Today we are very excited to announce the details of our new record Edge of the Sun, which will be released on April 14. After writing in Mexico City, we returned to Tucson to record at Wavelab Studios where Joey, John, Calexico’s own Sergio Mendoza and Craig Schumacher produced the album. This is the most collaborative work in the band’s history, with guest musicians ranging from Sam Beam (Iron & Wine) and Ben Bridwell (Band of Horses) to Gaby Moreno and members of the Greek instrumental group Takim.Still no word on the next time you'll get to see them play in Tucson, but their website promises US tour dates will be announced soon. Until then, you can listen to the new song “Cumbia de Donde,” featuring Carla Morrison on SoundCloud.
