Share This:

Mudcrutch 2016We’re huge TP fans. Any day we can say “There’s a new Tom Petty album out” is a good day. No, make that a great day. Best Classic Bands has been reporting on the second album from his original band, Mudcrutch, since it was first announced on March 25. And now 2 has been released on Warner Bros.’ Reprise label.

2 is produced by Petty, Mike Campbell and Ryan Ulyate, the same team that oversaw Mudcrutch’s 2008 self-titled debut, which featured “Shady Grove” and “Lover of the Bayou” among its tracks. The band dates to the early 1970s; its members are Petty, Campbell, Benmont Tench, Tom Leadon and Randall Marsh.

The album’s first release was “Trailer.” If it sounds familiar to you, it’s because it was originally recorded during the sessions for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 1985 Southern Accents album and included on the excellent “Playback” box set.

“Beautiful World” was the next song released, written and sung by Marsh.

The band’s brief tour will be at small venues, beginning May 23 in Northridge, CA and concluding June 30 in San Diego, CA. The performance halls include New York’s Webster Hall, Los Angeles’ Fonda Theater and Washington DC’s 9:30 Club, as well as several festivals. Best Classic Bands will be reviewing one of their NYC concerts.

Tickets for all shows appear to be sold-out. We suggest you search via our re-sale partners at Ticket Network. (See complete itinerary below.)

And here’s “Hungry No More,” a mesmeric six-minute number that is rich with Beatlesque harmonies, chord changes and riffs, all with a Southern accent.
