While we are all looking forward to Craig Finn’s first solo album away from The Hold Steady, the announcement of Craig Finn’s solo tour may be even better news, as anyone that has ever seen him perform can attest. Beginning in February, Finn will take Clear Heart Full Eyes on the road for a series of intimate dates, promoting the album that is due on January 24th via Vagrant.
The tour will kickoff in Texas, where the album was created and make its way around the midwest before ending on the Pacific coast. East coast fans will have to wait for a second set of tourdates. Check out the full tourdates below, and listen to first single “Honolulu Blues.”

Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
