Widespread Panic Promise Structure On New Album

Could it be that Widespread Panic has reigned in its trademark jams in favor of more structured pursuits?

That's what the band's camp is promising on the upcoming seventh Panic album, "Til The Medicine Takes," which arrives later this month. As we reported earlier this year, the band hooked up with producer John Keane at his studio in Athens, Georgia for the effort. The band also got help from gospel singer Dottie Peoples, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Big Ass Truck's Colin Butler on select tracks.

The result, according to spokespeople for the band, is a more song-oriented album that is also touted as the band's most ambitious release to date.

Fans can find out for themselves when "Til The Medicine Takes" hits stores on July 27.
