Cass McCombs and Meat Puppets
Club Cafe

press release

Vibrant, enduring, black sheep Cass McCombs is touring this coming fall,
setting off on a mind-bending cross-country road trip with country-punk
icons, the Meat Puppets. The co-conspirators will land in over 20 cities
together from October ’til December 2014. McCombs’ most recent release,
2013’s Big Wheel and Others, gave us a portrait of an artist at his most
devastatingly powerful. Brimming with pain and passion, truth and beauty,
desperation and humor, the 22-song collection is McCombs laid bare, and an
immediate, undeniable reminder that he is one of this country’s finest
storytellers. Big Wheel is McCombs’s seventh album, produced by McCombs
and mixed with Chet ‘J.R.’ White (Girls). It’s a marauding marvel of great
beauty, insight, humor and mystery that truly sees McCombs at the peak of
his mercurial powers – his restless muse making stops at all the
strangest, most singular roadsides of rock and roll, blues, jazz, country
and more on its nomadic quest for human truth and understanding. In equal
parts bucolically gorgeous and thrillingly roughshod, mischievously obtuse
and devastatingly direct, painfully personal and cosmically universal, Big
Wheel is the perfect distillation of over a decade’s worth of creation and
chaos in the life of a true pillar of the American underground.
