Every ticket comes with a download of Josh Ritter’s new album “Sermon on the Rocks” – available October 16, 2015.

The album was recorded in New Orleans, and it’s Josh’s most freewheeling and rollicking record to date. Here’s how Josh himself describes it:

“I wanted to make something grand. I wanted it to swing hard. I wanted my monster to run. I wanted to sing songs that I had written in stretches of frenzy. I wanted to fall in love with every note. I wanted to hold each one and let it slip away like ribbon through the hands. I wanted to make something important to me and to no one else. I wanted it like I’ve never wanted anything in my life. I wanted it because life is short and I wouldn’t want to leave it without giving it all of my love. I wanted to play in a beautiful studio all day and walk home at night through the ghosty wedding cake houses of the Garden District dark. I wanted to play messianic oracular honky-tonk. Mama says that I was born hungry, but I woke up one morning not long ago and found that I was ravenous.”
