(Fresh and Clean) G. Love is pleased to announce the first leg of his U.S. tour in support of his new country blues and roots album, Fixin' To Die, set for release on Brushfire Records on February 22, 2011.
Recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC, and produced by Scott and Seth Avett, the album is arguably G. Love's most sincere and candid work to date.
Inspired by the shared musical heritage between G. Love and The Avett Brothers, the result is Fixin' To Die, a collection of rearranged traditionals, a classic cover, and a slew of G. Love originals, many simmering for over a decade, all sharing a common goal: to strip away all pretense and capture the original spirit and sound G. Love has cultivated over his entire career but never fully embraced until now.
G. Love will make his first ever appearance at SXSW in 2011. Performance locations will be announced at a later date.
