Gov’t Mule is back! The band’s first-ever blues album, Heavy Load Blues, will be released Friday, November 12 on Fantasy Records. The new record is available for pre-order now at all DSPs HERE and each pre-save will include an instant download of the first song, “Heavy Load.” CD and Vinyl packages – including a deluxe edition featuring additional studio and live tracks – will be available from the webstore HERE.
“For me, personally, it’s kind of been on my list of things to do for years. I didn’t know if it was gonna be a solo album or a Gov’t Mule record. We play some traditional blues on stage from time to time and although it’s usually never more than a few songs per show, our approach to the blues is unique and based on our collective chemistry as a band. This album gave us a mission. Although in some way it was ‘anything goes,’ we wanted to stay true to the spirit of the blues in a traditional sense. It’s not a blues/rock record – it’s a blues record. We wanted it sonically to sound different from a normal Gov’t Mule record.” – Warren Haynes
