BLACK CROWES UNVEIL FIRST NEW SET IN 15 YEARS
1/12/24

As tipped here back in November, The Black Crowes will take flight again with their first new album in 15 years, Happiness Bastards, which is due 3/15 on their own Silver Arrow Records. Produced by country hitmaker Jay Joyce, the 10-track set is led by the strutting rocker "Wanting and Waiting," which is out at midnight ET (click here for a 30-second teaser).

The set is the follow-up to 2009's Before the Frost … Until the Freeze and sports a guest turn from Lainey Wilson on the song "Wilted Rose." Still led after 40 years by the brotherly tandem of Chris and Rich Robinson, the Crowes will embark on an extensive world tour in support, with dates to be announced.

"Happiness Bastards is our love letter to rock 'n' roll," declares Chris Robinson. "Rich and I are always writing and creating music. That has never stopped for us, and it is always where we find harmony together. This record represents that." Adds Rich, "Our years of experience writing and making music and touring the world are represented in this record, and we were brilliantly guided by one of the best producers in the business, Jay Joyce. I am incredibly proud of what we put together."

Ahead of the album release, the group, managed by Mark DiDia at Red Light, will visit the Pearl Concert Theatre at Palms in Las Vegas for one-off shows on 2/9-10. Will Mark finally be unveiling that long-rumored line of Crowes-branded hockey pucks? Stay tuned.
