Need another reason to love Alabama Shakes? Here’s one: they’re bringing Jonny Fritz on tour with them this summer. Fritz’s latest, Dad Country, is one of our favorite albums of 2013 so far. In the last issue of Elmore, writer Melissa Caruso praised Fritz’s leap in maturity and his “knack for timing, tone and texture.” Now, on tour with one of the hottest new rock bands in America, Fritz has a chance to give his great new songs a bigger audience. Keep an eye out; in a few years, he’ll be headlining the Capitol Theater himself.
