Revisiting 2016

Whaddup Wreckers? Can you believe we're at the precipice of present procurement, engrossed in the maelstrom of capitalism, and just plain old swamped in holiday prep? How could the year have careened by so quickly? While we wait patiently for the new album, Graveyard Whistling to drop some time in February, we thought it might be fun to look back at some of the high points from this year. January was all about the Mexican sun, sand and tacos of Todos Santos. The guys spent a weekend hanging out and performing with fellow rock legends Jeff Tweedy, Gary Louris and

Jefe here, and just wanted to let everyone know that my charity project is close to wrapping up. Desperate Times - Songs of the Old 97's is officially out in the wild. If you're not familiar with the project, it's an album of Old 97's covers by a bunch of great artists with all proceeds going to charity: water. It's been a very fun project, and I greatly appreciate the Old 97's giving me the green light to make it happen. If you supported the original Pledgemusic campaign, thanks! (And I'll get the limited edition vinyl out ASAP!) But if

IT’S A LOOOOOONG WAY BACK TO EL PASO

2016-03-16T10:27:04-05:00

Can you feel it? The unmistakable charge in the air that can mean only one thing: another Old 97's work of rock is being conceived a stone's throw from the border. That's right fellow Wreckers, our favorite foursome is hard at work siring lucky number eleven in the creative confines of Sonic Ranch Recording Studios in Tornillo, Texas. The very same studios in which 20 years prior, four talented young men, fresh off a label bidding war, full of swagger and promise, settled in to beget their seminal musical effort, Too Far To Care. We all know 2014's phenomenal Most
