Twice Told Tales is an album by Jamestown, New York band 10,000 Maniacs. The album was released through Cleopatra Records on April 10th, 2015. With more than 10 million albums sold, 10,000 Maniacs present the most ambitious album of their career - a full-length album of inspired interpretations of traditional British Isle folk songs. This unique project combines old world melodies and lyrics with the much loved 10,000 Maniacs sound as heard on the standout tracks "Misty Moisty Morning," "Canadee-I-O," "She Moved through the Fair," and more.
Founding member John Lombardo returned to the fold for this project, contributing guitar to the recording session. For this album, they teamed up with Producer Armand John Petri, who had worked with the band since 1991, as well as producing their 1999 album The Earth Pressed Flat. The band funded the project by using the music site Pledge Music, which began May 13th, 2014.
This release is pressed on Limited Edition 180g Black Vinyl LP!
"Reuniting with founding member John Lombardo, 10,000 Maniacs return to their roots in other ways on 2015's Twice Told Tales...there's a warmth and comfort here that show the benefits of a band growing older together...it not only evokes warm memories, but it speaks to the band's present." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
