Widespread Panic As CD and Tour Announced

(Sanctuary) For their latest album Earth To America (Sanctuary/Widespread Records, June 13), 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. Says Todd Nance (drums), �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.� Adds John Bell (vocals, guitar), �He brings out some really heavy and rich tones.� Sometimes, those results took the assistance of a few surprise gifts.

Widespread Panic will follow the release of Earth To America with a 35-date U.S. tour beginning June 21 in Kansas City.
