"Warpaint," The Black Crowes’ first album of all-new studio material in seven years, was independently released on the band’s own newly formed Silver Arrow Records and distributed through Megaforce/Red/SonyBMG.  It’s their first studio release since the "Lions" album in 2001 (on V2).
Produced and mixed by Paul Stacey at Allaire Studios, Woodstock, NY, the album features 11 songs, all of which were written by Christ and Rich Robinson, except “God’s Got It” by the Reverend Charlie Jackson. The album builds on the band’s trademark brew of rock, blues, country, soul and gospel.
The album’s complete track listing is: "Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution," "Walk Believer Walk," "O, Josephine," "Evergreen," "We Who See The Deep," "Locust Street," "Movin’ On Down The Line," "Wounded Bird," "God’s Got It," "There’s Gold In Them Hills," and "Whoa Mule."
Chris Robinson says the album’s title signifies "the revolution that could take place in all our souls."


The band will begin their world tour March 24 by headlining the Byron Bay Festival in Australia.  They’ll continue their down under trek—their first since 1991—through April 5 before playing special engagements in Tokyo, Amsterdam and London, and concluding with shows in Hamburg and Cologne, Germany (dates TBA).
