Rising blues rockers Larkin Poe – made up of sisters Rebecca and Megan Lovell –have released a new single, Strike Gold. It's the fourth track to be taken from the pair's upcoming sixth studio album Blood Harmony, and follows in the footsteps of previous singles Georgia Off My Mind, Bad Spell, and the title track. 

Strike Gold is a soulful blues with some sassy lap steel flourishes and a chorus designed for live singalongs, which is well-timed as Larkin Poe have also announced their biggest US tour to date. It begins at the The Orange Peel in Asheville, NC on January 20, and winds up at the beginning of April ahead of a trio of shows in Australia. Full dates below.

"After years of being out on the road, this song feels emotionally anthemic," says Rebecca. "Shoutout to all the good souls out there who keep showing up for their dreams, even when the goin’ gets tough."

Blood Harmony is released on November 11 via Tricky Woo Records.
