The Black Crowes are coming back…sort of.

Three members of the seminal rock band re-united recently to form a new band dubbed The Magpie Salute.  The band, comprised of Rich Robinson, Marc Ford, and Sven Pipien, will release its self-titled debut full-length this summer.

The record is currently slated to be released Friday, June 9 via Eagle Rock Entertainment.  It was recorded live in-studio front of an intimate audience at Applehead Studios in Woodstock, New York except for the full-studio track ‘Omission.’  The album marks the last recorded by ex-Black Crowes keyboardist Eddie Harsch, who also handled keyboards on this record.

The Magpie Salute’s lead single ‘Omission’ will impact radio stations nationwide next month.  A companion video for the single is expected to be released soon after.  Also in advance of the album’s release, the band will release a special 10” vinyl 45 single of ‘Comin’ Home’ and ‘Glad and Sorry’ on Record Store Day, April 22.

A headlining tour in support of The Magpie Salute is scheduled to launch July 26 in Indianapolis, IN.  The tour includes three stops in North Carolina on August 15, 16 and 20 in Charlotte, Raleigh and Asheville respectively.

Before the band launches its headlining tour, it will also embark on an extensive European spring/summer tour that launches April 12 in London, U.K. and runs through July 13 in Berlin, Germany.  The band’s current tour schedule is noted below.

Black Crowes, Tedeschi Trucks Band Team Up For Summer Tour

The Black Crowes and Tedeschi Trucks Band are hitting the road together this Summer.  The bands will hit the road beginning July 19th.  The upcoming tour doesn’t give the members of The Black Crowes much time to relax as the band is currently on its “Lay Down With The Number 13” tour.  It’s the first tour for the band since ending its two-year long hiatus.  This current tour takes the band across the U.S.  It runs through June 2nd.  From there, the band will head overseas for the European leg of its tour.  The European leg of the tour will run from June 18th – July 6th.  It will include headlining shows, festivals, and a pair of stadium shows with “The Boss” himself, Bruce Springsteen.

The upcoming tour dates are in support of The Black Crowes most recent release, Wiser for the Time.  This release is a four-disc, eight-side gatefold vinyl release.  It contains 26 songs—15 acoustic and 11 electric—from the band’s 2010 five-night stint in New York City.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band is currently touring in support of its most recent album, Revelator (2011).  The album won a Grammy for best Blues Album at the 2012 Grammys.  That album was followed up the live album, Everybody’s Talkin’ in May 2012.  The band’s next LP is expected to be released in Summer 2013.
