It’s been almost ten years since the last time Tom Petty put brought together his side project Mudcrutch. Now after nearly a decade, Petty has picked up where he left off and revived the band.
As diehard Petty fans will remember, Mudcrutch is the band Petty played in from 1970 to 1975, and in 2008 the singer-songwriter brought it back to life. Well folks, The original Mudcrutch members Mike Campbell, Tom Leadon, Randall Marsh, and Benmont Tench are all back in the fold, and together the band will release their sophomore album, with the nice and simple title of Mudcrutch 2 on May 20th, which will be available via Reprise Records.
The release of the band’s latest track “Beautiful World” follows hot on the heels of Mudcrutch’s first audio teaser and lead single “Trailer”. All in all, the sound is reminiscent of early Tom Petty albums so fans will embrace this album for sure.
Mudcrutch is all set to head out on a US tour and we have the dates for you below.
