Old Crow Medicine Show Return With New Album, Tour

Written by May 17th, 2012 at 9:35 am

On July 17, beloved string band Old Crow Medicine Show will return with their fourth studio album, Carry Me Back, on ATO Records. The new, 12-song disc was produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Flogging Mollys) and recorded at Sound Emporium studios in Nashville, where classic albums like the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, REM’s Document, and Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’s Raising Sand were born. Carry Me Back is their first studio album since 2008′s The Tennessee Pusher.

“For me, Carry Me Back is all about the songs, how they line up, intertwine, switch partners, and promenade home,” says fiddler Ketch Secor, who adds,”each of these songs was an accident waiting to happen.”

O.C.M.S., who are set to headline the ROMP Festival in Owensboro, Kentucky on June 30, will kick off an expansive summer tour July 19 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

“The greatness of an old-time string band lies in its performance,” says Secor. “The way it percolates, rattling itself almost to the edge. When you’ve got a top-notch studio like Sound Emporium, and 12 strong tunes in the works, and the time and patience it takes to get it right–that’s when great performances can be captured.”

Old Crow Medicine Show recently appeared with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros in the film Big Easy Express; read our review.
