M. Ward: New Album, Palace Of Fine Arts In March, Presale 12/09 At 10 AM

After a year or so of touring almost exclusively in support of She & Him, it looks like M. Ward is back on his own. Ward will be releasing a brand new record on February 17th entitled Hold Time. It's been over two years since Post War dropped, so we couldn't be more excited to see new material from the man. The record (whose covert art you can see above) features guest appearances by Lucinda Williams, Jason Lytle, and Zooey Deschanel.

Ward is also mounting a tour in support of the record, which includes a March 5th date at The Palace Of Fine Arts here in San Francisco. You can snag tickets in the Another Planet presale starting Tuesday (tomorrow) morning at ten. Click here, the password is "holdtime".

We here at HAD have seen Ward live three or four times now, and we're always thoroughly impressed by his shows, both solo and with band. Matt's (that's what the M.'s for, kids!) simply a fantastic musician, and the consistently with which he effortlessly delivers moving versions of his songs is simply remarkable. Highly recommended.
