    Old 97's have added dates to their upcoming winter tour in support of their forthcoming new (and possibly haunted) album, The Grand Theatre Volume One, which will be available October 12, 2010 via New West Records. The run of dates includes Nashville, Philadelphia, three nights in the NYC area and now a West Coast run with shows in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Boulder.

    In addition to the live shows, Old 97's will spend the week of release in their home state of Texas, with several exciting events, including three in-store appearances with performances and CD signings and the band will also participate in two special radio listener events in Dallas and Austin. Fans can obtain tickets directly through the stations.

    While recording The Grand Theatre Volume One, the band set out to capture the energy of their famous live performances. They spent a week of pre-production recording the new songs completely live at the nearly 100-year-old (and reportedly haunted) Dallas venue Sons of Hermann Hall. The band set up on stage like they normally do during concerts, so it was instantly conducive to whether or not certain new songs would translate well in a live atmosphere. After deciding what new songs made the cut for proper studio recording, the band moved the production to Treefort Studios in Austin, TX. Basic tracks for these studio sessions were recorded mostly live, resulting in an album that is as vibrant, immediate and sweat drenched as their praised live show. Frontman Rhett Miller stated, "The Old 97's have hit a great stride, found our second wind. I feel like we found the secret to capturing the live energy people rave about after they see us play."

    Damn. That's intense. It makes me want to check out The Grand Theatre Volume One.
