New Wilco Record Slated for June Release
In Wilco's recent newsletter to fans, the band stated they are "making major progress on the upcoming soon-to-be-titled LP. They've been hunkered down in the loft with Jim Scott and are just about ready to start mixing. We've got it on the calendar for release in June."
Rolling Stone writer Austin Scaggs previewed a few tracks and said, "Let's just say that the record is sick... Great melodies, great lyrics, great playing and great sounds. You're gonna dig it!"
Wilco's live concert film "Ashes of American Flags" had its world premiere February 20 at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival in Missoula, Montana. It was screened last night as part of the Noise Pop Festival in San Francisco and that'll be followed by a showing at the 1st annual Chicago International Movies and Music Festival on March 9. Tickets for the Chicago premiere are available here.
More information about the film is available at ashesofamericanmovie.com. The DVD release via Nonesuch Records is set for April 18. You can watch the trailer here:
