Brotherhood confirm second studio album

Blues supergroup Royal Southern Brotherhood say their second studio album, Heartsoulblood, is "the record they really wanted to make."

The 12-track follow-up to 2012’s self-titled debut will be released on June 16 via Ruf Records, and ties in with a UK tour.

Guitarist Devon Allman says: “When we went into the studio for the first record we were a bunch of musicians making a record. On Heartsoulblood we’re a band.”

Ruf say: “Respectful of the music’s past, but twisting it into new shapes as they stride boldly into the future, this is one band adding to the story of rock’n’roll – and Heartsoulblood is the latest chapter.”

Cyril Neville, Allman, Mike Zito, Yonrico Scott and Charloe Wooton released a live LP, Songs From The Road, last year.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
