After a two-month tour in support of his acoustic album I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning, Mr. Bright Eyes Conor Oberst will set out with Omaha scenemates The Faint to plug in and play selections from the very electric Digital Ash In a Digital Urn as part of a co-headlining tour that begins on April 28 at Kansas City's Uptown Theater.

The first--and perhaps only--chance to hear Digital Ash... tracks played live and loud will include the obligatory stop at Coachella and features five nights at New York City's Webster Hall.

The Faint members Joel Peterson, Jacob Thiele and Clark Baechle will sit in as the core of Oberst's backing "supergroup," which will also include Mike Mogis, Cursive cellist Gretta Cohn, Yeah Yeah Yeah's guitarist Nick Zinner, violinist Anton Patnzer, and Berg Sans Nipple percussionist Shane Aspegren.
