Son Volt Reunite

Roots-rock outfit Son Volt has reunited and is about to begin work on a new studio album. Group members Jay Farrar, Dave and Jim Boquist and Mike Heidorn recently ended a five-year hiatus to record a track for the Alejandro Escovedo tribute album, “Por Vida.” The group is planning to return to the road next year. “It felt like we hit the ground running,” Farrar says. “Give years seemed like five days at that point. It proved that more recording and performing as Son Volt is something that should happen.” Son Volt’s last studio album was 1998’s “Wide Swing Tremolo,” Farrar’s most recent solo release came in June with the live collection “Stone, Steel & Bright Lights,” issued on his own Transmit Sound label.
