Although they became one of the most enduring bands in the alternative country-rock catalog, Old 97's drew inspiration from a broader range of sources, including the twangy stomp of cowpunk and the melodies of power pop. The four Texans have just released an explosive new album that captures the sound their fans treasure while excitingly veering their songwriting and production into new areas. The result is the aurally thrilling, The Grand Theatre Volume One. Written primarily by frontman Rhett Miller while on tour in the UK, Miller offers up his wry character studies and charming twists on phrases. The 97's sound is expertly rounded out by band members: Murry Hammond, Ken Bethea and Philip Peeples. Together as a band they've delivered an album that will rock America from coast to coast.
