Old 97’s To Release The Grand Theatre Volume One Oct. 12
From Old 97’s website: Old 97’s make their triumphant return on October 12 with The Grand Theatre Volume One, their eighth studio album, from New West Records. The band recorded over two dozen brand new songs during the studio sessions and will be releasing a second volume in 2011. The 12 song album was once again produced by Salim Nourallah (who produced the band’s previous release, Blame It On Gravity) and engineered by Jim Vollentine (Spoon). Legendary for their blistering live performances, the Old 97’s 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.
