BLACK CROWES SOAR ON COMEBACK LP "HAPPINESS BASTARDS"
3/15/24

After 15 years, The Black Crowes have migrated back to record stores today (3/15) with a new studio album, the Jay Joyce-produced and hilariously named Happiness Bastards. Out on the band's own Silver Arrow Records label, the LP includes the Crowes' first proper collab, the Lainey Wilson-featuring "Wilted Rose."

In celebration, the Robinson brothers-led, Red Light-managed band will tonight air a performance for Amazon Music's City Sessions taped last week at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, New York. The action gets underway at 9 p.m. ET on Twitch.

Happiness Bastards will surely be music to the ears of Crowes fans, as it lives up to Joyce's description of sounding "old school real, live and raw. These guys came to town like a freight train—ready to lay it down, no bullshit. They brought the OG magic of their early albums along with some young punk spirit. I was honored to have captured it."

Added Wilson, "it’s an honor to wail on this record with these legendary, pioneering rock stars. Welcome back boys! You’ve been missed."

Those pesky critics seem to agree, with Esquire praising the album's "hard-charting riffs with echoes of Memphis soul and old-school barroom boogie," and Mojo hailing it as "a thrilling return, oozing sass and swagger."

A tour in support of Happiness Bastards begins 4/2 at Nashville's Grand Ole Opry and will proceed to such locales as Los Angeles' Greek Theatre (4/12) and New York's Radio City Music Hall (4/27) before descending on Europe in May and June.
