Joseph Arthur Readies Fall Tour, TV Visits

The outing comes in support of his new album, "Nuclear Daydream," due Sept. 19 via his new Lonely Astronaut imprint.

As tipped here last month, singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur will kick off a fall North American tour Sept. 25 in Philadelphia. The outing comes in support of his new album, "Nuclear Daydream," due Sept. 19 via his new Lonely Astronaut imprint.

Arthur will also make several TV appearances in the coming weeks, beginning Sunday (Aug. 13) on A&E's "Breakfast With the Arts," where he will perform two new songs and sit for an interview with KCRW's Nic Harcourt. He will also appear Oct. 10 on CBS' "The Late Show With David Letterman" and Oct. 17 on "The Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson."

The artist has recently been decamped in Los Angeles while working on another new album, which is expected to be released next year. The sessions have featured contributions from multi-instrumentalist Mathias Schneeberger and Twilight Singers leader Greg Dulli.

Before the headlining dates, Arthur will perform alongside Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and many others at the Osheaga festival, to be held Sept. 2-3 in Montreal. On Oct. 28, Arthur will perform at the Voodoo Music Experience in New Orleans, where he previously lived.
