Gregg Allman Says New Album Is On The Way

While recognizing that drummer Butch Trucks had declared the band wouldn’t be recording any new material, Allman refuted that claim, stating, “We will be getting in the studio with or without Butchie.  There, I said it!”

Before any new Allman Brothers album is recorded, however, Greg Allman has to get through his solo tour in support of his newest album, Low Country Blues, which begins Tuesday.  The singer has spent time getting in shape for the tour by “sleeping and resting, eating real good food and exercising a little bit.”  It’s important, since this is Allman’s first tour since undergoing a liver transplant in June of 2010.  Due to the transplant, Allman has developed three hernias right below his sternum, but he says he won’t let it slow him down.  He explains he’ll be just fine on the road “As long as I don’t do any kind of ab moves.”  Allman will tour throughout the U.S. until June 4th before heading overseas for a month of shows.

Low Country Blues is Allman’s first solo album in 14 years.  The CD mostly consists of covers of old blues tunes, but one new song, “Just Another Rider,” was written by Allman and Warren Haynes.
