National Stadium Dublin

In celebration of the new album, the band—who have been called “country-rock’s most ferocious live band” by Rolling Stone—will tour throughout 2018, including a headline show at Dublin’s iconic National Stadium on the 7th of November.
Blackberry Smoke’s highly anticipated new album, Find A Light will be released April 6 on Earache Records and is now available for pre-order. Already receiving widespread attention, the album’s lead track, “Flesh And Bone,” recently premiered at Rolling Stone (listen/share HERE). Of the song, Rolling Stone praises that it,

            “…sees Blackberry Smoke in full-on swaggeras well they should be. Starr and co.    are riding a hot streak…A gritty stomper, ‘Flesh And Bone’ crunches like an early Nineties grunge song, but tweaked with Georgia twang that’s become a Blackberry Smoke signature.”

Additionally, Guitar World declares, “‘Flesh And Bone’ is a greasy, stomping, slide-guitar-packed tune with a IV section that recalls mid-period Led Zeppelin.”

“Best Seat In The House” is the second song unveiled from the new album (listen/share HERE). Of the song, lead singer Charlie Starr comments, “That song is sort of a sarcastic complaint…we all want what we ain’t got. It’s not enough to get in, people want front row…”

Self-produced by the acclaimed 5-piece band, Find A Light is Blackberry Smoke’s sixth full-length studio album and features 13 new songs written/co-written by lead-singer and guitarist Charlie Starr. In addition to Starr and band-members Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards), the album also features special guests Robert Randolph (“I’ll Keep Ramblin’”), Amanda Shires (“Let Me Down Easy”) and The Wood Brothers (“Mother Mountain”). Of the album, Starr comments, “The new album is a melting pot of Blackberry Smoke music with a wide range of sound and emotion. I think it’s our most inspired work yet.”

The release of Find A Light culminates a series of breakthrough years for the Atlanta-based band following the release of 2016’s acclaimed album, Like An Arrow, which peaked in the UK Official Charts at Number 8.

Released to widespread praise, the Boston Globe declared, “…the needle can be dropped on Like an Arrow until it’s grooves become as well-worn as the classic albums that inspired this band of country-rock workhorses,” while American Songwriter asserted, “…Blackberry Smoke fills the bill for the next generation of gutsy, heartfelt and honest Southeast rocking with plenty of talent, tons of drive and no apologies.”

In August 2017, they made their debut on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

In addition to their work as musicians, Blackberry Smoke remains committed to charitable work and has raised nearly $200,000 benefiting children’s cancer research.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
