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 Billboard.com. “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.

American Central Dust tracklist:

“Dynamite”
“Down To The Wire”
“Roll On”
“Cocaine And Ashes”
“Dust Of Daylight”
“When The Wheels Don’t Move”
“No Turning Back”
“Pushed Too Far”
“Exiles”
“Sultana”
“Strength And Doubt”
“Jukebox of Steel”
