The String Cheese Incident has hit the road for its Summer tour. The Boulder, CO based band wraps up a three night stint tonight at the Electric Forest (Double JJ Ranch) before heading off to The Backyard at Austin Texas for another three-night stand there. The remainder of the band’s Summer tour sees it travelling the country and performing in Kentucky, Colorado, Oregon, Virginia and Florida. Along with the extensive tour, the band has also announced that it will release a new album in 2014. The album will be the band’s first in nine years. It will be produced by Jerry Harrison (Talking Heads).
