The Chris Robinson Brotherhood have announced the release of their fourth studio album, Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel, out July 29, 2016 via Robinson's own Silver Arrow Records. The band relocated to northern California for the sessions, recording on the side of a mountain overlooking the foggy Pacific Ocean and channeling the natural majesty of their surroundings into the album's eight sprawling tracks.
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood have announced the departure of original bassist, Mark “Muddy” Dutton. His final show with the band will be March 19 at the Rendezvous Festival in Jackson Hole, WY.
"It has been a great adventure. I wish my brothers a long and beautiful journey, as I leave with pride and fond memories," says Dutton. "I’m looking forward to the rise of The CRB as they continue to bring the old world to the new."
The Chris Robinson Brotherhood has just announced an additional 18 shows on their Fall 2015 tour, including three nights at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn and two shows at Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh. The CRB's now annual end of the year run through San Francisco occurs this year at The Fillmore for two nights.
Chris Robinson Brotherhood (CRB) is much more than individual players built around a popular musician. While there’s no doubt that Chris’ past with The Black Crowes has helped fuel their ongoing surge, it’s unfair to the band and their music to label it as such.
When you see The Chris Robinson Brotherhood in your town, which they’ll no doubt be visiting sooner than later, the former Black Crowes vocalist will likely be the most recognizable. That’s not what this band is about, however, as this is no patchwork group assembled to orbit a central star.
Chris Robinson Brotherhood announce today that Tony Leone has joined the band on drums. His first performance with The CRB will be this coming weekend at the Sunshine Music & Blues Festival in Florida followed by a 14-date tour across the Midwest and East Coast in February. Leone's arrival follows the departure of the band's original drummer George Sluppick.
