Gov't Mule unleash "Prepare to Shout!" run across U.S., Europe
Southern jam-rockers Gov't Mule have a spring and summer outing of North America planned, including several festival stops, before heading to Europe.
The four-piece band, featuring singer/guitarist Warren Haynes, drummer Matt Abs, bassist Jorgen Carlsson and keyboardist Danny Louis, will kick off the road work with a late April (4/18-20) appearance at Wanee Festival in Live Oak, FL. The official "Prepare to Shout!" tour gets underway April 21 in North Charleston, SC, and pushes through a May 3 performance in New Orleans. Several festival gigs follow, wrapping up with a performance at Manchester, TN's Bonnaroo Festival June 13-16.
The Revivalists will handle opening duties on the outing, after which a European leg follows. Information about tickets for the entire itinerary is available at the band's website.
Gov't Mule most recently unveiled "Mulennium," a live release which surfaced in 2010. "By A Thread," the band's ninth and most recent studio set, hit retailers in 2009 and was the first album to feature Carlsson, who stepped in in 2008 after the departure of Andy Hess.
In October, the Southern outfit unleashed "The Georgia Bootleg Box," a six-disc live collection released via Evil Teen Records. The set features the original trio of Haynes, Abts and the late Allen Woody, as well as special guests Derek Trucks and Tinsley Ellis. The live set showcases the group's 1996 three-night run in the state, with shows at Athens' Georgia Theater, Atlanta's The Roxy and Macon's Elizabeth Reed Music Hall.
