Out 07/03/2008 on Silver Arrow (Essential
Featuring the single "Goodbye
Daughters of the Revolution"
Their first studio album since 2001’s highly successful
band’s first album of all-new studio material in seven years,
due out March 3rd — will be independently
released on the band’s own newly formed Silver Arrow Records
and distributed through Essential Music & Marketing/Pinnacle
Records. It’s their first studio release since the acclaimed
LIONS album in 2001 (on V2).
Produced and mixed by Paul Stacey at Allaire Studios, Woodstock,
NY, the album features 11 songs, all of which were written by CHRIS
and RICH ROBINSON, except “God’s
Got It” by the Reverend Charlie Jackson.
The album builds compellingly on the band’s trademark adventurous
brew of rock, blues, country, soul and gospel.
WARPAINT marks the recording debut of two new band
members—guitarist Luther Dickinson and keyboardist
Adam MacDougall--who join CHRIS
and RICH and drummer Steve Gorman
and bassist Sven Pipien. Dickinson, of North Mississippi
Allstars, officially steps in to replace producer/guitarist Paul
Stacey, whose position with the band was always intended
to be temporary. THE BLACK CROWES are deeply appreciative
that Stacey committed his genuine talent and time to the band and
their performances for most of 2007.
CHRIS says the album’s title signifies
“the revolution that could take place in all our souls.”
Meanwhile, for the first time in their 18-year career, THE
BLACK CROWES will perform an album of theirs in its entirety.
On a special run of “One Night Only”
shows beginning on March 4, fans will experience WARPAINT
performed in its entirety, after which the band will play songs
from their catalog and selected surprises.
THE BLACK CROWES will begin their world tour March
24 by headlining the Byron Bay Festival in Australia. They’ll
continue their down under trek—their first since 1991—through
April 5 before playing special engagements in Tokyo, Amsterdam and
London, and concluding with shows in Hamburg and Cologne, Germany
THE BLACK CROWES have sold over 20 million albums
and are known as one of rock’s best live acts. They have been
called “The Most Rock n’ Roll Rock ‘n’
Roll Band In the World” and a “thoroughbred
American rock ‘n’ freakin’ roll band”;
their panoramic live shows feature alternating set lists and signature
incendiary musical explorations. Catch up with the band at www.blackcrowes.com
