Neil Young & Crazy Horse Eye Another 2012 Album

N eil Young and his reunited band, Crazy Horse, will embark on a North American arena tour this fall to promote "Americana," their first album in nine years.

The legendary band, who famously cluster together on stage and are prone to lengthy (and loud) jams, listed a series of dates throughout October and November on Young's website, starting Oct. 3 in Windsor, Ontario and hitting major markets including Los Angeles and his native Toronto, plus festival stops at Austin City Limits and New Orleans' Voodoo Fest.

In August, they're playing previously announced shows at Red Rocks and Outside Lands, in San Francisco.

New Crazy Horse


"Americana" is the first Crazy Horse album since the 2003 rock opera "Greendale" and first with longtime guitarist Frank "Poncho" Sampedro since the release of 1996's "Broken Arrow." The new album, a collection of new versions of American folk songs including "Jesus' Chariot" (video, at right) and "Gallows Pole," was released June 5.
