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 fall 2014 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 (December 2 and 3), the Orpheum Theatre in Boston (December 5 and 6) and New York City’s Beacon Theatre (December 11 and 12).
Tickets for all shows 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.
Beginning today, fans can get a free download of “Bounce,” a song from Paper Wheels, HERE. 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).
The upcoming tour is Trey Anastasio Band’s second outing of 2014. Minneapolis City Pages pronounced TAB’s sold-out Twin Cities show as “triumphant.” “Flanked by a deep horn section and tight rhythm, Anastasio dazzled …unleashing new tunes like the funky ‘Bounce,'” said Reverb in a review of the band’s two-night stand in Denver.
Anastasio just wrapped up a West Coast orchestral outing with a concert at the Hollywood Bowl, where he performed with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. The program for the three-city run featured the world premiere of Petrichor, his brand new composition for guitar and orchestra. His jaunt with TAB will fall between Phish’s fall tour of the West Coast and its four-night stand at Miami’s American Airlines Arena, which kicks off on New Year’s Eve.
