String Cheese Incident plot summer course ahead of new album
The String Cheese Incident will finish out the summer on a sporadic festival outing in anticipation of their first new studio album in nearly nine years.
The six-piece jam band will take on several multi-night stops in the coming weeks, beginning with three consecutive performances in Austin, TX, that start July 4. The tour bus then travels to Louisville, KY, for three shows (7/12-14), and finishes the month with two gigs (7/26-27) in Morrison, CO.
The band is also scheduled to make their annual stop at Horning's Hideout in North Plains, OR, Aug. 2-4, as well as appearances at Interlocken Festival in Arrington, VA (9/5-6). The band will host its first-ever Hulaween Festival in Live Oak, FL (10/31-11/2), with performances each night, as well as support from Big Gigantic and STS9.
The three Austin performances will be webcast live at the band's website.
The String Cheese Incident will celebrate their 20th anniversary later this year. The outfit is also hard at work on a new studio album, which is being produced by Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads) and will be released in early 2014, according to a press release.
"We just finished recording our new record so it will be great to continue playing some of our newer tunes, a few of which have been re-worked," keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth said in a press release. "Rehearsals in Boulder have been going really well. It's gonna be a fun summer."
