Former 70 Volt Parade lead singer Trey Anastasio currently has no gigs on the docket after cancelling his headlining spot at the 10,000 Lakes Festival in July. Whatever the reason, though, that 10KLF appearance would have been a perfect kick-off to Big Red’s Get Out on the Road and Support a New Album Tour.
Thanks to our friends Hadley and The Otrane for giving us the heads up that a new Trey album is allegedly due for release in late July. Both Allmusic and Barnes and Noble now have listings for The Horseshoe Curve on their websites.
Back in December, before Trey’s much-discussed arrest, Big Red spoke to Bob at the Humblog about this new no-lyrics, more-horns release:
I already have another record that will come out after this one, an instrumental record, no singing. It’s hard to explain, but it’s a 10-piece band with horns where the horns are layered. It’s out there. You know if this was on a major label, I’d have to explain it. Now I don’t have to explain it to anybody except Patrick Jordan my one employee.
A search of Google turned up this potential track listing for The Horseshoe Curve:
1. Sidewalks Of San Francisco
3. Burlap Sack and Pumps
4. The Horseshoe Curve
5. Noodle Rave
6. Tube Top Tony
7. Porters Pyramids (f/k/a Undermind Intro)
8. MLC Jam
As Trey Loyalists, we can only hope this will be Big Red’s return to glory.
