In addition to the tour dates, the band is gearing up for several in store appearances in support of Blame It On Gravity. They will be in Houston at Cactus Music on May 15th followed by Waterloo Records in Austin on May 16th.
Starting now through Friday, April 9, fans can go to old97s.newwestrecords.com and sign up to receive an exclusive digital download of a performance of the new song "My Two Feet." This exclusive footage was filmed live at the band's end of recording session party in Dallas earlier this year. Those who signed up will receive an email after April 9 with a link to download the video.
Blame It On Gravity superbly combines the various elements of rock, punk, classic country and pop displayed on previous releases and the collection is easily the band’s most well-rounded stack of songs recorded for a single offering to date. The album represents the quality of song-craft fans have come to expect from the 97’s past releases and is also reminiscent of the intensity, drive and bona fide joy found on cult favorite and major label debut Too Far To Care.
Since the 97’s last studio release, 2004’s Drag It Up, the band has released a double live album, Alive and Wired, a live DVD, and appeared prominently in the romantic comedy The Breakup after being written into the script by longtime fan and supporter Vince Vaughn.
