Calexico, 'Feast of Wire' Deluxe Edition

March 17, 2023

Calexico first released their beloved ‚Feast of Wire‘ album 20 years ago and today, to celebrate the anniversary, the band have announced a special deluxe reissue of the record due May 26th via City Slang. ‚Feast of Wire‘ will be available on CD/LP/DSPs, and for the first time will include the studio recording of Calexico’s iconic version of Love’s „Alone Again Or“, released during the initial Feast campaign but never on vinyl. Additionally, the deluxe reissue will include a bonus live album 'More Cowboys in Sweden' featuring ten songs from 'Feast of Wire' recorded live at China Theatre in Stockholm in 2003. Today they are sharing the live version of "Black Heart" - listen HERE

Reflecting back on the making of ‚Feast of Wire‘, Joey says, „I’m reminded of how much time and space we had in the studio to try out all sorts of ideas. Most of the recordings started like they often do with John on drums and myself on guitar. And as we brought in the other band members it was like a river was flooding through our subconsciousness and we couldn’t get the ideas to analog tape fast enough.“

The band is set to tour Europe this year, and today are announcing an additional string of dates this fall. In honor of the anniversary, the shows will feature ‚Feast of Wire‘ played in its entirety, plus many fan favorites to close out each evening. The fall tour dates (listed at bottom) will begin to go on sale this Friday 17 March at 10am GMT / 11am CET at
