You can listen to the new single Now on the Panic Audio Player and on October 15th, the first day of New Years Mail order, you can download the single for free to take with you.
The band’s intention is to offer the track free for download on all music sites permitting, with no strings attached. The song will be available to download free of charge starting October 15th www.widespreadpanic.com. The single will offer a sneak preview of Panic’s 10th studio album slated for full release in Spring 2008 on Widespread Records.
Recorded earlier this year, the yet to be titled CD was produced and mastered by Terry Manning (Led Zeppelin, Lenny Kravitz, ZZ Top, and Al Green) at his Compass Point recording studio in the Bahamas, Nassau. This will be the first release with the band’s new guitarist, the legendary Jimmy Herring, who began playing with the band in Fall 06.
Herring has played with such luminaries as The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead, Phil Lesh and Friends and the Aquarium Rescue Unit.
Currently in the midst of their fall tour, Panic’s infamous Halloween show will take place in Asheville, NC for the first time. Halloween is inevitably one of most anticipated shows of the year as the band is known for their outrageous stage productions and costumes. This year is no exception with the show selling out 8,000 capacity Civic Centre in just minutes. Past Halloween shows have included themes such as Mars Attacks, where a space ship crash landed onto the stage, and a Mardi Gras themed Bourbon Street.
The annual end of year Tunes for Tots benefit show and New Year’s Eve dates will also be announced shortly.
