Railroad Earth has unveiled plans for a show at the Paradise Rock Club on Saturday, October 30. Tickets are available through Ticketmaster for $30.

Railroad Earth is touring in support of their upcoming, self-titled album, which is due to be released on October 12. The new album is a bit of a departure for the New Jersey based bluegrass band and fans should notice very a different sound than previous albums. The band recently inked a deal with One Haven Music and worked with a new production team and artists and repertoire representative Michael Kaplan (The Allman Brothers Band, Los Lonely Boys) on the new album. “We kind of went for a much more of a production-oriented recording this time,” mandolin player John Skehan told The Weekender. “It’s kind of something a little more densely orchestrated…the opportunity presented itself to do something different, and we kind of decided it was time to take a chance.” The album features new songs from Todd Sheaffer plus an 11 minute instrumental from John Skehan on “Spring-Heeled Jack” which is the longest studio track to date for the band. Skehan also added that the band wasn’t sure when or to what extent they would begin including tracks from the new album in concerts.

Folk-rockers Donna the Buffalo will open the concert.
