After a summer with Dead & Company, Bob Weir will return to the road this fall with a new outfit dubbed Wolf Bros.

The trio – featuring Weir alongside longtime RatDog drummer Jay Lane and bassist/producer Don Was – will perform songs from the Grateful Dead catalog on their 19-date trek, which kicks off October 16th in Reno, Nevada.

“Wolf Bros is something that really took its roots back in the spring of 2015 when Don Was came up to TRI [Studios] and helped us piece together Dead & Company,” Weir said of the trio in a statement.

“For a while now I’ve been itchin’ to explore our songs in a trio setting. An upright bass, my acoustic or electric guitar and a drummer. We did some rehearsals this past spring and it was big fun—and that’s the whole idea. We were kickin’ around Dead songs as well as tunes from my back pages. I’m pretty sure we’re gonna have a big adventure with this…”
