Widespread Panic is an American rock band from Athens, Georgia. The current lineup includes guitarist/singer John Bell, bassist Dave Schools, drummer Duane Trucks, percussionist Domingo "Sunny" Ortiz, keyboardist John "JoJo" Hermann, and guitarist Jimmy Herring. The band's original guitarist and primary songwriter, Michael Houser, died of pancreatic cancer in 2002, and the original drummer, Todd Nance, left in 2016.
The band was formed in Athens, Georgia, in 1986, and is influenced by the Southern rock, blues-rock, progressive rock, funk and hard rock genres. They have been compared to other jam bands such as the Grateful Dead and Phish. Widely renowned for their live performances, as of 2018, they hold the record for number of sold-out performances at Red Rocks Amphitheatre (Morrison, Colorado) at 60 and State Farm Arena (Atlanta) at 20.
The eleventh studio album by Widespread Panic signaled the return of John Keane as producer and was recorded in the band's hometown of Athens, Georgia, in contrast to the previous two albums produced by Terry Manning at Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas. It is the fourth album released after the death of Michael Houser and the first for ATO Records.
Songs on the album range from road-tested classics like Jerry Joseph's classic "North", "Clinic Cynic" and "Visiting Day", to new originals like "Saint Ex", "Shut Up And Drive" and "Cotton Was King". Also included is "This Cruel Thing", the latest in a long line of Vic Chesnutt covers released by the band, and "True To My Nature", a collaboration with Daniel Hutchens of Bloodkin.
