Arthur Buck, the new duo consisting of Joseph Arthur and ex-R.E.M. guitarist Peter Buck, will tour a dozen major U.S. cities in September, including Buck’s old home base, Athens, Georgia.
Arthur and Buck will front a five-piece band joined by Young Fresh Fellows and Minus 5 frontman (and former R.E.M. sideman) Scott McCaughey on bass, keyboardist Gregg Foreman and drummer Linda Pitmon, who’s played with Buck and McCaughey in The Baseball Project and Filthy Friends.
“Forever Waiting,” the third track to be released off Arthur Buck’s self-titled debut album, was posted on YouTube on May 15. The full record comes out on June 15th.
