Toro y Moi announces fall tour, giving us much needed chill on this hot day


You don’t need Rob Thomas out here in these streets telling us it’s a hot one — we’re fully aware. Thankfully, Boston and a host of other cities are getting a needed dose of chill, as Toro y Moi has announced his first United States tour since 2015.

The Outer Peace Tour kicks off November 1 in Santa Barbara, California, and wraps up November 17 in Chaz Bear’s South Carolina hometown of Columbia. Along the way across these new 11 shows is a November 9 romp at Royale in Boston; tickets go on sale Friday (July 13) at 11 a.m. through Bowery Boston.

Toro y Moi is stretching it out across the U.S.A. to both show off last year’s Boo Boo, Bear’s fifth album under this chillwave-leading moniker, and a new record due out in early 2019. The producer and songwriter has been uber busy recently, as just last week he released an EP collaboration with Philadelphia rapper Rome Fortune called Toro Y Rome Vol. 1. Listen to it below.
