Atlanta based southern rockers Blackberry Smoke have announced they will be releasing their forth studio album Holding All The Roses on 9th February 2015 through Earache Records.
Produced by Brendan O’Brien (AC/DC, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, The Black Crowes), Holding All The Roses follows hot on the heels of the bands August’s double live album/DVD set, ‘Leave A Scar; Live In North Carolina’, which placed in the album charts at #35th and February’s Top 30 album, ‘The Whippoorwill’. The album cycle saw the five piece make three visits to the UK, with each batch of dates selling out in advance, even with numerous upgraded venues.
Frontman Charlie Starr enthuses about working with Brendan O’Brien;
It was everything we’d hoped it’d be – and more. We’d wanted to make a record with Brendan since we started the band, simply because he made all our favourite records of the early to mid 90’s, starting with the first two Black Crowes records, Four Horsemen, Raging Slab, Dan Baird…then into Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen…. It was fabulous and an honour to make music with him. I just think it’s best record we’ve ever made.
