(A UK pressing of the vinyl version is also underway, more details soon…)
Fans can get an early listen to the dynamic title track and accompanying video HERE. This live performance clip features behind-the-scenes footage taken during TTB’s three-night run at the Tokyo Dome City Hall – part of the 12-member US band’s world tour in support of latest studio album, Signs (2019).
The High & Mighty EP contains three tracks from the Signs recording sessions that did not appear on the album, along with an inspired live version of one of Signs’ standout songs, ‘Shame’, recorded at the Chicago Theater in January 2018. Previously unreleased tracks include two new original songs: ‘High & Mighty’, written by DerekTrucks & long-time collaborator Doyle Bramhall II, plus the unique waltz-tempo-ed ‘All You Can Do’ from TTB’s own talented songwriter, Mike Mattison.
Also previously unreleased is the band’s take on Scott Boyer’s beautiful ballad, ‘All My Friends’, which Greg Allman recorded for his 1973 debut solo album, Laid Back. The sad loss of Allman, as well as TTB mentors Butch Trucks, Colonel Bruce Hampton, Leon Russell & Boyer himself, impacted on much of the band’s song-writing during the making of Signs, inspiring them to cover ‘All My Friends’ in their memory.
Later this month, the band will kick off their ninth annual multi-night residency at NYC’s storied Beacon Theatre – this six-night run is a highly anticipated New York tradition, drawing fans from all over the country.
Now ten years in, Tedeschi Trucks Band have solidified their reputation as one of the premier live bands on the road today. With increased demand from a dedicated and growing fan-base, these multiple-night, sold-out residencies have become a staple of their heavy touring schedule. In addition, they recently gave a pair of historic performances in Bethel, New York, on the 50th Anniversary weekend of Woodstock, and at the Lockn’ Music Festival, where as headliners they played Derek and the Dominoes legendary album Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs with Trey Anastasio.
After the Beacon shows in the autumn, TTBSigns tour continues with US dates in November, followed by a one-night-only performance at SEE Wembley Arena in London on February 1st 2020 – the band’s sole European outing next year, driven by overwhelming public demand, with support from Blackberry Smoke who have recently announced the release of their new concert film “Homecoming – Live in Atlanta” available November 15th.
