Next month sees the release of Cass McCombs forthcoming Big Wheel and Others (very few of the Domino Mart exclusive limited edition vinyl remain!) Comprised of 22 songs, Big Wheel and Others is a bundle, a bindle, a hay bale, and an oil barrel of songs. Some of the genres that are to be found on this album are: road songs, rock songs, folk songs, blues songs, country songs, rhythm and blues songs, skronk non-songs, cinema songs, cult songs, poem songs, jams, and ballads - to use however you wish. It's brimming with McCombs' gift for evocative storytelling, discerning introspection, and heartrending melody delivered through a haze of mystery and romance.

We're honored to share another new track today - Brighter! featuring the late actress/screenwriter/musician Karen Black. The pair collaborated together on 2009's Catacombs' "Dreams Come True Girl." Stream Brighter! below along with the previously released 'There Can Be Only One.' 

Cass and his band -- Dan Iead (guitar), Jon Shaw (bass), Dan Allaire (drums on the West Coast), Joe Russo (drums on the East Coast) will go on an extensive tour of North America throughout November and December. All dates are below.
