Eisley Goes Over the River and Through the Woods


A couple of weeks ago, Texas-based family band Eisley asked their fans for tour name suggestions. “No rules,” said the band. “Think conceptual, literal, seasonal.” The result is a two-month US tour, dubbed the Over The River And Through The Woods Tour. Over the course of the tour, Eisley will play 37 gigs in cities ranging from Lake Charles to New York.

Eisley is on the brink of releasing their third LP. This upcoming album will be the band’s first since it’s split with the Warner/Reprise label earlier this year. See the full list of tour dates down below, and check back soon for more information on the release of their album.
