The leg of the 2012 Revival Tour hitting the 20th Century will feature Ragan, Dan Andriano, Cory Branan and Nathaniel Rateliff. Ragan’s 2011 solo album, Covering Ground, was one of the best of his post-HWM catalog. Andriano’s work with Alkaline Trio and the Emergency Room has garnered embarrassing amounts of acclaim, while Branan is perhaps best known for his cross-collaborations with Lucero (his Bloodshot Records debut, Mutt, is slated for release next month) and Rateliff’s exquisite 2011 debut for Rounder, Memory of Loss, is a potent display of his dual debt to the classic Rock and Soul of the ’60s and ’70s and the long and storied Folk tradition.
Backed by fiddler Jon Gaunt and upright bassist Joe Ginsberg, Ragan, Andriano, Branan and Rateliff combine their estimable talents to create a show that bristles with Punk energy, swells with Folk passion and kicks more ass than a kung fu film festival.
