Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors Gear up for Fall with Mumford & Sons Festival Appearance, John Hiatt Dates, Americana Music Festival Performance, Nationwide Headlining Tour & Tour Sampler for Charity.

Capping off a busy summer of festival appearances that included a pair of Bonnaroo sets, Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors are excited about their upcoming Fall headlining run, the Good Light Tour.  The nearly two-month long trek kicks off on September 26th in Indianapolis and is preceded by a week of West Coast dates with the legendary John Hiatt, a performance alongside Mumford and Sons at their Gentlemen of the Road Stopover series in Guthrie, OK on September 6th, as well as a performance at this year's Americana Music Festival in Nashville on September 18th.  The Good Light Tour will have the band visiting over 25 cities across the US including Chicago, Denver, and New York and will include a hometown show in Nashville at the Cannery Ballroom on November 8th.
 
To celebrate the tour and help spread the word on who's joining Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors for this fall run, the band partnered up with Noisetrade to offer the Good Light Tour Sampler.  A compilation showcasing tracks from Good Light along with select songs from each of the tour's openers; Emily Hearn, David Ramirez, Caleb, The Saint Johns, and Judah and the Lion. The sampler is available for pay-what-you-want with all proceeds being donated to Blood:Water Mission.  Blood:Water Mission is a grassroots organization that empowers communities to work together against the HIV/AIDS and water crises in Africa.  They have partnered with over 1,000 communities in Africa, providing life-saving water and health needs for over 800,000 people in 13 different countries.  
 
The Good Light Tour is just the latest tour in a series of dates, festivals and tours in support of Good Light, the band's most recent full-length album released on February 26th, 2013 on Good Time Records.  Recorded in Memphis, TN at Ardent Studios, the new album marked the group's highest debut on the Billboard 200 and hit #1 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart.  It also earned the group critical accolades with WXPN's Bruce Warren writing "Holcomb is a soulful and rootsy singer-songwriter deserving of a wider audience" and Paste weighing in with "Good Light displays Holcomb's strength as a songwriter."
 
In addition to the tour and tour sampler, the band recently announced the launch of their Spread Good Light campaign which was inspired by hearing from fans about their stories of sacrifice, suffering, and redemption in the face of hardship.  Spread Good Light encourages people to get involved by offering up their time and energy, donating resources to a cause, or volunteering in any capacity and to share these stories of "Good Light" with them and fellow fans by using the tag #goodlight on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and all over social media.
 
"Good Light," the title track and first single off of Good Light is impacting AAA and Non-Comm radio right now. Be sure to catch Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors on tour this fall with all confirmed dates below and for the most up to date information, check out http://www.drewholcomb.com/.
