8-Years Later, Slam-Grass Pioneers Return
Cover ArtColorado’s pioneering slam- grass band, Leftover Salmon, took an eight-year recording hiatus after the death of long-time bandmate Mark Vann. May 22 marks the end of that hiatus with ‘Aquatic Hitchhiker’ , Leftover Salmon’s first album since 2004, its first with all original compositions and its first with 29-year- old banjo prodigy Andy Thorn.

Critics agree 'Aquatic Hitchhiker' is as sharply crafted as any album in the band's catalog. iTunes reviewer Barry Alfonso said that the album is "brimming with regional Americana flavors and deft instrumental embellishments...crosses genre boundaries without restraint."

2012 career benchmarks for Leftover Salmon also include the new behind-the-scenes documentary Salmonlandia, the band's first, massive public block party in downtown Denver (Video Link) and a residency on the Discovery Channel's After The Catch, which premieres Tuesday, June 19 at 10pm ET/PT.

After The Catch is the post-show special that airs immediately after the EMMY-award winning reality series The Deadliest Catch. This season was filmed in Leftover Salmon's home state of Colorado. During each episode, the band performs several songs while the cast takes a look back at the highs and lows of the season's catch. Additional show details here!

Leftover Salmon will continue to tour through the fall. Confirmed dates included stops in markets the band hasn't visited in almost decade, as well as a trip to Mexico in December! Check out their full list of dates on their JamBase Shows Page!
