Singer Chris Robinson commented:
“The year 1972 was a watershed moment, some of the greatest rock and roll songs ever made came out of that year. To get our band back together in the studio, it had to be a celebration of rock and roll. This record is about love and devotion to something that makes us feel good. We hope that it makes fans around the world feel the same.”
The band will be streaming a full performance of the EP from the Whisky A Go Go in Los Angeles, CA on May 4 at 7:00 p.m. PST. Fans can watch that set on Amazon Music’s official Twitch channel.
