Mike Doughty Announces All-Soul-Coughing-Songs Tour

Mike Doughty Announces All-Soul-Coughing-Songs Tour

Mike Doughty

Mike Doughty has confirmed a five-week, 32-city tour this fall, which will feature him and a new backing band performing exclusively songs by his former band, Soul Coughing. Doughty will perform songs from his new album of re-invented Soul Coughing tunes, as well as more songs that aren’t on the album.

The new album will be released on September 17 by Snack Bar (Doughty’s own imprint) and Megaforce Records. Doughty decided to go back to his old songs to recapture his original intent, as a 22-year-old immersed in the house, hip-hop and anti-folk music of early ’90s Manhattan. Doughty recorded with hip-hop/dance producer Good Goose (Menya, Ninjasonik, Mac Lethal, Homeboy Sandman) and upright bass player Catherine Popper (Jack White, Willie Nelson). The album’s full title is a list of the songs included: Circles Super Bon Bon Sleepless How Many Cans? True Dreams of Wichita Monster Man Mr. Bitterness Maybe I’ll Come Down St. Louise Is Listening I Miss the Girl Unmarked Helicopters The Idiot Kings So Far I Have Not Found the Science.

This tour will mark the end of a years-long period where Doughty refused to play Soul Coughing songs onstage, in favor of songs from his seven solo albums. “My memoir was a big fat ball of darkness,” Doughty says, referring to his 2012 memoir, “The Book of Drugs.” “I found myself wanting to figure out who I was, where I was, and what I meant when I wrote the Soul Coughing songs. I want to find what I love in them.”

Doughty will be accompanied on the tour by Popper and drummer Pete Wilhoit.
