Blackberry Smoke

Dates: February 23, 2018

Blackberry Smoke has never been a band that stands still. Whether pursuing the dream by logging hundreds of thousands of miles on America’s highways and abroad or relentlessly exploring the many facets of its most unique art form, the Atlanta quintet is always on the move.

The songs on Blackberry Smoke’s sixth album, Like an Arrow, due October14, show just how far this authentic American rock band has come as the accomplished group of musicians tacklesa diverse set of new ideas, sounds and territories, long after most bands with half the success might have settled into a well-worn groove.“We’re all likeminded in that we all want to explore,” singer and principal songwriter Charlie Starr said. “There’s just no way we could make the same record over and over again, though there are some fans who would like us to. That’s just way too formulaic. If the Beatles or Led Zeppelin did that, we wouldn’t love them as much.”
