Greg MacPherson Announces 'Fireball' LP, Maps Out Canadian Tour Dates
A press release notes that this time around, MacPherson "explores the dangerous, heartbreaking, and romantic stories of people you can relate to." The apparently stripped-down set was recorded with Cam Loeppky, who co-runs Disintegration with MacPherson, and features straight-to-the-point tracks like roots-rock opener "1995," which you can stream down below.
MacPherson has scheduled two Canadian tour legs to support the album, with the first running from Ontario out towards the Maritimes this October and the next hitting Western Canada in November. You'll find all the tour details, as well as Fireball's tracklisting, down below.
