Band hits the road in support of 'Call It What It Is'

Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals are embarking upon a summer tour, performing at venues throughout the U.S. now through August in support of their recently released album on Stax Records, "Call It What It Is."

The band headlines "Tuesday in the Park" at Artpark on July 12. Tickets and more information can be found at www.artpark.net.

Released in April, "Call It What It Is" has generated glowing reviews both in the U.S. and abroad.

"Not only is this a treat for longtime fans, but hopefully a sign for others to take Harper's lead, creating relevant, incisive songs that are lyrically, musically and philosophically as inspirational and provocative as those here," stated American Songwriter. 

The Associated Press hailed it as "Ben Harper at his best ... one of the most versatile and sensitive voices of the last three decades."

The acclaimed project has garnered major media coverage, including features in USA Today, The Atlantic, Rolling Stone, Billboard, GQ, AfroPunk, Uncut, MOJO and Entertainment Weekly to name a few. Ben and the band have also performed on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," ESPN's "SportsCenter," "CONAN" and "Charlie Rose."
