KFIX Rock News: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Announce New Album, Tour
Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers will return July 29 with their first new studio album in four years.
It’s called Hypnotic Eye, and if you purchase a ticket to the band’s upcoming tour, you’ll receive a copy of the new disc as part of the purchase.
Hypnotic Eye will be available in a variety of different formats, including as a one- or two-LP vinyl set.
Starting June 3, you can pre-order the album on vinyl, CD or Blu-ray via TomPetty.com and Amazon. If you pre-order the digital version on iTunes and Amazon, you’ll also receive an instant download of an album track.
Now, about that tour: it kicks off August 3 in San Diego, California, with Steve Winwood as the special guest. The schedule includes a first for the veteran act: on Labor Day weekend, they’ll play their first-ever gig at Boston’s Fenway Park.
Petty and the band have already announced headline performances at the Outside Lands and Lockn’ Festival.
Tickets go on sale beginning Saturday, May 31; check TomPetty.com for more information. If you’re a member of the band’s fan club, Highway Companions, you can get access to ticket presales.
In addition to receiving a copy of Hypnotic Eye with your purchase, you’ll also get an exclusive live album, featuring 11 tracks recorded during the band’s theater residencies last year, as well as songs from their 2013 Bonnaroo Festival appearance.
