Son Volt will be on tour this year but the nearest stop to the Land of Cheese is their appearance the Taste of Randolph Street in Chicago on 16 June. There is however, more SV news to be had.
The band has completed work on their next album which is, as of yet, untitled. In stores now, however, is the band’s latest DVD called 6 String Belief:

The DVD features 31 songs which span Jay’s solo, Son Volt and Uncle Tupelo careers, including: Bandages & Scars, Straightface, Picking Up the Signal, Windfall, Chickamauga and Feel Free as well as interview footage with Jay.
Lastly, Jay Farrar’s collaboration with Anders Parker, Gob Iron, is due this fall. It’s a collection of traditional tunes, some of which have been re-arranged and given some new lyrics.
