Following the release of their debut studio album ‘High Water I’ last week and a Sold-Out European acoustic run, The Magpie Salute will be returning to Europe for a full tour in November and December.
The band will perform 26 shows in ten different countries during the tour. Tickets go on sale this Friday 24th August.
Produced by Rich Robinson and recorded at Dark Horse Studios in Nashville, TN, the 12-song ‘High Water I‘ represents a musical union of swaggering rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling. A second new studio album High Water II will be released in 2019. Details to come on that at a later date.
The band brings together the reunited definitive Black Crowes guitar duo of Rich Robinson and Marc Ford, bassist Sven Pipien (also from the Crowes), lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), drummer Joe Magistro and keyboardist Matt Slocum.
You can order ‘High Water I’ here.
“It’s the recontextualization of playing with one another,” Robinson states. “When I was putting this thing together, I was thinking about how even though we may not have played for almost a decade, it just comes back immediately. The chemistry is unexplainable. Of course, I’m the same guy who played with the Black Crowes and wrote all of those songs, but this is a different context for myself, Marc, and Sven. It’s the convergence of three different worlds and eras for me. We’re all here together in this one place. Simultaneously, it’s amazing for Marc and Sven to play with Joe and Matt and John to be in the middle of it all. For me, that was really cool to witness. This is what I wanted to do.”
