Mitski Announces U.S. Fall Tour

Singer/songwriter Mitski is continuing to make her mark on the indie rock world with the release of her highly acclaimed fourth studio album, Puberty 2. After wrapping up her summer U.S. tour in late July, she’ll be headlining venues in the Southeast, Midwest and East Coast.

The 25-year-old was born in Japan and studied composition at SUNY Purchase College in Westchester, N.Y. In between she grew up in numerous places including China, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Turkey. She shares her experience of feeling “half Japanese, half America but not fully either” on the Puberty 2 track “Your  Best American Girl.”

In February 2015 Rolling Stone named Mitski as one of the “10 New Artists You Need to Know,” with a recommendation directed to fans of Rilo Kiley, Jessica Lea Mayfield and Liz Phair.

This year Puberty 2 landed on RS’s list of the “45 Best Albums Of 2016 So Far.”

Over at, the LP was rated 8.5 and one of the site’s “Best New Music.”

“It’s a resounding personal statement and the clearest sign that while she might be an ‘indie rock’ artist, she currently stands apart from – and above – much of the genre. She tackles bigger themes, gambles with higher musical stakes, and digs deeper into herself,” Pitchfork Senior Editor Jillian Mapes writes.

A write-up from declares, “Mitski is the rock star we need in 2016.”

Her next tour will take her to Europe, with late September and early October gigs in Ireland, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, France and the U.K.
