ATO Records will release Mike Gordon‘s new solo album, Overstep, on February 25, 2014.
Mike Gordon shared songwriting duties with guitarist and longtime collaborator Scott Murawski and handed over the producing reins for the first time in his solo career, enlisting Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Uncle Tupelo, Pixies).
He also invited a few new players into the studio, including legendary drummer Matt Chamberlain (Jon Brion, Fiona Apple). Fans can stream “Ether,” the album’s opening track, at his Official Website (link below). Pre-order details will be announced shortly.
Gordon will celebrate the release of Overstep with a North American headline tour that will kick off at the Westcott Theatre in Syracuse, NY on February 28, 2014. The run will include shows at New York City’s Webster Hall (March 1), the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles (March 17), the historic Fillmore in San Francisco (March 18) and the Rio Theatre in Vancouver, BC (March 22).
The bassist/vocalist will be joined on the road by his longtime band – Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Tom Cleary (keyboards) and Todd Isler (drums). The new repertoire will be augmented by hints of secret synesthetic mad scientist gadgetry on and around the stage.
A limited number of tickets are available NOW via a real-time presage. Tickets will go on sale to the public beginning Friday, December 13, 2013 at 10:00 AM ET.
Overstep is Gordon’s fourth solo album, following 2003′s Inside In, 2008′s The Green Sparrow and 2010′s Moss.
Mike Gordon is a founding member of Phish, which will wrap up 2013 with a sold-out, four-night stand at New York City’s Madison Square Garden. He has also performed with numerous other artists and released two albums with Leo Kottke.
