‘Bless Your Heart’, the second album from The Allman Betts Band, will be released 28 August, via BMG, with the bands second single ‘Pale Horse Rider’, available to watch below.
A follow up to 2019’s ‘Down to the River’ (which was the first time the band had played together), ‘Bless Your Heart’ marks a years worth of experience of of the band, all drawing inspiration from the band’s symbolic hometown – a place Devon Allman calls “the United States of Americana.”
This new album was recorded over a week Muscle Shoals Sound Studio on 2-inch tape. In addition to the time in Muscle Shoals, Bless Your Heart saw additional tracking in Memphis and St. Louis.
Discussing the album, Duane Betts told MetalTalk: “I think we definitely challenged ourselves, pushed ourselves artistically and widened the spectrum on all levels. We wanted something that was a little more sweeping. A deeper experience.”
Devon Allman told us: “I hope what people hear on Bless Your Heart is a band that’s having a love affair with being a band.”
