Amos Lee plots return to New England

After delivering an impressive set at this year’s Newport Folk Festival, Amos Lee has revealed plans to return to New England this fall. Following a tour through the United Kingdom, Lee will return stateside for a tour that hits Boston’s House of Blues on Sunday, October 22. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $40.

The Philadelphia-based singer-songwriter continues to tour in support of his latest album, Mission Bell. Released at the end of January, the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200. Mission Bell, his fourth studio effort and first since 2008’s Last Days At the Lodge, was produced by Calexico’s Joey Burns. It features several special guests including Lucinda Williams, Willie Nelson, Iron & Wine’s Sam Beam and Priscilla Ahn, Pieta Brown and James Gadson.

“My last two records were a little rushed, because I was touring so much and running around a lot,” said Lee in a press release. “On this one, I took a year and a half and I just sat at home and wrote. I spent more time alone with these songs than I ever did in the past, which I think was really helpful. It was like going to a yard sale or a thrift store—you go through the first time and you might see something, but then you have to keep going back and forth because you always find something else there.”

Lee, who is currently touring the United Kingdom with Adele, recently released a Live from Soho collection on iTunes.

Other New England dates on Lee’s upcoming tour include the State Theatre in Portland, Maine on October 20 and the Lebanon Opera House in Lebanon, New Hampshire on October 21.
