It’s not exactly a match you’d expect, which is what makes the idea that the iconic Pacific Northwest-based record label Sub Pop sign New Orleans’ own Preservation Hall Jazz Band so exciting. Though known for fostering the careers of grunge and indie rock bands over the last three decades, Sub Pop has expanded their sonic portfolio in recent years to include other genres like hip-hop for instance with Shabazz Palaces. This latest addition looks to continue that trend with one of the most storied and respected jazz outfits in the country.

In a press release, Sub Pop promised that the Preservation Hall Jazz Band will release new music sometime in the new year, and in the meantime they are making their 2017 release So It Is and their earlier, 2013 album That’s It! available digitally today.

In the meantime, while you wait on new music from the group, you can catch them out on tour across the country this Summer. Check out the full slate of shows below and find ticket information via the official Preservation Hall Jazz Band site here.
