Rock group Widespread Panic set to release new album

Tuesday, April 11, 2006

Widespread Panic Call Out To the Nation on 'Earth To America'*New album on Sanctuary/Widespread Records Available June 13

Widespread Panic, the wildly popular standard bearers of rootsy American rock, are readying for the release of their audacious new album Earth To America (June 13, Sanctuary/ Widespread Records). Their 9th studio CD, Earth To America captures the band at a new creative peak in collaboration with producer Terry Manning, the first time they've worked with the famed studio master whose credits stretch back to Stax days.

Beginning with the eerie, ambitious 11-minute plus epic "Second Skin," (a staple of their live shows), the album twists and turns through 10 tracks of time-honed classic rock. Other standout tracks include the boisterous barroom rocker "Goodpeople" and the toe-tapping, blues tinged "Time Zones". Extended workouts like "You Should Be Glad" give the band a chance to show off their chops, while the tender closing benediction "May Your Glass Be Filled" highlights the band's delicate touch on a down tempo ballad. Also noteworthy is the band's hard charging cover of Bob Dylan's "Solid Rock" from 1980's 'Saved'.

The album will be available in four formats- digi-pack, jewel case, double Vinyl LP, and digital download. The vinyl includes two bonus songs not available on the CD. The fans who pre-order the disc through widespreadpanic.com before June 13th will have access to 6 bundles of digital extras including home video from the recording at Compass Point studios, exclusive band interviews, unreleased concert footage, artwork, and more.

Widespread Panic will perform 4 spring concerts this year, 2 in Raleigh, NC and 2 Atlanta, GA at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. The May 9th Fox Theatre show will be simulcast through select movie theaters nationwide in association with National Cinemedia. Plans are in the works for a full summer tour to be announced soon.
