Heavily celebrated Grammy Award winning band Old Crow Medicine Show has rejoined Nettwerk Records for the Canadian release of their upcoming new album Remedy, due out July 1. Remedy is full of catchy melodies, quirky and often humorous lyrics, all executed with mesmerizing musicianship. Ten years after the massive success of folk anthem “Wagon Wheel,” which started as a track on a Bob Dylan work tape later finished by fiddler/band leader Ketch Secor, Remedy features a new Dylan/Old Crow penned collaboration on the track “Sweet Amarillo” one of the album’s many highlights. Remedy also features the return of producer Ted Hutt (Flogging Molly, Dropkick Murphys, Gaslight Anthem), who produced 2012’s highly praised Carry Me Back.

Long before the resurgence of folk and roots rock, Old Crow Medicine Show was performing their fiery style of amped up old-time music, cultivating a diverse fan base who thrive on the band’s energetic performances. The songs on Remedy are chock full of the same raw energy, swagger and drive that has made rabid fans of everyone from hipsters to college students to traditional music purists. “This is country music for people who think country music needs a whoopin,'’ says Secor, who adds, “Country music that knows how deep its roots run--- from the dirtiest blues to the folkiest folk, the songwriters, the crooners and the Outlaws, to the Opry stage; it's all here.” Kicking off with "Brushy Mountain Conjugal Trailer,” a new take on the classic prison tale, the band then launches into the hyper speed "8 Dogs 8 Banjos," a timeless original that could have been penned ages ago, but with more fire. Though Old Crow Medicine Show is loved for their fast and furious up-tempo numbers, they shine brightly on the ballads including the touching "Dearly Departed Friend" and Critter Fuqua’s “Firewater.”

In support of their upcoming release, the band has announced their biggest headlining tour ever with stops including Red Rocks, The Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre (Atlanta), The Philadelphia Folk Festival and London’s incredible performance space The Roundhouse. Opening acts for the tour include critically praised folk duo Shovels & Rope, Hurray For The Riff Raff, and Parker Millsap who will be opening all of the band’s UK dates. For a complete list of tour dates see below.

Old Crow Medicine Show's story is truly one of building a career from the ground up. While busking in the North Carolina town of Boone, they were discovered by folk icon Doc Watson. Since then the band has toured the world, received mass critical praise, and sold over 800,000 albums. “Wagon Wheel” received the RIAA’s platinum certification in the U.S. and gold certification in Canada, and they were recently asked to become the newest members of the Grand Ole Opry. They were also a part of the Big Easy Express tour and documentary along with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros, for which they received a Grammy for "Best Long Form Music Video."

One of many things that set Old Crow Medicine Show apart is the way they have earned the respect of both their peers and influences while also influencing the new guard of folk-rock revivalists. While trends have come and gone, Old Crow Medicine Show continues to be a strong and steady force in roots music.
