Today, Mandolin Orange's new album Tides Of A Teardrop is out on Yep Roc Records. Tides Of A Teardrop has garnered praise from NPR Music, the Washington Post, Rolling Stone, and Paste, who've deemed it "quietly devastating."

To kick off their biggest tour ever, Mandolin Orange will perform a sold-out hometown show tonight at the 2700-capacity Durham Performing Arts Center. Many of the subsequent tour dates are also sold out, including DC, Brooklyn, Boston, Chicago, and San Francisco. Mandolin Orange will also make their headlining debut at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium later this year and have been announced as a headliner at this year's Pickathon festival. Full tour dates below.

Mandolin Orange are coming off an incredible 2018 that saw them rack up almost 50 million streams from over 5 million fans on Spotify, sell out every single one of their headlining US performances and make new inroads in Europe.

Praise For Mandolin Orange and 'Tides Of A Teardrop'
"Tides of a Teardrop is engineered to settle worried minds, slow the blood and lend an empathetic ear...It's palliative but never boring, sweet but never cloying, worn but never tired." - NPR Music

"Now a decade into a career that has seen it help redefine American roots music for a younger generation, the duo Mandolin Orange has officially mastered blending engaging storytelling with acoustic elements of bluegrass, folk and country." - Washington Post

"A compelling tale of finding release and joy in spite of darkness and temptation... It's a new step for the band, and one that's rewarding to hear." - Rolling Stone

"One of roots music's most engaging acts." - Garden & Gun

"The North Carolina duo appreciate the gentle beauty in well-executed folk, and their Americana-tinted songs are truly calming affairs." - Uproxx

"Quietly devastating... wistful instrumentation sets the bleak, lonely stage for Marlin's plainspoken odes to his mother." - Paste

"Mandolin Orange have long kept up a pace that belies their lithe, organic music." - Guitar Player

"There is an extremely small pool of artists who exist on an entirely different plane. Those whose music is transcendent, transformative, and pure magic. Mandolin Orange exists on that latter plane." - Red Line Roots
