I The Mighty recently hit the road with Hail the Sun and Good Tiger for a US run in support of their latest album 'Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go'. Catch the four-piece on the road with Hail the Sun and Good Tiger!

Dressing up as Stranger Things characters, playing sold out shows across the country, hanging with their BFFs Hail the Sun—it's safe to say that I The Mighty are having a pretty rad time on their current North American tour. Since it kicked off in San Francisco last month, the guys have been hitting cities like Denver, St. Louis, Atlanta, and Toronto, performing songs for fans off their latest album, Where The Mind Wants To Go / Where You Let It Go.

A far cry from their post-hardcore days, the band's fourth LP finds Brent Walsh, Ian Pedigo, Chris Hinkley, and Blake Dahlinger at their most experimental yet, blending top-notch lyricism with powerhouse instrumentals and a fresh perspective. Case and point? "Chaos in Motion" a genre-bending stunner that feels destined for radio play.

 

We joined the California natives on the road to see what goes on behind-the-scenes, and turns out, the shenanigans are just as epic as we thought. From playing their biggest headline show to date in Brooklyn to recreating the "Abbey Road" cover art in Boston, check out the band's Tour Diary below, then make sure to Track them on on Bandsintown to find out when they'll be in your city!

Our Tour Manager Matt, a.k.a. Bear, reflects on our Denver, CO show a few days prior. A man had walked into our van and attempted to steal one of our backpacks. Matt showed his bear strength by throwing a grown man five feet across the sidewalk (though he likes to claim it was 15 ft).

We play our biggest headline show to date to an incredibly passionate crowd. Many people spent a good portion of the night riding the hands of others including Chris (top) and Brent (middle). During our final song, a number of fans surprised us with an explosion of confetti.
