Tom Petty Reveals Mudcrutch 2 Details

Tom Petty’s short-lived early 70’s band Mudcrutch was resurrected in 2008 to release their first and do a brief tour. In May, they will released their second set and will promote it on a longer tour of the U.S.

Mudcrutch was started in 1970 by a young Tom Petty and Tom Leadon who had been playing together in the group the Epics. They released one single, Up in Mississippi Tonight on the Pepper label in 1971 and, after some reshuffling of personnel that saw Leadon leave and Benmont Tench join, a second single, Depot Street, on Shelter.

After the second single failed to make waves, the band broke up and Petty, Tench and Mudcrutch guitarist Mike Campbell went on to form The Heartbreakers but, in 2007, the band reformed with Petty, Campbell, Tench, Leadon and Randall Marsh. Their official first album, Mudcrutch, was released the next year and debuted at number 8 on the Billboard 200.

On May 20, Mudcrutch will release their second album, appropriately titled 2, on Reprise records with production by Petty, Campbell and Ryan Ulyate.

The track list:
Dreams of Flying
Beautiful Blue
Beautiful World
I Forgive It All
The Other Side of the Mountain
Welcome to Hell
Save Your Water
Victim of Circumstance
Hungry No More
