Old 97’s Announce Too Far To Care Deluxe Edition, Tour

Videos by American Songwriter

Old 97’s will celebrate the 15th anniversary of their breakthrough album Too Far To Care with a Deluxe reissue loaded with bonus tracks, and a national tour in which they’ll perform the album in full. The album, first released in 1997 on Elektra Records, features seminal songs like “Time Bomb,” “Barrier Reef”and “Salome.”

The reissue will feature three previously unissued bonus outtakes (“Beer Cans”, “No Doubt About It”, “Holy Cross”) and a rare promo track (“Northern Line,” off the Nothing To Attract You EP). A second disc will contain They Made A Monster: The Too Far To Care Demos with 11 previously unreleased demos from the Too Far To Care sessions. They Made A Monsterwill also be released as a stand-alone LP (w/download card) and also as a stand-alone digital version.

Too Far To Care was a magical moment for the 97’s,” says Old 97’s frontman Rhett Miller. “Starry-eyed and flush with confidence thanks to our brand-new deal with Elektra, we felt no fear, just giddy excitement. An adventurous producer and a world champion A&R guy shepherded us through the recording process. And when it was all over, we had captured our little bit of lightning in a bottle. I love Too Far To Careand can’t wait to play it in its entirety across the USA.”
