Mike Spine & Barbara Luna Fall/Winter/Spring Tour Dates, News, Etc.

Barbara Luna and I are out on the road again in support of the Forage & Glean double album anthology (available in hard copy here and on most download and streaming platforms). We’ll be touring in the USA until the spring of 2019, then we will be touring in Europe again, then again in the US. As always, thanks for your continued support and if you want to see us somewhere, please contact us at: info {at} mikespine (dot) com !

Thanks to all those who came out to the album release in Seattle. It was a great night of music and friends. Here’s what we know so far for the upcoming tour schedule. We’ll keep updating as things fill in in the US and EU. And here are a few reviews from the USA and EU for Forage & Glean:

“Gorgeously arranged folk-rock…Likely to get stuck in your head after the first spin.” — TrebleZine

“Spine balances punk energy, his own political frustrations and bursts of guitar shredding with catchy harmonies, making for a sound that brings to mind the likes of Joe Strummer and Ted Leo but with a slightly gritty edge.” — Glide Magazine

“Personal, political, and variations thereof emerge on this fascinating new collection of Mike Spine’s best music.” — Pop Matters

“Forage & Glean Volumes I & II is for now the best folk and punk rock collection of 2018.” Translated from Dutch at Real Roots Cafe

Review in Dutch from Belgium and a chance to win a copy of the album from Rootstime.

Review in Swedish at Ung Tro.
