On Monday, Wilco reminded us via their official Facebook page that they’re hard at work on the follow-up to 2009’s Wilco (The Album). The Chicago-based band confirmed that their eighth LP will be out in 2011 and that a massive tour will subsequently ensue. 


Here’s the post: “Okay just a reminder: Wilco are making a record. It will be out later this year and will be followed by many, many concert dates. To quote Derek Smalls, they shall tour ‘the World and Elsewhere’ beginning in late 2011”.
