Mike Watt Takes 'Middle Stand' On Tour

Published: 2004-07-27
Founding member of the Minutemen Mike Watt is now out on his own and after a long delay his third solo album "The Secondman's Middle Stand" will be released on August 24. Watt will follow the album release with a two month 50 city North American tour. On the tour Watt plans on performing the material from the new album in its entirety and follow it with 20 minutes of other tunes.

Watt – who loves to read – said that he is inspired by what he reads. In 2000 Watt had plenty of time to read while recuperating from a near-fatal illness. That very same illness is what spawned the material on Watt's new album. Even though his illness almost made Watt's 40's his last stand, the singer feels that he is in the middle of his life and thus named the album Middle Stand.
