Snarky Puppy Adds Fall Dates to Empire Central Tour

Snarky Puppy

Snarky Puppy has announced a new leg of their “Empire Central” tour that will take the crossover band across North America this fall. Beginning on September 8th, the trek will be a victory lap for their GRAMMY award-winning record, Empire Central, which took home the award for Best Contemporary Instrumental Album.

Michael League and company will begin in Indiana before jumping to Vancouver, British Columbia, and cutting down the West Coast. They’ll snake down to Arizona and back up to Colorado before cutting through Texas and wrapping up in New Orleans, Louisiana, on October 10th.

Empire Central saw Snarky Puppy return to their roots by recording live in the studio with an audience. Check out the League composition “RL’s”:

The new dates are in addition to their upcoming spring run. See their full itinerary below:
