The North Mississippi Allstars Are Heading to Europe

The North Mississippi Allstars have announced some European dates in support of their forthcoming album, World Boogie Is Coming, which is set for release on September 3. The tour will begin on October 10 in Madrid before winding through Spain, France, the Netherlands, Belgium and The United Kingdom. The European run will follow a series of American dates, including appearances at ELLNORA: The Guitar Festival, Americana Music Festival, Music Midtown Festival, Ninth Street Summerfest and Mighty Mississippi Music Festival.

World Boogie Is Coming, which the North Mississippi Allstars have produced themselves, will be complimented by a good bit of visual content. Guitarist Luther Dickinson said of the album:

This is not just a record but an ongoing film project. It is a soundtrack to Cody’s films. Cody has discovered a love of filmmaking and knows that in this day and age you need multi media. He set out to use our landscape of modern day Mississippi and roadwork experiences to share with the audience a vision, a dreamscape of our world. We wanted the World Boogie Is Coming package to have as much visual content as possible, with the record itself being sonically cinematic, a montage of medleys similar to our live shows — the recording fell together beautifully with that intent. We set ambient microphones up around the whole studio — footsteps, rain, wind, talking, bugs and birds all played their part. Archival tapes of Otha and R.L. fell right into the pocket as soon as we transferred them, laughing, joking and jamming with their kids —transcending time and space, life and death.
