As we’ve reported, Keller Williams, Larry Keel and Jenny Keel are set to release their follow up to 2005’s Grass. That disc featured three Williams originals along with seven covers. The trio entered the studio again this past December and recorded an album that focuses exclusively on cover material. Thief offers bluegrass interpretations of music from The Butthole Surfers, Ryan Adams, Amy Winehouse, The Raconteurs, Marcy Playground, The Presidents of the United States and Kris Kristofferson. The disc will be released on May 25, with Keller & The Keels now confirmed to support Thief through a number of festival gigs, with additional gigs possible as well.
