourist in This Town, Allison Crutchfield will hit the road with her band The Fizz (now a quartet) and embark on a North American tour.

Crutchfield recently released a video for the album’s “Dean’s Room,” directed by Lara-Jean Gallagher. Her February dates include support from fellow Philadelphians Pinkwash and Radiator Hospital, while New York’s Vagabon will join her for March and April shows.

Tourist in This Town is available for pre-order now on CD, LP, and cassette in the Merge store, or digitally here. The first 150 LP orders in our store will receive hot magenta vinyl. For pre-orders of the exclusive album + tank top bundle, the shirt will be shipped immediately, prior to the album’s January release. All pre-orders will include a free sticker sheet, while supplies last.

Tourist in This Town was made at Uniform Recording in Philadelphia with Jeff Zeigler, who is known for his work with Kurt Vile, Steve Gunn, and Mary Lattimore, among others. “This record marked a sonic transition in the way I think about the element of space in music, and I attribute that mainly to Jeff,” says Allison. “His arsenal and knowledge of analog synths, along with his ear for spatial addition and subtraction within a song, really sculpted this album and impacted me artistically forever.”
