Ron Pope to show off ‘Work’ for US fans on fall tour
Nashville meets Brooklyn in country rocker Ron Pope’s forthcoming album, Work. He’s not necessarily advocating for labor. Pope just premiered the project’s lead single "Let’s Get Stoned," a song that marks a sharp transition from work to play.
"We’d been on tour for months at that point and I was kind of slowly dying from not enough sleep, too many meals eaten standing up, not enough sleep, etc," Pope told Relix. "I was all jacked up on probably five cups of coffee and, without me knowing, the rest of the band was walking around outside and bumped into someone who offered them a joint. They came in loose as hell."
Work, due out Aug. 18, follows Pope’s 2016 homegrown effort Ron Pope & The Nighthawks, which he recorded with his six-piece band in his native Georgia. Pope will showcase his unique blend of alternative country, southern rock and folk on a fall tour, which kicks off Sept. 28 in New York City and runs through October. He will swing by Philadelphia’s Trocadero Theatre on Oct. 8 (grab tickets here). Check out all the dates below.
