Zac Brown Band announces new music

Tuesday, July 13, 2010 – Zac Brown Band will release 'You Get What You Give,' the second major label studio album from on Sept. 21.

The album features songs that the band has been testing on the road over the past year. Among the songs are the somber piano-driven Colder Weather, the reggae-leaning, jam-inducing Who Knows, and a harmony-laced lesson on the merits of chasing after love As She's Walking Away.

Brown said the new album "is representative of where we are right now. It combines elements of our southern rock and country roots, but also stays true to our jam-band style musicianship from the live show."

Zac Brown Band is touring throughout the summer and joining Dave Matthews Band on several remaining dates:

July 16-17 - Citi Field - New York

July 23 - Nationals Park - Washington, DC

'You Get What You Give" is the follow up to the band's double platinum-certified, major label debut '"The Foundation" (Atlantic), which is one of Billboard's Top 20 albums of 2009 and features the band's first four number one singles.

Zac Brown Band is: singer/guitarist Zac Brown, violinist/singer Jimmy De Martini, bassist/singer John Hopkins, guitarist/organist Coy Bowles, multi-instrumentalist/singer Clay Cook and drummer Chris Fryar.

CD review - Jekyll + Hyde Fans looking for the Zac Brown Band of 2005 won't find it in "Jekyll + Hyde" - there's nothing but an aftertaste of the Georgia group's chicken-fried origins. That might be why the album's name is so appropriate. Fans have gotten to know the country-folk band, but a deviant creeps in on all 16 tracks of its fourth album. And, like the classic story, Hyde stands out as more interesting. It hits hard, too. The opener, "Beautiful Drug," has an electric-pop ...
CD review - Uncaged Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" album opens with Jump Right In, which finds singer/bandleader Brown admonishing, "Let the music pull you in," which might just be Brown's motto. He's all about forgetting the cares of the day and giving in wholeheartedly to the magnetic attraction of good music. Although Brown writes, sings and plays well throughout, there are nevertheless few truly standout tracks or unexpected surprises on "Uncaged." With that said, ...
