Beloved jam group The String Cheese Incident have a busy summer ahead, with a tour that kicks off at Electric Forest in June and running through the middle of August. In the downtime between their recent spring tour and summer, the band has been hard at work on new material in the studio.Today, keyboardist Kyle Hollingsworth gave a quote to Relix that certainly seems to indicate where the band is on their new album. Hollingsworth said, “After a winter of recording and touring indoors it will refreshing to share the sunlight with all of our fans. Looking forward to playing new tunes and rocking some new venues this summer.”Of course, a number of questions remain to be answered about the new album, like its title, release date, tracklisting, etc. We do know that they were working with Talking Heads’ Jerry Harrison, who produced their 2014 album Song In My Head. Hopefully Cheese won’t pull a Radiohead and delete their entire Internet presence before revealing any information!You can catch them on the road all summer with this tour schedule, and be sure to check out their extra jammy “Sweet Spot” from Red Rocks 2015, which recently premiered on Live for Live Music!
