WILMINGTON — Though currently on the road with Head and the Heart through August, Dawes will pick up co-headliners Bahamas for a run of shows this fall.

“An Evening with Dawes and the Bahamas” will stop in Wilmington on Sept. 11 as the two artists play Greenfield Lake Amphitheater. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, June 10, at 10 a.m.

The show will feature two sets with Dawes backing Bahamas — consisting of Canadian musician Afie Jurvanen. Then Jurvanen will join Dawes’ set.

Dawes is touring in support of a new album, “Misadventures of Doomscroller,” preparing to drop July 22. The first two singles, “Someone Else’s Cafe / Doomscroller Tries to Relax” and “Comes In Waves,” already have been released. Made up of brothers Taylor (guitars and vocals) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums), along with Wylie Gelber (bass) and Lee Pardini (keyboards), Dawes’ indie folk sound can be heard across seven albums they released since 2009.

Bahamas has also been around since 2009 and released six LPs. The Grammy-nominated artist’s fifth studio album, “Sad Hunk,” received 2021’s Juno Award for Adult Alternative Album of the Year. His 2012 single “Lost in the Light” went gold through Music Canada and the Recording Industry Association of America, with 2014’s “All the Time” striking platinum via RIAA.

Pre-sell tickets to the GLA show are available now with passcode FALL22.
