Magnolia Electric Co. Tour U.S. In Preparation for New Album

Jason Molina and his Magnolia Electric Co. have been a little quiet
since the release of their magnificent box set Sojourner, last year.
But never fear Magnolia fans, when Mr. Molina goes quiet it usually
means he’s gearing up for something big, and the first wisps of the
next Magnolia Electric Co. project will be landing soon in a town
near you. Jason Molina, now living in the UK, has spent much of the
recent months touring solo in his new home, and writing, writing,
writing. Now starting on October 26 he will be reuniting with his
fellow Electricians: Jason Groth, Pete Schreiner, Mikey Kapinus, and
Mark Rice for a thirteen date U.S. tour. The band will be fleshing
out new songs on the road, as well as Magnolia classics. It’s even
been rumored that the band has been practising some old Songs: Ohia
tunes for the tour as well. The tour will end with a performance at
Chicago’s Abbey Pub, and a subsequent studio session with Steve
Albini in the Windy City for a new Magnolia Electric Co. album to be
released in mid-2009!
