Spiritual Beggars Reveals New Album "Earth Blues" Artwork

Sweden's classic rock heavyweights Spiritual Beggars recently finished work on their 8th studio album, "Earth Blues," which celebrates their 20th anniversary as band. The album will be released via InsideOut Music on April 15th in Europe and April 16th in North America.

Spiritual Beggar's guitarist and songwriter Michael Amott comments about the "Earth Blues" artwork:

"I had the idea for this artwork from my time as a child, seeing posters of two young lovers watching a romantic sunset on the beach, just your typical tacky bedroom art in the 70's really...Also, growing up in what is now referred to with some nostalgia as 'The Atomic Age' - the threat of nuclear war was always looming over our heads it seemed. I wanted to combine these two images of my youth in one paradoxical image and Per Wiberg of Hippograffix (and SPIRITUAL BEGGARS keyboardist) really managed to capture the melancholic feeling perfectly. 'Earth Blues,' indeed."

In order to promote this upcoming release as well as the band's anniversary, Spiritual Beggars has confirmed some summer festival appearances, in addition to a European tour in April with support by German rockers Zodiac.
