New Allman Brothers Material?
The Allman Brothers Band may debut some new material this summer, according to an interview with drummer Butch Trucks. The ABB co-founder recently told ABC News Radio he believes that “by the time this year is over, there’ ll be a lot of new material.”
“I know [frontman] Gregg [Allman] and [guitarist] Warren [Haynes] really want to go back to the studio [but] I never liked the studio in the first place,” Trucks says. “It costs us more to make a CD than we can recoup in the sales, so it’s really not cost effective. If we’ve got a lot of new material and everybody wants to do [a new record], then, fine, I’ll do it.
“I kind of like the concept of, if we get a lot of new material this summer, next year we…record everything [during our ansnual residency at New York City’s] Beacon [Theatre],” he add. “Then [we] take it into the studio and let Gregg redo all the vocals or whatever, and come out with kind of a hybrid live-studio album. It would be cost effective and a hell of a lot more fun.”
The Allman Brothers Band have not debuted a new original song since “Bag End” in 2009, though the group has added several new covers and some solo project material to their repertoire. Haynes recently co-wrote a few new songs with Allman, including “Just Another Rider” from the ABB leader’s solo release Low Country Blues. Allman has also mentioned in a few interviews that he hopes to work with Low Country Blues producer T-Bone Burnett on a new Allman Brothers Band album.
