The Chris Robinson Brotherhood is getting ready to head out for another lengthy run of performances that will be stopping in Chattanooga Aug. 16 at Track 29 in support of their debut studio album, Big Moon Ritual.
Review for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood:
Big Moon Ritual was just released on June 5 via Silver Arrow/Megaforce Records, the same day the band performed the album’s “Rosalee” on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”. The album will soon be followed by companion album the Magic Door in September, both of which were produced by Thom Monahan (Veticer, Devandra Banhart, Papercuts).
The complete track listing for Big Moon Ritual is:
Star Or Stone
Reflections On A Broken Mirror
Beware, Oh Take Care*
One Hundred Days Of Rain*
All songs written by except (*) written by Chris RobinsonRobinson/Casal In 2011, after more than 20 years of intense gigging and recording, Chris Robinson set off to shape something new, a fresh rock mythology, a breathing kaleidoscope thing stuffed with chooglin’ soul, bedrock boogie and shuffling wisdom birthed in intimate clubs and amongst the tall trees of the Golden State and eventually taken nationwide as the Chris Robinson Brotherhood evolved.
What began as an experiment without expectations turned into a 118-show journey for Robinson (lead vocals, guitar), Neal Casal (guitar, vocals), Adam MacDougall (keys, vocals), George Sluppick (drums) and Mark Dutton (bass, vocals) that surprised these seasoned pros as music of unshakeable solidity and exuberant reach poured out of them, a New Cosmic California sound with tendrils reaching to the original Fillmore West, Topanga Canyon and outwards towards far horizons.
