Alabama Shakes have announced their 2015 tour and it includes a stop at Starlight Theater on May 29, a Friday. Also on the bill: Father John Misty.

The Shakes are scheduled to release their second album, “Sound and Color,” in April. It’s the followup to “Boys and Girls,” released in 2012. The band is lead by lead singer Brittany Howard, a powerful and emotive vocalist. The band performed two tracks from the new album on the most recent “Saturday Night Live.” (See below.)

The band has performed twice in Kansas City: at the Uptown Theater in March 2013 and at a Buzz Under The Stars show at Riverfront Park in August 2012.

Father John Misty, former member of Fleet Foxes, just released his second full-length, “I Love You, Honeybear.” The album is getting mostly high praise and positive reviews.
