BLURT-approved band preps new album for Nonesuch.
By Blurt Staff
RI, combo the Low Anthem will
have their latest album re-released by Nonesuch on June 9. Cheekily titled Oh My God, Charlie Darwin, it was
originally self-released last September by the band, but now Nonesuch has
arranged for a spankingly fine remaster by the remastering maestro Bob Ludwig.
In addition, initial copies of the record will come in
hand-silkscreened sleeves courtesy Devil’s Rainbow.
The band hits the road this week for a short eastern tour,
then in May will head over to Europe, and
return to the States in time to play Bonnaroo. Meanwhile, fans will recall that
the Low Anthem performed on “Mountain Stage” last December, doing several songs
from Charlie Darwin, including the
title cut. You can hear the performance streamed HERE.
