Gov't Mule: new album "Heavy Load Blues" in November

Gov't Mule will release their new studio album Heavy Load Blues on November 12, their first "all blues album". Warren Haynes explains: "For me, personally, it's kind of been on my list of things to do for years. I didnt know if it was gonna be a solo album or a Gov’t Mule record. We play some traditional blues on stage from time to time and although it's usually never more than a few songs per show, our approach to the blues is unique and based on our collective chemistry as a band. This album gave us a mission. Although in some way it was ‘anything goes,’ we wanted to stay true to the spirit of the blues in a traditional sense. it's not a blues/rock record – it's a blues record. We wanted it sonically to sound different from a normal Gov’t Mule record".

Heavy Load Blues is available for pre-order (vinyl, CD, digital). They have posted the album's lead single Heavy Load on YouTube.
