Old 97’s Unveil New Track + Add Tour Dates

January 24, 2017

Old 97’s have released a second track, “All Who Wander”, from their upcoming album Graveyard Whistling out February 24th.  Meanwhile, the current radio single “Good with God (featuring Brandi Carlile)” moves up to #17 on the AAA BDS Chart and #26 @ Mediabase!!  The band has also added new dates in NYC, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, and other major markets (full dates below).

Listen to “All Who Wander”


“All who wander are not lost…just me,” lead singer Rhett Miller wistfully sings on the new Old 97’s track “All Who Wander”, the second song to be released from their upcoming 11th studio album Graveyard Whistling

“The trick Old 97’s have held on to is to take a song that may have a darker theme and present it as something to be screamed along to in a club,” Miller explained. “I don’t want to sing sad songs in a sad way. You don’t even realize there’s a tombstone sticking out in the middle of it until the eighth or tenth listen.”


While there are new collaborators on Graveyard Whistling including Nicole Atkins and Butch Walker, there aren’t more than a handful of bands in history who can claim to have an intact, unchanged line-up as they approach twenty-five years together. There is, of course, no real  blueprint for sustaining the kind of chemistry that Miller, Bethea, Hammond, and Peeples enjoy.


“I think our longevity can be attributed primarily to our friendship and ability to overcome those moments when egos want to overtake and obliterate everything in their path,” says Miller. “We experienced the hype of the old business model, with all of its excess and idiocy, and also the deconstruction of that model and the advent of the new world, and been able to maintain a fundamental love for each other.


On vinyl, Graveyard Whistling will be released with four different cover color options – red, blue, green and silver – with four matching vinyl colors in translucent red, translucent blue, translucent green, and clear.
