Blackfoot Announce First Album In 22 Years 'Southern Native', Stream Song


(Classic Rock) Blackfoot have announced they'll release their first studio album since 1994's After The Reign later this year. Southern Native will be released on August 5 and the band has also released the title track from the album.

Southern Native sees Lynyrd Skynyrd mainman Rickey Medlocke team up with guitarist and vocalist Tim Rossi, guitarist Rick Krasowski, bassist Brian Carpenter and drummer Matt Anastasi.

Medlocke released the first Blackfoot album, No Reservations, in 1975 and says he and his new-look lineup strike a perfect balance of styles.

He reports: "This record is head-to-head old school meets new school - classic to new rock for a brand new generation. Turn it up loud!"

Rossi agrees with Medlocke and adds: "Rickey bridged the generations by having his grandfather Shorty Medlocke play on those early Blackfoot records, 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." Stream the title track here.
