Acclaimed rock singer-songwriter, Van William, is joining another sparkling artist on the rise, Lissie, for a national tour kicking off at The Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles on May 2nd. The 13-date tour will hit major markets across the US and Canada – full routing is below. Van is currently on the road in Europe with Swedish duo First Aid Kit, in support of his acclaimed debut album, Countries, out now via Fantasy Records.

Countries has been met with excitement both here and overseas. The Los Angeles Times called it, “A brash, confident folk-rock statement that affirms William's place in contemporary L.A. songcraft.” And UPROXX praised Countries as, “One of 2018’s first great folk-rock records.”

Inspired by his love for David Lynch’s cult classic film, Wild at Heart, Van just released a captivating video clip, directed by Silvia Grav and featuring Caitlin Gerard (American Crime) for the new single, Before I Found You. Before I Found You is the follow-up to the album’s first single, the Top 5 Triple A track, Revolution featuring First Aid Kit.
