The last time that Trey Anastasio Band took the stage was at the 2011 installment of Bear Creek Music Festival in Live Oak, FL. When the band’s set wrapped, Trey announced that it would be quite awhile before they would be back out on the road. Though he probably was referring to the Classic TAB lineup (Jennifer Hartswick, Russ Lawton,Tony Markellis, Ray Paczkowski, Russell Remington & Natalie Cressman) that has been his most recent band of choice. it did leave some room for the audience to wonder.
When news began to surface of a new album, it became all but certain that there would in fact be a fall tour. Today, following an accidental leak by the folks at Ticketmaster, it is official: Trey Anastasio Band (in some form) will hit the road for a month’s worth of (primarily Northeastern) dates.
Here is the announcement from Trey.com:
“Traveler, Trey Anastasio’s forthcoming solo album, will be released on October 16 on Rubber Jungle Records / ATO Records. Trey co-produced the album with Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Jonsi) last fall in Katis’ Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT. Album pre-order details will be announced shortly. The first single on the album, “Scabbard,” will be released August 21.
Trey Anastasio Band will return to the road this fall to support Traveler. Tickets for all shows will be available through a real time presale beginning Thursday, August 16th at 10:00 am ET and ending Wednesday, August 22nd, at 5:00 pm ET at http://treytickets.rlc.net.
