Southern rockers Blackfoot, after an absence of 18 years from the rock scene are now working on their new album -except that not one original member is now in the band. The new line-up features Phil Shouse (lead vocals/guitar), Tim Rossi (lead vocals/guitar), Brian Carpenter (bass/vocals) and Christopher Williams (drums/vocals). Rickey Medlocke, the band's founder, with complete control over the name, not only did he hand select the new musicians, but is heavily involved in the writing and recording of the upcoming album, due for release in the autumn.
Medlocke stated: "I have spent months putting together this amazing line-up, full of explosive high energy just as it was in the early 80s. I am proud these guys represent the future of Blackfoot music and will bring it to an all new generation."
