John Darnielle Battles Dragons On Tour

Despite his pluralised moniker, John Darnielle remains the sole driving force of Californian indie pop rock outfit The Mountain Goats. With an ever-evolving roster of live and recording musicians surrounding him, Darnielle revels in his goth-tinged melancholy, fusing a winning combination of wry insight and black humour in his lyrics (which earned him the accolade of 'America's best non-hip-hop artist' by the New Yorker) with lingering melodic hooks and satisfying song craft. Darnielle brings his spell-binding songwriting to venues across America to support his brand new album In League With Dragons. 

Prolific to say the least, the enigmatic performer and longtime Dungeons & Dragons fan explores new territory on his 17th album. Exploring the realms of fantasy and sci-fi, the record began its life as a rock opera about a fictional coastal land called Riversend that's ruled by a good-hearted wizard. Darnielle has also turned his talents to novel writing, having penned Wolf in White Van, a novel about a reclusive game designer, in 2014.
