Not enough Jason Loewenstein, Lou Barlow and Bob D’Amico in your life?
Well, you’re in luck. You can have them all. ALL OF THEM. PLAYING SEPARATELY….AND THEN TOGETHER. AT ONE SHOW.
JASON, BOB AND LOU, are coming to the eastern side of North America with a triple whammy tour of awesome.
You’ll get the following combination: Jason and Bob will perform as the heavy duty Circle of Buzzards, then there will be Mr. Lou Barlow solo, THEN, as if this wasn’t enough, you’ll get 30+ songs of Sebadoh goodness including JASON, BOB AND LOU.
Says Sebadeth’s Jason Loewenstein of the August tour: “I cannot wait to prove that Sebadoh collectively is the hardest-working band in 21st-century show business”.
You lucky bastards, eastern North America. The West Coast currently hates on you, but whatever, go and enjoy and buy lots of tickets and t-shirts and rock out and swoon and take videos (’specially of any new songs) so the rest of us can live vicariously through you.

AND IN NEW SEBADOH ALBUM NEWS, Jason and Bob fly out again to Silverlake, CA on May 23 to join up with Lou, who’s been spending the last few weeks fastidiously working on and refining his songs and lyrics from the first batch of recording in March. They’ll reconvene to continue work on all of the songs recorded in the first go-round, and maybe throw in a few new ones.
With a Dinosaur Jr album out in the autumn, we might not get to hear a full new Sebadoh album until early 2013, but just you wait. The other scoop is that the band is planning to put out an EP ahead of the tour, with songs that won’t be on the long-player. We’ll let you know more as it takes shape and all the who/what/wheres.
Hold on to your hair. \m/
