Starting Friday, May 13, Chris Robinson Brotherhood will be embarking on their 2016 summer tour, in support of their newest album, Anyway You Love, We Know How You Feel. Set to officially release July 29th, this album will only add fuel to the band’s fire this summer.

Prior to recording their new album, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood experienced a few changes. The band decided to leave their hometown of Los Angeles and relocated to the mountains of northern California. Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this new location inspired the band creativity and record new material. Along with a new home, the band also added a new drummer, Tony Leone (Ollabelle, Levon Helm) to their roster for the album. Having not only recorded the album by themselves, this was also the first time the band produced the project completely on their own.

Front-man Chris Robinson had stated that he wanted to leave as much creative space throughout the project as possible. Instead coming into the studio with a collection of finished songs, as he had in the past, he presented the group with sketches and let the band follow it’s imagination to bring the music to life. “All it takes is one good, small idea, and then if everyone’s focused and in the moment, a few hours later, you can have something that you realize you’ll be playing for as long as you’re making music,” Robinson continues. “I think when everyone’s aware that that’s the sort of magic that we’re looking for. More than any other session that I’ve ever been a part of, that’s how all of these songs were done.”

This album combines a mixture of musical flavor, featuring songs the run the gamut from psychedelic rock to Parliament-style funk to country-soul, and everything in between while still incorporating that improvisational style we all love. While the album is not available just yet, the band has graced us with their brand new single, Narcissus Soaking Wet. If the rest of the album is anything like this song, we are surely in for treat.

The Chris Robinson Brotherhood will be performing at a number of various venues and music festivals this summer. With tour stops all over the coutnry, there is no excuse for you to be a fool and miss these guys play.
