Old 97's will spend their summer on the road, even though the alt-country band is putting the finishing touches on a brand new studio effort which is expected to be released this fall on New West Records.
But fans won't have to wait for some "newish" old material. The band will be shilling Mimeograph at the merch table on the tour dates; it's a newly-recorded, four-song EP that includes covers of "Rocks Off" (The Rolling Stones), "For the Girl" (The Fratellis), "Driver 8" (R.E.M.) and "Five Years" (David Bowie.) This special release is only available for physical purchase at the show or through the band's website, where it will also be available digitally beginning July 6.
The band is also offering three live songs for free download for fans. The songs were recorded at their December shows in Dallas. All you have to do is visit their website and become a fan of the band on Facebook.
