If you follow along on Instagram/Facebook/Twitter, you have already seen that the band spent the last couple of weeks in the studio recording our 12th studio album. We're working with Vance Powell, who also produced Graveyard Whistling. This time we went to Vance's own Sputnik Sound in Nashville to record.

Rhett Miller teams up with Caldecott Medalist and bestselling artist Dan Santat in a riotous collection of irreverent poems for modern families. In the tradition of Shel Silverstein, these poems bring a fresh new twist to the classic dilemmas of childhood as well as a perceptive eye to the foibles of modern family life. Full of clever wordplay and bright visual gags–and toilet humor to spare–these twenty-three rhyming poems make for an ideal read-aloud experience. Taking on the subjects of a bullying baseball coach and annoying little brothers with equally sly humor, renowned lyricist Rhett Miller’s clever verses will have the whole family cackling.
Rhett Miller has announced the creation of a new podcast called Wheels Off, in partnership with Revoice Media.

His guests will include such luminaries as legendary musician Rosanne Cash, rising star Trapper Schoepp, comedian Fred Armisen, renowned graphic designer
