Gov't Mulewith The Magpie Salute
Preeminent American rock band Gov’t Mule have announced their Summer Tour 2018 with special guest The Magpie Salute, kicking off August 17th in Charlotte, NC and including a stop in Huber Heights, OH at Rose Music Center on Tuesday, August 21st.
Gov’t Mule’s acclaimed 10th studio album Revolution Come… Revolution Go [Fantasy Records] is out now. Spanning rock, blues, soul, jazz and country, the album won over fans and critics alike and, upon its release, shot up the rock charts, racked up nearly 2 million streams, and nabbed the band their highest-selling debut week ever. Their most diverse offering to date, Revolution Come…Revolution Go showcases the band's evocative songwriting, incendiary playing, cleverly-crafted songs and timely lyrical commentary. While Gov't Mule's storytelling has always been inspired in part by American struggles and experiences, Revolution Come... Revolution Go finds the band's finger directly on the pulse of our very divided political climate, poignantly capturing the tension and emotions felt by Americans regardless of political affiliation with a resounding call for unity. The album also features introspective ruminations on life and love - PRESS HERE to watch the video for the gorgeous and moving tune “Dreams & Songs” which recently premiered via Relix.
Gov’t Mule – GRAMMY® Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, guitar legend Warren Haynes [vocals, guitar], Matt Abts [drums], Danny Louis [keyboards, guitar, and backing vocals], and Jorgen Carlsson [bass] – has galvanized a global fan base with their music and improvisational virtuosity, leading them to be recognized as one of the most timeless, revered and active bands in the world.
