Chris Robinson Brotherhood has announced keyboardists for its forthcoming 'Servants of the Sun' tour. The legendary Pete Sears will join The CRB for all of the band's May shows, including dates in the Southeast, as well as, Dark Star Jubilee and Summer Camp festivals. Joel Robinow comes aboard for late June performances and a July tour across Europe. Sears' history stretches across six decades, having been a member of bands with Rod Stewart, Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship among others. The multi-instrumentalist also plays bass in Robinson's cosmic-country revival band, Green Leaf Rustlers. Joel Robinow is the founding member of acclaimed indie prog ensemble Once & Future Band who Robinson has frequently championed among his favorite modern artists. The CRB's 'Servants Of The Sun' tour marks the band's final scheduled shows of 2019.
'Servants of the Sun' is The CRB's sixth full-length recording since forming in 2011. It finds them setting aside the studio explorations of more recent work, instead coming full circle to deliver their most direct, bare bones, rock n’ roll offering since debut companion albums 'Big Moon Ritual' and 'The Magic Door.'
Bottling the CRB's pure essence into 10 new songs, 'Servants of the Sun' encapsulates a musical vision tirelessly constructed over eight years through extraordinary musicianship, epic touring and a roving, seemingly bottomless wizard’s chest of sonic delights.
'Servants Of The Sun' is available to pre-order on 2-LP Vinyl, CD & Digital formats.
