In what has got to be one of the year’s most random cross-generational but still incredible pairings, Cass McCombs and Meat Puppets are joining forces for a co-headlining tour that includes a December 3 date at The Independent, and the two acts are also releasing a split 7-inch on October 28 via Domino Record Co.
The limited edition 7-inch will feature two tracks from both McCombs and Meat Puppets. The former’s contribution includes two new songs, “Night Of The World” and “Evangeline”, while the latter recorded two new covers, “(Hey Baby), Que Paso” (originally by Texas Tornados) and “Cathy’s Clown” (by The Everly Brothers).
Included with the release are two album covers, both of which you can see above. At top is McCombs’ cover, done by his frequent collaborator Albert Herter, followed by Meat Puppets’ cover created by the band’s own Cris Kirkwood. Only 500 copies of the split will be pressed.
Get a sneak preview below – McCombs’ “Night Of The World” and Meat Puppets’ cover of “(Hey Baby), Que Paso” are streaming via Domino’s Soundcloud – and then get full details on the collaborators’ December gig at The Independent.
