The 77s Announce Sticks and Stone Re-issue and Unplugged Tour

“Lo-Fidelity Records is pleased to announce the upcoming re-release of the classic 77s album, Sticks And Stones… Out of print since shortly after it’s original release, we will be offering the album in CD and digital format, available online and on tour in March 2012. Please stay tuned for further details in the coming weeks on the expanded track list for this classic album. In support of the release, Michael Roe and David Leonhardt are excited to again tour as 77s Unplugged where they will perform songs from Sticks And Stones and the extensive 77s catalog.

Michael and David had this to say about the upcoming tour:

“It’s been nearly 22 years since the release of Sticks And Stones and it will be exciting to have the album available again and celebrate the re-release with the fans who have loved it and supported us for all these years. I am also thrilled to be able to come play these tunes for you with my ‘ol 77s pal David Leonhardt, as we have not appeared together as a duo since the “It’s For You” tour 15 years ago. Dave and I have always had a bit of ESP going whenever we perform and we’ve missed that magical musical experience (along with the ridiculous humor) ever since.” – Michael Roe

“I am really excited to be playing again with Mike. We always have a great time together and our musical influences generate some interesting moments on stage. Sometimes it gets us in trouble, but we’ll try to avoid that. Sticks And Stones being re-released brings back lots of great memories and it will be fun to revisit those songs on the tour. That album had some of the coolest songs from that era, and this tour should be a great musical experience with Sticks And Stones as the background. Can’t wait to see all of you again!” – David Leonhardt

77s Unplugged is also pleased to be scheduled to play Cornerstone 2012. Lo-Fidelity Records will be releasing an expanded version of the classic 77s live album, “Echos O’ Faith” in time for the festival. To celebrate the re-release and 20th anniversary of the original recording, some configuration of the original “Echos O’ Faith” lineup will appear at the festival. 77s Unplugged is currently scheduled to play on the Gallery Stage on Wednesday, July 4th, at 9:35PM. Please stay tuned for updates regarding the Cornerstone performance.
