Atlanta-based Southern Rock powerhouse Blackberry Smoke will release their latest full-length album, Like an Arrow, on October 3rd. The 12-song collection was recorded at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, Georgia, and features special guest Gregg Allman on the closing track, “Free on the Wing.”
Guitarist and vocalist Charlie Starr declares, “This album is the self-produced culmination of 15 years of trying to plant our flag in the musical landscape. We couldn’t be more proud of it.”
On the road across America as you’re reading this, the group’s next appearance in Georgia is scheduled for Oct. 29th when they play Allman’s Laid Back Festival at Atlanta’s Lakewood Amphitheatre. The date is also currently scheduled to be Allman’s first return to the stage after taking a break for health issues.
