Trey Anastasio has announced a fall tour for his Trey Anastasio Band that will kick off the day after Thanksgiving in Chicago. Also announced today is that the current lineup of the band met with Trey recently and recorded a new album called Paper Wheels, which will be out in early 2015.
They even offered up a free download from the album, a track called “Bounce”, free via trey.com.
Trey Anastasio Band’s new album, Paper Wheels, isn’t due out until early 2015, but the group will be previewing some of the new songs during its 2014 Fall Tour. The run will kick off on November 28 (the day after Thanksgiving) at the Aragon Ballroom in Chicago and include two-night stands at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC, the Orpheum Theatre in Boston and New York City’s Beacon Theatre.
Beginning today, fans can get a free download of “Bounce,” a song from Paper Wheels, at trey.com. While much preparation went into Paper Wheels in terms of demos and rehearsals with TAB, the album was recorded in less than a week at The Barn, Anastasio’s reconstructed barn-turned-rehearsal/recording studio located outside Burlington, Vermont. Inspired by the immediacy of Stax-era recordings, Anastasio and his band mates recorded the songs live, playing and singing together in one room and often requiring no more than one or two takes.
Paper Wheels was produced and engineered by Bryce Goggin, who helmed several Phish albums and has also partnered with Anastasio on previous solo projects, and mixed by Elliot Scheiner (Steely Dan, Van Morrison).
Tickets for all shows on TAB’s Fall Tour will be available through a real time presale beginning this Thursday, October 9, at Noon ET at http://treytickets.tix.musictoday.com. Tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Thursday, October 16. See below for itinerary and specific on sale times or visit www.trey.com for further details.
