The Allman Betts Band release the music video for their new single ‘Pale Horse Rider‘ today. The single is taken form their second full-length studio album titled ‘Bless Your Heart’ released on Friday 28 August 2020 via BMG. The video was filmed over the course of two days in Joshua Tree National Park, California.
Devon Allman told Rolling Stone Country that “’Pale Horse Rider’ was a really fun one to write. Duane had this almost vertigo-inducing descending melodic pattern that was so unique. Once I started the lyric about a man feeling so lost and isolated with the world out to get him, the story just kind of wrote itself. The Wild West seemed the perfect setting to tell the tale.”
‘Bless Your Heart‘ is their bonfire, built for the summer of 2020 and beyond; a double-album follow-up fuelled by road-forged camaraderie and telepathic musical intensity, vibrantly reflecting the individual and collective experiences of these seven, all drawing inspiration from the band’s symbolic hometown – a place Devon Allman calls “the United States of Americana.”
A conflagration of influences and invention, confidence and ambition, ‘Bless Your Heart‘ captures a vast, panoramic scope throughout a baker’s dozen of modern rock. Ragged and stomping. Heady and frayed. Soaring and scorching. Generational and genteel. West Coast scenes and Gulf Coast shores. Gateways of the Midwest and swamplands of Florida. Wyoming’s Big Sky. New York’s Big Apple. Chicago’s Broad Shoulders.
