Spiritual Beggars Announces New Album "Earth Blues," 20th Anniversary Shows

Sweden's classic rock heavyweights Spiritual Beggars are currently wrapping up work on their 8th studio album, which will be entitled "Earth Blues" and is set for releas in Spring 2013 via InsideOut Music. Spiritual Beggars will celebrate the band's 20th anniversary with this release and by playing shows, including a European tour in April. Guitarist and songwriter Michael Amott comments on the album:

"We started the recording process of 'Earth Blues' with an eight day long session at 'Fat Guitar Studios' (Sweden) with knob twiddler Roberth Ekholm, a truly great dude who really knows how to capture a band jamming live, sadly a rare quality in recording engineers nowadays! We continued with some overdubs at various studios in Sweden, and it's all come together super easy this time. We're finishing up the mixes now with Staffan Karlsson at his studio in Halmstad, Sweden. Sonically, I think this might be our finest hour yet. It's a raw, heavy and honest record."

In order to promote this upcoming release as well as the band's anniversary, Spiritual Beggars has confirmed a European tour for April with support by German rockers Zodiac, as well as some European summer festivals. See below for all upcoming dates:
