LIKE AN ARROW OUT OCTOBER 14, NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER
ALBUM FEATURES SONG WITH GREGG ALLMAN
EXTENSIVE SUMMER/FALL TOUR CONFIRMED
“COUNTRY-ROCK’S MOST FEROCIOUS LIVE BAND”
Already receiving acclaim, Rolling Stone recently premiered the album’s lead track, “Waiting For The Thunder,” praising, “Country-Rock’s most ferocious live band…Blackberry Smoke’s often spontaneous concerts evoke the spirit of the Allman Brothers Band.” Both “Waiting for the Thunder” and “Believe You Me” are available as instant downloads with each digital pre-order.
Recorded just outside of the band’s native Atlanta at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, GA, the 12-track album was self-produced and features special guest Gregg Allman on the album’s closing track, “Free On The Wing.”
Of the album, band-member Charlie Starr comments, “This album is the self-produced culmination of 15 years of trying to plant our flag in the musical landscape. We couldn’t be more proud of it.”
Since their debut in 2001, the 5-piece band—consisting of Starr (lead vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards)—has released four full-length studio albums, including their most recent, 2015’s Holding All the Roses, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and #8 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart.
