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.
