Blackfoot's Southern Native Out Friday

Article Contributed by 37-Media | Published on Tuesday, August 2, 2016

Blackfoot, the Southern American rock band who were originally formed in 1970’s by current lead guitarist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rickey Medlock, are back with a new line-up and will release Southern Native on Loud & Proud Records, August 5, 2016.  Over the last two years, Medlock wrote, performed on and produced Southern Native.  Fans can watch the music video for the title track, “Southern Native” today exclusively on Ultimate Class Rock, who said of the song , “…it’s clear that Blackfoot retain the hard-edged Southern rock sound that defined earlier favorites…” Watch it HERE

Blackfoot has always been defined by their hard rock edge as evident on their most successful singles “Train, Train” and “Highway Song.”   In 2012, under Medlock’s sturdy guidance, he recruited a completely new ensemble. The Florida-based foursome, including lead guitarist/vocalist Tim Rossi, guitarist/vocalist Rick Krasowski, bassist Brian Carpenter and drummer Matt Anastasi, are carrying the torch for the next generation with their hard-driving sound.  Pure Grain Audio praised the band for their “…raw energy and enthusiasm…this assured-sounding foursome undoubtedly possess the talent required to take southern rock deeper into the 21st century.”

Blackfoot has toured extensively over the past few years re-igniting their fanbase while introducing their new music and its members to fans of other Southern rock artists such as Skynyrd.  Blackfoot will be touring for the rest of the year in support of Southern Native beginning August 18 in Tulsa, OK at The Vanguard (tour dates below).

Fans can pre-order the album now through iTunes or Amazon.
