Old Crow Medicine Show plot "Carry Me Back" tour
Tennessee folk rockers Old Crow Medicine Show will follow up the forthcoming release of "Carry Me Back" with a U.S. outing this summer.
After headlining the ROMP Festival in Owensboro, KY, June 30, the folk band will kick-off the official headlining tour with a July 19 performance in Indianapolis, IN. The 20-city trek visits clubs and theaters throughout the eastern half of the nation before finishing up Aug. 25 in Atlanta, GA. A two-night stand Aug.2-3 in Washington, D.C. is also on the books.
Ticket information for the summertime run is available now at the group's website.
Old Crow Medicine Show will unveil "Carry Me Back," the outfit's fourth studio effort, July 17 via ATO Records. The six-piece band recorded the collection at Nashville's legendary Sound Emporium studios with the help of producer Ted Hutt (Dropkick Murphys, Gaslight Anthem).
"Ted Hutt asked us to really dig deep as artists, as songwriters, to get to the heart of the matter of these songs and, especially, not to settle for anything less than their greatness," singer Ketch Secor said in a press release. "For me, 'Carry Me Back' is all about the songs, how they line up, intertwine, switch partners, and promenade home. Each of these songs was an accident waiting to happen."
The impending July release comes four years after the 2008 drop of "Tennessee Pusher," which peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Bluegrass Albums chart.
