Speaking previously about the new record, drummer John Fred said: “Family Tree showcases all of our collective musical influences and how we have taken those to create something that is truly our own unique Southern American rock‘n’roll sound.”

The album features a guest appearance from frontman Chris Robertson’s five-year-old son, who provides backing vocals on You Got The Blues, while Gov’t Mule’s Warren Haynes plays and sings on Dancing In The Rain.

Family Tree is available for pre-order, while the band are about to embark on a tour in support of the album which includes a set at the UK's Download festival.
