CASS MCCOMBS RELEASES “BIG WHEEL AND OTHERS” – OUT NEXT WEEK

461

The singular and enigmatic Cass McCombs marks his decade-long career with the release of Big Wheel and Others, out next week on Domino Records. Comprised of 22 songs, Big Wheel and Others is “a bundle, a bindle, a hay bale, and an oil barrel of songs”. Some of the genres that are to be found on this album are: road songs, rock songs, folk songs, blues songs, country songs, rhythm and blues songs, skronk non-songs, cinema songs, cult songs, poem songs, jams, and ballads – to use however you wish. “It’s brimming with McCombs’ gift for evocative storytelling, discerning introspection, and heartrending melody delivered through a haze of mystery and romance.”

Cass (guitar, vocals) and his band – Dan Iead (guitar), Jon Shaw (bass), Dan Allaire (drums on the West Coast), Joe Russo (drums on the East Coast) — will tour North America in support of this new album throughout November and December. All dates, including a newly announced 2014 overseas tour, are included below.
