Nashville-based Larkin Poe have released their latest single, Keep Diggin'. It's the latest track to come from the duo's fifth album Self Made Man, which is due for release via Tricki-Woo on June 12.

“Some songs feel like they want to be written," say the band's Megan and Rebecca Lovell. "They almost seem to spin together of their own accord like a tornado and move with their own momentum. Keep Diggin' was one of those songs.

“The taste for gossip comes standard issue for most folks and especially for those of us born and raised in the south - as our aunt Stella May used to say: 'if you don’t have anything nice to say, come sit next to me'. Keep Diggin' is a playful warning to those with loose lips: don’t always believe everything you hear."

Larkin Poe have also launched an acoustic cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's Ballad Of Curtis Loew, filmed for a the band's Tip O' The Hat YouTube series.

"To build a fire of creativity, you need fuel," say the band. "As artists, we aspire to keep learning the songs that move and inspire us. Art begets art. While we’re at it, we want you to share in the experience." 

Last week Larkin Poe released a video for Holy Ghost Fire, another track from Self Made Man.

During the lockdown period, Larkin Poe are keeping fans entertained with their Home Sweet Home Live Stream Series, with a share of proceeds from ticket sales going to United Way, a community-building charity project in Nashville. Tickets are on sale now

"We’ve had to postpone concerts, but we don’t want the music to stop," say the band. "This live stream series is our way of keeping the music going, from our home sweet home to yours."

The band have also announced details of their rescheduled European tour, which was due to take place next month. It's now due to kick off in Dublin on February 3 2021, and climax in Cologne on March 14. Full dates below.
