Railroad Earth and Honey Island Swamp Band at Tipitina's - October 16, 2010

Railroad Earth will hit the road this fall in support of their new self-titled album, out Oct 12 via One Haven Music. Dates kick off September 11 and last through late November, with special guests Toubab Krewe opening most shows. Highlights include two-night stands at the Fillmore in San Francisco and the Paradise in Boston, along with several festival dates.

'Railroad Earth' was produced by Angelo Montrone, in association with Michael Caplan (Allman Brothers Band, Los Lonely Boys, Keb' Mo'). The album is the band's most diverse collection to date, with nine new exquisitely crafted songs that range from rousing ballads and string-band funk to wistful waltzes and quirky time signature folk.
