Phish Announces Fall Tour, Mike Gordon Teases New Album With Leo Kottke


Mike Gordon and Phish have announced a quick jaunt for the fall with seven dates focusing on the East Coast. The iconic jam band will kick it off with two nights at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island before heading to New York, Pennsylvania, and the Carolinas. They’ll wrap up with a trio of shows at the North Charleston Coliseum in Charleston, South Carolina.

In other news, Gordon shared a photo of himself with Leo Kottke with the caption “Studio daze” on his Facebook page. The duo released two albums in the early 2000’s – Clone and Sixty Six Steps – and have apparently been working on new music for several years. Gordon eluded to their reunion in an interview with JamBase last year.

“I haven’t really talked about this because it’s just a work in progress, but I’ve been taking some of his more intense compositions and spending a long time composing basslines, rather than just getting in and learning the chord progression and getting in and jamming it. It’s been years in the making. So we’re working on it, and we’re excited, but it’s slow motion.”

Until then, we can continue to enjoy Mike’s playing with Phish. Here’s a recent version of “Ghost” from Madison Square Garden:
