Southern rock and soul music veteran Randall Bramblett will release his latest studio album, Devil Music, on September 18th via New West Records. Bramblett is accompanied on the 11-song affair by a few fellow Georgia pals, including Chuck Leavell and Derek Trucks, as well as former Dire Straits leader Mark Knopfler.
Inspired lyrically by the Howlin’ Wolf biography Moanin’ at Midnight, Bramblett says that “songs like ‘Dead in the Water,’ ‘Whiskey Headed Woman’ and ‘Bottom of the Ocean’ all sprang from the tug-of-war between blues and religion, salvation and damnation… I’m pullin’ from a deep well on this album. It’s my experience of black and white culture in the south, and how it feels to grow up here with all the religion and pain and conflict and joy – and then there’s all that dancing…”
Bramblett will support the album with a string of Southeastern tour dates in September and October, including Sept. 17th at Hendershot’s in Athens, Sept. 18th at the Cox Capitol Theatre in Macon, Sept. 19th at the Walker County Fair in Chickamauga, Oct. 10th at the Foundry in Athens and Oct. 17th at the Wire & Wood Songwriting Festival in Alpharetta.
