Straight No Chaser Serves You A ‘New Old Fashioned’

A Cappella group Straight No Chaser returns for a three-month road trip beginning in mid-October in support of the lads’ new album coming out this fall.  Starting with three shows in Las Vegas, the tour includes gigs in Salt Lake City, Des Moines, Albuquerque, Memphis and Dallas.

The New Old Fashioned is Straight No Chaser’s fifth full-length studio effort.  Scheduled to be released in October, the album includes the group’s  Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons / OneRepublic medley “Beggin’/Counting Stars” and their rendition of Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love.”

Coming up much sooner than the album release and tour is Straight No Chaser’s role in an annual tradition in the group’s home state of Indiana. On May 24 the boys will appear during the Indianapolis 500 pre-race activities to perform “(Back Home Again In) Indiana,” a number that’s all the more fitting when you consider that Straight No Chaser began its life in 1996 at Indiana University Bloomington.  The Indianapolis 500 Pre-Race Show will air live at 12 noon EDT May 24 on ABC.
