Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals Announce Tour Dates with Thundercat

Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals

Anderson .Paak and the Free Nationals will be hitting the road this year for the “Best Teef In The Game” tour. Anchored by bassist Kelsey Gonzalez, the band beings their trek in Nashville, Tennessee on May 17th before crisscrossing the U.S. with a pair of Canadian concerts mixed in.

As if that’s not a good enough show, bass monster Thundercat will be providing support for the entire tour. Earl Sweatshirt, Noname, Mac DeMarco, and Jessie Reyez will be on select dates.

Paak recently released the third album in his trilogy, called Oxnard. Now he’s announced there will be a fourth in the cycle with a record coming April 12th called Ventura. “Growing up in Oxnard gave me the grit and the church to find this voice of mine,” Paak writes. “One town over I went further and found my depth. The duality of each place inspired me greatly and from that, I made two albums at the exact same time but held one back because that would have been too many songs to perform live for you all! I like ending things on an even number so welcome to Ventura.”
