OLD CANES: OCT/NOV TOUR BEGINS TOMORROW

Tomorrow, Old Canes will embark on their October/November tour, beginning with a hometown show at the Jackpot in Lawrence, KS. The tour will initially take the band eastward, where they will perform at the CMJ Music Marathon during the Saddle Creek showcase at the Knitting Factory Brooklyn on October 22nd. Feral Harmonic, the band’s sophomore album, will be released October 20th on Saddle Creek.

Limited edition CDs and LPs of Feral Harmonic are now available in the Saddle Creek online store. Hand-assembled at the Saddle Creek office by Grammy award-winning artist Zack Nipper, each CD and LP is wrapped with a black ribbon and features hand ink-stamped impressions on the cover label and inner/outer packaging, and a booklet of black and white photographs. The vinyl run is a hand-numbered edition of 1,000 and includes a code to download the album in high quality MP3 format. Check out images of the packaging below, and a slideshow of the CD artwork here and the LP artwork here. More info can also be found here.

Old Canes is the brainchild of Chris Crisci (The Appleseed Cast), who wrote and recorded Feral Harmonic in his basement studio. On tour, he is joined by Kelly Hangauer (4th of July), Taylor Hollenbeck, Lucas Oswald (Minus Story), John Momberg (Appleseed Cast/Dactyls; drums on the West coast leg of the tour), and Jeff Stoltz (Drakkar Sauna; drums on the East coast leg of the tour).

OLD CANES SIGN TO SADDLE CREEK

Saddle Creek has announced the signing of Lawrence, KS-based Old Canes and will release the band’s sophomore album, Feral Harmonic, on October 20, 2009.

Old Canes architect Chris Crisci (also known as half of Appleseed Cast) constructed Feral Harmonic largely alone in his basement studio. He played the majority of the instrumentation himself with additional help from a cast of musician friends contributing various parts, including trumpet, harmophone, cello, and hammer dulcimer, among other instruments. As recording was regularly interrupted by touring, work, other projects, and life in general, production on the album took nearly three and a half years to complete.
