Son Volt “Dust” Themselves Off, Record New Album

Wilco aren’t the only Uncle Tupelo-spawned band who plan to spend this summer touring behind a new album — Son Volt have announced that they will release their latest record, American Central Dust, on Rounder Records on July 7. Their sixth full-length over-all, it’s their first for the folk-centric Cambridge, Massachusetts label.

“Rounder has shown a long term commitment to music forms, like folk and blues, that I have a lot of respect for,” Son Volt frontman Jay Farrar tells “Going with Rounder has been a kind of a full circle continuum — the first Rounder person I met with was instrumental in booking Uncle Tupelo gigs years ago.”
The current Son Volt lineup includes Dave Bryson on drums; Andrew Duplantis on bass and backing vocals; Chris Masterson on lead guitar; and Mark Spencer on keyboards and steel guitar. The band will launch a co-headlining tour with Cowboy Junkies on July 8 in Denver, Colorado.
