Old Crow Medicine Show’s (OCMS) are excited to announce the release of their newest album, Carry Me Back, on July 20th through Shock.

Carry Me Back is the Nashville-based band’s fourth studio album and first since 2008’s Tennessee Pusher, featuring 12 brand-new tracks that sonically span the band’s career, while still pushing them forward in new directions as musicians and songwriters.

The album was recorded at the legendary Sound Emporium studios in Nashville (O Brother, Where Art Thou?; REM’s Document; Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’s Raising Sand). Carry Me Back was produced by Ted Hutt (Gaslight Anthem, Dropkick Murphys, Flogging Molly). “Ted Hutt asked us to really dig deep as artists, as songwriters, to get to the heart of the matter of these songs and, especially, not to settle for anything less than their greatness,” recalls Ketch Secor of the band. Secor is also very proud of the results - “For me, Carry Me Back is all about the songs, how they line up, intertwine, switch partners, and promenade home.”

OCMS are a part of the tour documentary Big Easy Express, which premiered at the South By Southwest 2012 Film Festival and also screened recently at the Nashville Film Festival. The movie documents 2011’s Railroad Revival Tour, which featured OCMS on tour with Mumford & Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros on a tour across the US, where the three bands travelled together on vintage train cars, playing rambunctiously fun shows at stops along the way.

“I first heard Old Crow’s music when I was 16 or 17 and that really got me into folk music/bluegrass. Old Crow were the band that made me fall in love with country music.” - Marcus Mumford
