Twice Told Tales is the ninth studio album by Jamestown, New York band 10,000 Maniacs. It is an album that consists of many traditional folk songs from the British Isles. For this album, they team up with producer Armand John Petri, who had worked with the band since 1991, as well as producing their 1999 album The Earth Pressed Flat. Coming back into the fold is founding member John Lombardo, who had supplied the band with a cassette full of songs he loved, as well as putting together the arrangements. The band funded the project by using the online Direct-to-fan music platform PledgeMusic, which began May 13, 2014. Early promotion of the project included a concert held at the Reg Lenna Center For The Arts in Jamestown, New York, which was also streamed online for fans from far parts of the world to tune in. The pledge closed on March 17, 2015 and was released through Cleopatra Records on April 10, 2015.
