Phish Announces Summer Tour, New Album

Phish fans across the country can collect their veggie burrito makings, put Ticketmaster back on their speed dial, and solidify their summer plans, as the Vermont jam band has released dates for its much-anticipated summer tour.

The tour news comes as the band's eighth studio album, "Farmhouse," has been set for release by Elektra on May 16. The LP will include twelve new songs, many of which will be familiar from previous tours. To celebrate the new offering, the band has also planned two shows at New York's famed Radio City Music Hall on May 21 and 22.

Following the Radio City gigs, the band will spend a brief time in Japan (June 9-15) before heading back out on the road in the U.S. Of particular interest to fans is a three-night run at Indianapolis' Deer Creek Music Center, where Phish usually plays only two shows.

Another month-long tour has been set for September and October; specific dates for that road trip have yet to be announced. According to a

brief item in "Rolling Stone," Phish soon plans to take a year-long haitus, which may begin following the fall shows.
