FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 1, 201
Blackfoot via Loud & Proud Records is set to release Southern Native on August 5th, 2016.
Blackfoot, the Southern rock band formed in 1970’s by current lead guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rickey Medlocke is back with a new line-up. Their Southern Native on Loud & Proud Records is being released on August 5, 2016. Over the last two years, Medlocke wrote, performed on and produced Southern Native.
Carrying the torch for the next generation of Blackfoot and handpicked by Medlocke himself, the Jacksonville, Florida-based foursome, lead guitarist/vocalist Tim Rossi, guitarist/vocalist Rick Krasowski, bassist Brian Carpenter and drummer Matt Anastasi are carrying the torch for the next generation with their hard-driving southern rock sound.
“This record is head to head old school meets new school, classic to new rock for a brand new generation!” says Medlocke, “Turn it up loud!”
“Rickey bridged the generations by having his grandfather Shorty Medlocke play on those early Blackfoot records,” said lead guitarist/vocalist Tim Rossi “so having Rickey play slide and other guitar with us on this record bridges the modern gap. It’s a full-circle kind of thing.”
That forward-moving proof can be found deep within the music of Southern Native, from the proud heritage callbacks of the title track to the tasty slide-driven travelogue of “Take Me Home” to the harmonic ramrod-riffage twist on Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s powerful “Ohio” (which includes quite a shrewd lyrical shout-out at the end).
Having toured extensively over the past few years to re-ignite their fan base, Blackfoot has introduced themselves and their music to even more southern rock fans. Blackfoot has been touring all summer in support of Southern Native. Summer tour dates left are below.
