[pullquote quote="There are two strong threads of material, one being a little weirder - snot-nosed obnoxious pop songs - and the other more languid, atmospheric-country music.

Wilco will kick off their ‘The Whole Love’ tour after the bands eighth studio album, featuring hit track “I Might.”After forming the new dBpm lablel, this album will offer a new beginning for the group.
Known as the “American Radiohead” band, Wilco continues to bring a stylistic diverse catalog of sounds. A critic from the New York Times claims Wilco has a “roots-rock soundthat reaches back to proven materials: the twang of country, the steady chug of 1960s rock, theundulating sheen of the Beach Boys, the honky-tonk hymns of the Band and the melodic symmetries or pop.” That is not easy to do, but Jeff Tweedy and the rest of the Wilco crew manage to sustain their rock presence all over.
Indianaoplis will be the first stop on ‘The Whole Love’ tour starting September 13th. Wilco will then travel north into Canada to play in Toronto and Montreal, and head down into Boston and New York. They will first play in July across the big pond to hit fans out there as well. For more information check out http://www.wilcoworld.net/.
