The North Mississippi Allstars Get Back to Basics With "Hernando." 

"We hope to tour as much as possible this year," says Luther Dickinson, prior to a gig in Denver. His band, the North Mississippi Allstars, has been out supporting its latest release, "Hernando," since mid-January.

"There was a period of time, when we first started playing, that all the touring influenced us a lot," he says. "We were playing with different bands on the rock-and-roll scene night after night and at festivals — bands that we'd never even heard before, like Rage Against the Machine."
