Killer Mike has just announced a 19-date US tour supporting his forthcoming solo album MICHAEL (out June 16 via Loma Vista) – his first major solo outing since touring in support of his 2012 album R.A.P Music. Billed as Killer Mike and the Midnight Revival, “The High & Holy Tour” kicks off July 10 in Birmingham and makes its way across the US, including an appearance at Pitchfork Music Festival and a performance at New York City’s iconic Apollo Theatre, before wrapping up August 5 in New Orleans, so on sale at 10 am local time Friday, with a special fan presale on Wednesday.

The announcement comes on the heels of his new single “Don’t Let The Devil (feat EL-P & thankugoodsir),” which, contextualized alongside other recent singles “RUN (ft. Young Thug)” and “TALK’N THAT SHIT!,” previews the scope of MICHAEL, a holistic introduction to the totality of Michael Render, a lifelong rap fiend seeped in the sounds of multiple eras of southern rap flows, Sunday church service, and barbershop discourse.
