Tom Petty reunites old band ... Mudcrutch

Before there was ever such a thing as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers there was a little band called Mudcrutch. Mudcrutch which is TP's old band, broke up in the mid 70's not that long after the band moved from Florida out to California. Well fast forward 30 some odd years & Petty is reuniting the group which had consisted of himself, along with current Heartbreakers Mike Cambell and Benmont Tench, and the two lesser known members Tom Leadon and Randall Marsh. TP decided to bring the old group together again, basically stating that there was unfinished business at hand. Mudcrutch recorded a new album in two short weeks back in August and it will be released on April 29th on Reprise Records. You can currently take a listen to Mudcrutch's new single "Scare Easy" which is available on iTunes. The band will also be heading out on the road for a few performances in California.
