G. Love and Special Sauce Reunite for Album, Extensive Tour

G. Love & Special Sauce will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut album with a new LP and an extensive tour. The new album, Sugar, reunites the band’s original members—G. Love, James “Jimi Jazz” Prescott (upright bass) and Jeffrey “The Houseman” Clemens—for the first time in eight years. The band also invited a number of special guests to help them with the new record, including Merry Clayton (best known for her duet with Mick Jagger on the Rolling Stone’s “Gimme Shelter”), Los Lobos guitarist David Hidalgo, Marc Broussard, Eric Krasno, Shamarr Allen, Kristy Lee and others.

G. Love & Special Sauce will also embark on a 45-date U.S. tour, which will see the band perform their self-titled debut LP in its entirety during the first set of each show. The outing will begin on February 5 with a show at the 20th Century Theatre in Cincinnati before the group makes their way across the country. Along the way, the band will make two-night stands in Philadelphia and Boulder, CO.

Sugar is set for release on April 22 via Brushfire Records. The band’s music video for the album’s first single—“Nothing Quite Like Home”—will debut this Thursday on RollingStone.com.

Wow… really cool to see Jimi Jazz back! Timo has done a great job filling the void but what’s the deal with him for this tour… I understand it all but it’s gotta be awkward… Still psyched 8^)
