Old 97’s Will Tour in December

Old 97’s has confirmed a run of dates in support of its new release The Grand Theatre Volume One. The new album, which will be available Oct 12, 2010 via New West Records, was once again produced by Salim Nourallah (he also worked on the band’s previous release, Blame It On Gravity) and engineered by Jim Vollentine (Spoon). The Grand Theatre Volume Two will be released in 2012.

According to the band, “While recording The Grand Theatre Volume One, the band set out to capture the energy of their famous live performances. They spent a week of pre-production recording the new songs completely live at the nearly 100-year-old (and reportedly haunted) Dallas venue Sons of Hermann Hall. The band set up on stage like they like they normally do during concerts, so it was instantly conducive to whether or not certain new songs would translate well in a live atmosphere. After deciding what new songs made the cut for proper studio recording, the band moved the production to Treefort Studios in Austin, TX. Basic tracks for these studio sessions were recorded mostly live, resulting in an album that is as vibrant, immediate and sweat drenched as their praised live show.”
