Blackberry Smoke’s sixth studio album, Find A Light is set for release on 6th April via Earache and the band have posted the album’s lead track, “Flesh And Bone” online.

Self-produced by the Atlanta-based five-piece, Find A Light features 13 new songs written/co-written by frontman & guitarist Charlie Starr. In addition to Starr and band members Richard Turner (bass/vox), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar/vox), and Brandon Still (keyboards), the album also features special guests, Robert Randolph (I’ll Keep Ramblin’), Amanda Shires (Let Me Down Easy) and The Wood Brothers (Mother Mountain).

About the collection, Starr tells us, “The new album is a melting pot of Blackberry Smoke music with a wide range of sound and emotion. I think it’s our most inspired work yet.” As is their modus operandi, the band are set to spend most of the year on the road in support of Find A Light (these road dogs often play upward of 250 shows a year), with their first UK appearance of 2018 set for Ramblin’ Man Fair in July.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
