NORTH HOLLYWOOD SHOOTOUT FOR AUGUST 26 RELEASE
According to frontman and harmonica slinger John Popper, “We’re still trying to cultivate what we’re individually good at into something that’s bigger than the sum of its parts. When we’re all playing and it’s working, it becomes this separate entity, and that’s still the thing that we’re chasing.”
North Hollywood Shootout — produced by Grammy Award winner David Bianco, whose diverse resume includes work with the likes of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Ozzy Osbourne, Mick Jagger and Teenage Fanclub — draws its curious name from the fact that the band recorded the album in the NoHo district of Los Angeles. Street date is August 26, 2008.
