The upcoming tour celebrates Malin's hugely anticipated new album, SUNSET KIDS, due Friday, August 30 via Wicked Cool/The Orchard/Velvet Elk; pre-orders are available now HERE. Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winner Lucinda Williams and engineered by the late David Bianco (Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, AC/DC) and Geoff Sanoff (Little Steven and The Disciples of Soul, Fountains of Wayne), the album is heralded by the stellar first single, "Room 13 (Feat. Lucinda Williams)," streaming now HERE. The track - one of two songs on SUNSET KIDS co-written by Williams - had its exclusive world premiere via Rolling Stone, which simply raved, "With jangly guitars and a moody vibe, 'Room 13' is peak Malin."

SUNSET KIDS - which marks Malin's first new LP since 2015's OUTSIDERS - further includes the remarkable Malin/Williams duet, "Dead On," along with guest appearances from Joseph Arthur on three tracks and newly arranged versions of songs from his classic 2010 LP with the St. Marks Social, LOVE IT TO LIFE. Additional highlights include "Strangers and Thieves" co-written by and featuring vocals from Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong.

Hailed by the Times of London for "(writing) vivid songs with killer tunes and (singing) them with scary conviction," Malin first met Williams in the early 2000s at a jazz club in NYC's West Village. A fast friendship ensued, though it wasn't until 2017, when Williams invited Malin to Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl to see her open what would be the final Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers concert, that talk of her producing the album first took shape. Recorded in studios on both coasts during breaks in both artists' schedules, SUNSET KIDS proves Malin's most big-hearted and expansive collection to date, deeply informed by a number of people lost during the making of the LP, among them its very own engineer David Bianco as well as Main's lifelong friend and bandmate, Todd Youth, his father, and other dreamers.

"From the early frontier days of hardcore in New York to all the punk rock and singer/songwriter touring," says Malin, "it's all been about survival and reinvention. I wanted to make an open-sounding record with the space to tell these stories. I like to write about characters and people I meet along the way. The dreamers, schemers, hustlers, romantics, lovers, leavers and believers."
