While there’s still no word on when Phish’s next album will see light, one of the band’s members has a new solo project set for 2014. Bassist Mike Gordon will release his fourth solo LP, Overstep, on February 25th via ATO Records. It serves as the follow-up to his 2010 effort, Moss.
Overstep sees Gordon working with an outside producer for the first time as a solo artist, teaming with Paul Q. Kolderie (Radiohead, Pixies). He also recruited drummer Matt Chamberlain (Fiona Apple, Pearl Jam), among other in-studio collaborators.
Currently, you can stream the opening cut, “Ether”, at Gordon’s website.
In support of the album’s release, Gordon has announced a North American tour stretching from late February to early April. Joining him on the road will be his usual band of Scott Murawski (guitar), Craig Myers (percussion), Tom Cleary (keyboards) and Todd Isler (drums). See the full schedule below.
