Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced that their new album, Last of a Dying Breed, will be released on August 21. It’s the band’s follow-up to 2009’s God & Guns, which debuted in the Top 20 on the Billboard charts, according to Blabbermouth. As with God & Guns, the album is being produced by Bob Marlette.
“It was great to get back in the studio with Bob for this new album,” guitarist Gary Rossington said. “We kind of went back old school this time. All of us playing together in the studio as a band, tracking songs and creating licks. We had a lot of fun and the music really flowed for us, so that’s when you know you are on to something good. We can’t wait to let the fans hear these songs and play ’em live.”
The current version of Skynyrd is led by Les Paul-playing legend Rossington, along with vocalist Johnny Van Zant and guitarist Rickey Medlocke.
