Vic Chesnutt

"This fall Vic Chesnutt will embark on a six-week North American tour in support of At the Cut, the Athens, GA-based singer-songwriter's latest effort. The touring band features Fugazi's Guy Picciotto and members of Godspeed You! Black Emperor and Silver Mt. Zion, all of whom collaborated with Chesnutt on the new album which is out September 22 on Constellation Records."
A track from the new record is posted above.

Vic Chesnutt's North American tour will be coming to NYC for a show on Monday, October 26th at the Bowery Ballroom and another the next night (10/27) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Tickets for both go on AmEx presale Wednesday, July 29th at noon. General sale starts Friday, July 31st at noon. Clare and The Reasons open both gigs.

Vic Chesnutt played the same NYC venues in June as part of a summer solo tour with Jonathan Richman. And not long before that he was at Bowery Ballroom with Elf Power.

At the Cut info

Recorded by former Arcade Fire member Howard Bilerman at Montreal's Hotel2Tango studio, At the Cut focuses on themes of cowardice, courage, mortality, tenacity, defiance, mourning and memory. The opening track, "Coward," was originally written for director (and Chesnutt collaborator) Jem Cohen's Empires of Tin and premiered in a live performance by Chesnutt and his band at the 2007 Vienna Film Festival. Reflecting the broad stylistic range of contributors on the album, the songs on At the Cut span the musical spectrum from classic Vic Chesnutt solo acoustic tracks to the sweeping walls of noise and snarling, angular guitars trademarked by his many collaborators. To be made available on CD and LP, the album's artwork features original and found photography by Jem Cohen.

Vic's last record was awesome, he doesn't seem to be showing any signs of slowing down. And his live shows are freaking gripping, yet he makes them light-hearted and fun too. I can't wait for this record!
