In the years since Omaha indie-rockers Cursive released their 2006 album Happy Hollow, they’ve toured in support of heavy-metallers Mastodon, released a remix EP, and otherwise mostly laid low. The group has reportedly finished recording their next album, making this tour somewhat of a victory lap.

Plus, maybe he’ll play some licks he learned from Mastodon. With Twin Thousands and McCarthy Trenching.
