Listen to MUDCRUTCH:
Mudcrutch has announced their second album and first-ever national tour, beginning May 26th, 2016. Their new album, entitled 2, will be released by Reprise Records on May 20th.
Mudcrutch was initially formed in 1970 in Gainesville, Florida and is the precursor to the legendary Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers. Tom Petty (bass/vocals), Tom Leadon (guitar/vocals), Benmont Tench (keyboards/vocals), Mike Campbell (guitar/vocals), and Randall Marsh (drums/vocals) make up the band’s current line up. In 1974, Mudcrutch was signed to Shelter Records and moved to Los Angeles where they released one single, “Depot Street,” to very little fanfare. The band broke up in 1975 and could have settled for being a legend, but instead Mudcrutch rose from the ashes in 2008 to remind us that the golden age of rock and roll bands still had a few treasures to unearth. Their debut, made some thirty-three years later, was an unexpected hit. Rolling Stone declared it “a country-rock instant classic” in a rave four-star review.
All members of Mudcrutch contribute songs on their new album 2. The album includes seven originals written by Tom Petty, with band members Mike Campbell, Tom Leadon, Randall Marsh and Benmont Tench composing one each.
Every tour ticket purchased online for 2016 Mudcrutch headline shows includes a CD copy of the new album 2.
