Gov’t Mule Adds A Few

Gov’t Mule extends its travels into early November by adding shows in Connecticut, Canada and New York. Coming up this week is the release of the band’s new archival LP.

Containing newly mixed and mastered demos, The Tel-Star Sessions arrives Aug. 5 via Evil Teen Records, and includes recordings of the band’s original lineup featuring Warren Haynes, Allen Woody and Matt Abts. Check out some of Gov’t Mule’s first demos via Ultimate Classic Rock.
