Old 97s Announce New Album

Super exciting news today, as The Old 97s announce their new album, their eighth studio record, The Grand Theatre Vol. 1 - due October 12 on New West. We're just taking our first spin now... From the press release:
The band, who Rolling Stone says have “evolved...into master-class rock & roll songwriters,” recorded over two dozen brand new songs during studio sessions and will be releasing a second volume
in 2011.

The Grand Theatre Volume One was predominantly written during Rhett Miller’s 2009 solo tour abroad. The lyrics are filled with character studies while the sound – expertly rounded out by band members Murry Hammond, Ken Bethea and Philip Peeples – is Garage-Rock-meets-60s-British Invasion without abandoning the classic 97’s sound
