Martin Courtney announces summer 2022 US headlining tour

Today, Martin Courtney, the front man of indie rock mainstays Real Estate, announces his summer 2022 US tour in support of his second full-length solo album Magic Sign, including shows at The Lodge Room in Los Angeles on July 19 and at Elsewhere Zone 1 in Brooklyn on August 5. Support on all dates will be John Andrews & the Yawns, who will also serve as Courtney’s backing band. 

Martin Courtney’s tour kicks off shortly after the release of Magic Sign, which is out June 24, 2022 via Domino. Courtney has already unveiled lead single “Corncob,” which Stereogum calls “pastoral and plaintive" and Brooklyn Vegan says is "bathed in pedal steel and nostalgia."

Martin Courtney Magic Sign

Album | 24th June 2022

When Martin Courtney was a teenager, he knew how to get lost. In the late ‘90s and early 2000s, there’s Martin, loaded into a car with friends. They’re navigating the suburban sprawl of New Jersey with no destination in mind. He and his friends would “get thoroughly confused and look for familiar green signs with arrows pointing to towns we’d heard of. We’d call them ‘magic signs,’” he says. 

That’s the thing about magic: when you go looking for it, you start to see it everywhere.  And you can hear it twinklingly throughout the ten songs on Magic Sign, the second solo album written, performed, & produced by the Real Estate songwriter. The album was recorded, mixed & co-produced by Rob Schnapf. Additional performers include Matt Barrick, Oliver Hill, Kacey Johansing, and Tim Ramsey
