Tom Petty's Early Band Mudcrutch Releasing New Album

( Before Tom Petty, guitarist Mike Campbell and keyboardist Benmont Tench formed Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, the three musicians played in a little band called Mudcrutch. They'd released two singles, but no albums, before splitting up with their principals reforming in the Heartbreakers, who have had a considerably longer and more prolific career.

But in 2008, the band reunited--the other members include Tom Leadon on guitars and Randall Marsh on drums; Petty plays bass in this band--and released their self-titled debut album, 38 years after forming.

Now, Mike Campbell tells Rolling Stone that they're set to work on a followup. Apparently, the band was going to start work on the new album in January, but sessions were delayed due to medical issues facing Leadon (whose brother, Bernie Leadon, is an original member of the Eagles, and has been touring with them in recent years).

Campbell doesn't rule out tour dates, but said that after the Mudcrutch project, Petty and the Heartbreakers will get to work on the followup to last year's Hypnotic Eye. Read more here. is an official news provider for
