Phish bassist Mike Gordon will play select festivals this summer from July 4-August 6, and then embark on a nationwide club tour in August and September. Club tour dates will be announced shortly.

Gordon’s solo album, “The Green Sparrow,” is set for release on August 5 on Rounder Records. Recorded at his home studio in Vermont and mixed at The Barn, his former band’s studio and art space, the 10-track disk features special guests Chuck Leavell, Phish’s Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell, Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann, Ivan Neville and horn players from Antibalas.

Since the break up of Phish in 2004, Gordon has participated in many projects, none of which have been purely solo. As an artist known for his endless creativity and touring stamina, Gordon took 2007 off from touring and dedicated his time to writing this record.
