Cass McCombs

Cass McCombs doesn't know how many more winters he may be able to spend in Chicago. He told me that he just can't stomach the icy cold temperatures during the cruelest and most drawn out season that the Midwest always buckles under, no matter how prepared we all are for its impending beat down. We all become either become ninnies and turn hermitic come late January/early February or we get aggressively perturbed and grouchy, grumbling about it all - the weather from Siberian hell. It all seems so strange because McCombs - one of America's finest songwriting talents, who deserves many more dollars to his name - does icy and desolate so well. [Daytrotter]
Cass McCombs is opening up five dates of the Walkmen's summer tour, though none of the band's NYC shows. Both bands will instead play NYC on their own.

The Walkmen perform at the Guggenheim on Friday, August 14th with High Places, and then at a free Central Park Summerstage show two days later (August 16th) with Dinosaur Jr.

Cass McCombs plays a show at Joe's Pub on Monday, July 27th with Mike Bones. Tickets to that are on sale. Then he performs at Brooklyn's Union Hall on Saturday, August 1st with Jennifer O'Connor. Tickets are on sale.

McCombs's new album, Catacombs, comes out July 7th (in North America) on Domino Records. The video for its first single, "Dreams Come True Girl," which features Karen Black (Nashville, The Great Gatsby, more), is posted below. Album art and track list, with all tour dates, are also below...
