Released on Friday 9th June via Spinefarm Records, ‘Revolution Come… Revolution Go’ boasts 12 tracks and is described by lynchpin Warren Haynes as the sound of “a new chapter opening up for the band."
The album was primarily recorded with Gordie Johnson in Austin, Texas with two further tracked produced by Don Was.
The centrepiece for the album is an autobiographical track called ‘Dreams & Songs’, on which Haynes reflects on his career from David Allan Coe’s band in 1980 through to the Dickey Betts Band, the Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule and more.
"It's about looking back at your life and family and changes," Haynes says. "And the general message is you never go back home -- not in the literal sense of the word, but things have a way of growing in their own directions, and you wake up one day and look at everything you've been through and think, 'Wow, how did I get here?'
“It's a journey and you look back on it. I'm very grateful for the opportunities that I've had, but it's been a wild ride and in some ways has gone so much quicker than I would ever expect. Thankfully, I'm still going strong and my career's as good as it's ever been. I'm thankful for that."
