Widespread Panic is back with Earth to America and summer tour

Widespread Panic is back with Earth To America (Sanctuary/Widespread Records), the band’s first studio album since 2003. The album hits stores on June 13th and will be followed up with a 35-date US tour.

For their latest album, Earth To America, Widespread Panic wanted to try something new – a new producer, a new studio, even a new country in which to work. It’s what brought them to the Bahamas to work with producer Terry Manning, an inspired pairing that yielded some big rewards.

“It’s like he was waiting for us to touch upon what he was thinking. It was effortless; there wasn’t a moment when we didn’t know where to go or what to do,” said Todd Nance (drums) in a press release. John Bell (vocals, guitar) added, “He brings out some really heavy and rich tones.”

Earth To America is available for pre-order at Amazon. Visit the music database for more information and a complete track listing.
