BLACKFOOT, the Southern American rock band who were originally formed in 1970s by current lead guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rickey Medlocke, are back with a new line-up and will release 'Southern Native' on Loud & Proud Records, August 5, 2016.
Over the last two years, Medlocke wrote, performed on and produced 'Southern Native'. "This record is head to head old school meets new school, classic to new rock for a brand new generation!" he says. "Turn it up loud!"
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).
'Southern Native' tracklisting:
1.) Need My Ride
Blackfoot have toured extensively over the past few years re-igniting their fanbase while introducing the new Blackfoot music and its members to fans of other Southern rock artists such as Skynyrd. Blackfoot will be touring all summer in support of 'Southern Native'.
