The former Creedence Clearwater Revival frontman, whose “Fortunate Son” has been revived in this election cycle, hasn’t released a new album since 1997.

The message of the title track seems to be: Meet the new war, same as the old war.

But the disc has garnered critical praise as a more light-hearted affair than its politically-fired single would suggest. And by the time the election is past, those burned out by the whole process should still be able to enjoy a swamp-stompin’ good time when Fogerty hits stages beginning November 8th at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

He’s been touring with a new band since June, but hadn’t been on the road since 2000 prior to that.

“It’s good to keep a balance between what you think they expect, and to rip the heck out of those [songs] if you can, and then have enough room in there to play some new stuff, and also some of my lesser known songs from the past,” Fogerty recently told the Chicago Sun-Times.

Fogerty had about a dozen dates inked at press time, and promises more to come.

So far, the tour includes stops in Atlanta; Washington, D.C.; boston; New York City; Toronto; Detroit; Chicago and Los Angeles.
