Cass McCombs Confirms Tour Dates, Joe Russo to Drum for East Coast Shows

Cass McCombs will hit the road in support of Big Wheels and Others, the most encompassing work of his career. The 22 song album is set for release on October 15 via Domino Records.

McCombs touring band will include Dan Iead on guitar and Jon Shaw on bass, with Joe Russo drumming for the East Coast dates and Dan Allaire drumming for the West Coast dates. Russo has become a staple of the jambands scene through various projects, including Furthur and the Benevento/Russo Duo, while Shaw plays with Scott Metzger’s group Wolf!. Iead is best known for his work with The Broken West and Allaire plays drums with the Brian Jonestown Massacre.

McCombs and his band will get started at Mississippi Studios in Portland, OR on November 7 before making their way across the United States and Canada. They will wrap up their North American run at Ottobar in Baltimore on December 14, though they will play a single London gig on January 13.

Far classier sideman work than a cover band. Loved the steel on the second track. Not so crazy about mikes playing on the first one.

This guy is a fucking genius. Amazing that Russo is playing with him. I’m in!
