Old Crow Medicine Show map summer tour
Old Crow Medicine Show will hit the road this summer for a tour in support of their forthcoming album Carry Me Back. The six-piece string band will make their way to Massachusetts for a performance at the House of Blues in Boston on Thursday, August 9. Tickets for the show, which will also feature openers The Lumineers and The Milk Carton Kids are now on sale through Live Nation for $35 and $45.
Carry Me Back, the band’s fourth studio release and follow-up to 2008′s Tennessee Pusher, will hit stores on July 17. The album was recorded at Nashville’s legendary Sound Emporium studios and produced by Ted Hutt (The Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys).
“The greatness of an old-time string band lies in its performance,” said OCMS member Ketch Secor in a press release. “The way it percolates, rattling itself almost to the edge. When you’ve got a top-notch studio like Sound Emporium, and 12 strong tunes in the works, and the time and patience it takes to get it right–that’s when great performances can be captured.”
OCMS is also a part of the tour documentary “Big Easy Express”, which chronicled the band’s tour last summer with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros. Dubbed the “Railroad Revival” tour, the three bands traveled together on vintage train cars, playing a series of shows at stops along the way. The film will be released on DVD on July 24.
