Blackberry Smoke have made their song Waiting For The Thunder available to stream.

It’s taken from the country-rock outfit’s forthcoming album Like An Arrow, which is due out on October 14. It can be pre-ordered on their website.

Singer and guitarist Charlie Starr tells Rolling Stone: “Simply put, it’s a rock’n’roll song. It’s the statement we want to make, musically.

“Lyrically, I think maybe it touches on how crazy the world seems right now.”

Blackberry Smoke bassist Richard Turner and two roadies were hailed heroes after rescuing three people from a burning car in April.

The band have a number of North American dates scheduled over the coming months.
