Sweden’s classic rock heavyweights SPIRITUAL BEGGARS are currently wrapping up work on their next, 8th studio album release, which will be entitled 'Earth Blues' and released on April 15th, 2013 via InsideOutMusic.

SPIRITUAL BEGGARS celebrate their 20th anniversary as a band with this release and are playing shows, including a European tour in April. SPIRITUAL BEGGARS’ guitarist and songwriter Michael Amott said about the recordings of 'Earth Blues'...

”We started the recording process of 'Earth Blues' with an eight day long session at Fat Guitar Studios (Sweden) with knob twiddler Roberth Ekholm, a truly great dude who really knows how to capture a band jamming live, sadly a rare quality in recording engineers nowadays! We continued with some overdubs at various studios in Sweden, and it’s all come together super easy this time.  We’re finishing up the mixes now with Staffan Karlsson (Spiritual Beggars, Shining, etc.) at his studio in Halmstad, Sweden. Sonically, I think this might be our finest hour yet. It’s a raw, heavy and honest record.”

In order to promote this upcoming release as well as the band’s anniversary, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS have confirmed a European tour for April with support by German rockers ZODIAC as well as some European summer festivals.
