Produced by Richard Swift, Evermotion lands in stores Jan. 13. While talking with Pollstar in late 2014, drummer/percussionist Brian Rosenworcel said the rapid recording sessions for the record resulted in a new experience for the band.

“We seem to be on a cycle with the World Cup and midterm elections as far as album releases go,” Rosenworcel told Pollstar.  “We say we’re going to make an album and it will be a year or two between records and then it ends up being four, pretty much like clockwork.  But we had to wait until we had material that we were totally inspired by and we got the right guy to produce it.  We hammered out an album very unconventionally for us.  We made an album in three weeks whereas the last two took a year each. “

You’ll have plenty of chances to experience the new music.  Guster’s winter tour includes dates in California, Texas, Nevada, Utah and Louisiana as well as a run through Europe.  The band’s spring plans includes stops in Wisconsin, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Maine.
