George Lewis Jr., the man behind Twin Shadow, has announced a new tour in support of his sophomore album Confess. His last two tours stuck with a theme — Hair Cut and Ton Up respectively — and this one stays in that same vein with the title True Story. George himself took the time to write about why he chose this title and its personal implications in his own life. Read what he has to say below and then check out whether he’ll be coming to a city near you!

“You know when someone tells a story and says “crazier things have happened!” well, you always wish they would just tell you that crazier thing. Like, why would you want to hear a story that’s not as good? My father told me great stories my whole life, I often wonder if his stories influenced the way I write music. When talk came up of Twin Shadow hitting the road this year I thought again about how we could make each show special, how each city could have a unique piece of Twin Shadow.

I thought about my father’s stories, I thought about the stories I tell my friends and I thought this tour would be a good place to share them, so for every city we play my father or myself will tell you one True Story. 24 Cities. 24 Stories.  A story for New York, A story for Toronto, A Story for every show on the tour. A gem from the depths of my fathers life and a stone from the recent corners of mine, tales retold from lovers and friends. Welcome to the Twin Shadow True Story Tour.”
