Josh Ritter’s latest album, ‘Fever Breaks’, produced by and featuring Jason Isbell, has been critically acclaimed with many commentators calling it a highlight of his 20 year long career. We here at Americana UK agree with that, our review awarding the disc a whopping 9/10. To support the album release Ritter has just announced a European tour including several dates in the UK and Ireland.
‘Fever Breaks’ features Isbell and his 400 Unit band with Ritter explaining to Rolling Stone magazine that, “The songs are very reflective of the times in which they were written. As we started coming together and playing, the songs that felt like they were gonna work really jumped out as obvious. From there on, after we recorded in August  we had this really nice time to stop and listen and let the songs marinate a little bit. In that time, the world has just become even crazier. There’s a lot of the record that feels reflective of the moment it was in.”
