The upcoming tour schedule is in support of their wildly popular new album, FERAL ROOTS which was released in January via Low Country Sound/Atlantic Records and gave the band their highest UK chart position to date at #12. FERAL ROOTS was produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Dave Cobb at Nashville’s famed RCA Studio A, and the equally legendary Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Muscle Shoals, AL, and has already brought the band their first #1 single in the USA at rock radio, with the song, ‘Do Your Worst.’
MOJO remarked that FERAL ROOTS featured the band’s “finest work to date,” while KERRANG! called it “a fuzzed-out, heavy-arsed, thoroughly soulful blast of glorious rock thunder.”
The primal intensity of FERAL ROOTS reflects a certain unrest at the heart of the album, sparked by vocalist Jay Buchanan’s recent move to Tennessee. “I’m working to reconcile my dirt-road DNA with our growing dependency on technology and the over-communication that comes with that,” noted Buchanan. “We’re surrounded by and are subordinate to our own creation. I looked to the undomesticated nature that lies dormant beneath our civil choreography, to what created us. “ But with its nuanced explorations of both the wild and the domestic struggles of love and truth, FERAL ROOTS ultimately argues for pushing beyond pure survival instincts and striving for something more exalted: to reclaim a long diluted genre with a galvanizing return to form.
