Blackberry Smoke has released “Believe You Me,”  the song is from the band’s new album, Like An Arrow, which will be released October 14 on 3 Legged Records via Thirty Tigers and is now available for pre-order at the band’s website and at iTunes.

Already receiving acclaim, Rolling Stone recently premiered the album’s lead track, “Waiting For The Thunder,” praising, “Country-Rock’s most ferocious live band…Blackberry Smoke’s often spontaneous concerts evoke the spirit of the Allman Brothers Band.” Both “Waiting for the Thunder” and “Believe You Me” are available as instant downloads with each digital pre-order.

Recorded just outside of the band’s native Atlanta at The Quarry Recording Studio in Kennesaw, GA, the 12-track album was self-produced and features special guest Gregg Allman on the album’s closing track, “Free On The Wing.”

Of the album, band-member Charlie Starr comments,

“This album is the self-produced culmination of 15 years of trying to plant our flag in the musical landscape. We couldn’t be more proud of it.”

Since their debut in 2001, the 5-piece band—consisting of Starr (lead vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards)—has released four full-length studio albums, including their most recent, 2015’s Holding All the Roses, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart and #8 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart.

Known for their impressive live performances, Blackberry Smoke has toured relentlessly, building a strong and loyal community of fans. In addition to performing hundreds of headlining shows across the country each year, the band has also toured with artists including Zac Brown Band, Eric Church and ZZ Top. The group will continue their extensive nationwide tour throughout the summer and fall in celebration of the release. See below for complete details.

Beloved by fans, critics and fellow musicians, the band has performed on “The Tonight Show” and “Conan” and received widespread praise from publications including The New York Times, Billboard, the Washington Post and American Songwriter.
