Widespread Panic To Release First Studio Album In Five Years

Seminal band Widespread Panic has announced the September 25th release of Street Dogs, their long-awaited twelfth studio album on Vanguard Records.

Widespread Panic | 11/2/2014 | Review

Widespread Panic’s nearly thirty-year-old traveling carnival of crunched-out jam rock is a spectacle that’s anchored by a faithful following that grows with each seasonal tour. Crafted in the shrieking southern-rock of the Allman Brothers Band and the improvisational mastery of the Grateful Dead, Panic resides among the upper echelon of jam bands, and they’re built to last.

Hardworking Americans | The First Waltz | Review

It’s hard to use the term super-group without a couple of obvious stigmas surfacing.
