Beginning the tour on August 25 in Virginia, the group will tour through the end of the year in support of their forthcoming double album Before the Frost, Until The Freeze, which is set to hit stores on September 1. The first album of the project will be sold while the second album will be given away for free exclusively through a unique download code included in the purchased album.

The album was recorded in front of an intimate audience of the band’s fans over a series of five nights at Levon Helm Studios in Woodstock, New York. “I think we fulfilled a musical commitment to continue on the golden road of artistic independence,” said lead singer Chris Robinson in a press release. “Approaching 20 years into our careers, we still are ambitious enough to push ourselves to create something unique that we have never done before.”
