Wilco got a brand new bag

The Big Windy's pre-eminent dad-rockers Wilco report that New York multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone and L.A. guit-oddball Nels Cline have joined the band's touring lineup.

For Sansone, one assumes, the gig is thanks for caddying for John Stirratt in the Autumn Defense. And Cline? Well, let's just say the Wilco-Sonic Youth ties are growing ever tighter.

Wilco's upcoming disc, A Ghost Is Born, is due June 8 from Nonesuch Records.

Update: We nuked the previous comments on this post because they were bugging us. Cool?
