Todd Snider: New Album, Tour with Full Band

TODD SNIDER MAKES MUSICAL MESS
TO INCITE CLASS WARFARE ON NEW ALBUM

On March 6, East Nashville's subversive, fearless, rebel-rousing songwriter Todd Snider will release his new studio album Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables (Aimless Records). Last year's double-disc live album The Storyteller earned accolades from Rolling Stone and NPR and his new set finds him pushing even more of society's buttons. "I want to inspire people," Snider says. "I want to inspire them to leave home, to do things traditionally considered wrong. If you listen to my record and vandalize your school, godspeed."

Recording the album in under a week, Snider and co-producer Eric McConnell recruited other great East Nashville musicians to create a sound that didn't replicate anything they'd done together previously. "I told them I wanted to make a mess," Snider says. The result stands as something disconcerting, cracked and apart from the music of Snider's heroes, and from Snider's own celebrated past.

Todd Snider and the full band will embark on a 40+ date national tour this spring, with stops in New York, Los Angeles, Boston, and a two-night stand at San Francisco's historic Great American Music Hall. Dates below. Stay tuned for updates.
