Recorded earlier this year, the yet to be titled CD was produced and mastered by Terry Manning (Led Zeppelin, Lenny Kravitz, ZZ Top, and Al Green) at his Compass Point recording studio in the Bahamas, Nassau. This will be the first release with the band's new guitarist, the legendary Jimmy Herring, who began playing with the band in Fall 2006. Herring has played with such luminaries as The Allman Brothers Band, The Dead, Phil Lesh and Friends and the Aquarium Rescue Unit.
Currently in the midst of their fall tour, Panic's infamous Halloween show will take place in Asheville, NC for the first time. Halloween is inevitably one of most anticipated shows of the year as the band is known for their outrageous stage productions and costumes. This year is no exception with the show selling out 8,000 capacity Civic Centre in just minutes. Past Halloween shows have included themes such as Mars Attacks, where a space ship crash landed onto the stage, and a Mardi Gras themed Bourbon Street.
Panic kicked off this year's summer tour playing their 6th headlining slot at Bonnaroo, a festival that has grown to draw over 90,000 fans. In addition, Sony recently released a Choice Cuts CD featuring a hand picked selection of classic tunes from Panic's formative years on Capricorn records. Widespread Panic is also honored to contribute the John Lennon song "Crippled Inside" for the Instant Karma: The Campaign to Save Darfur CD which is out now on Warner Bros. Records in conjunction with Amnesty International.
