Black Crowe’s Rich Robinson Preps New Solo Album
Black Crowe’s guitarist Rich Robinson is set to release his third solo album. Titled The Ceaseless Sight, the album will be issued in the spring of 2014 by The End Records, a Brooklyn-based indie label that’s home to such artists as Cradle of Filth, Badly Drawn Boy, Anvil and Fatboy Slim.
Robin apparently chose the label in part because of his high regard for The End founder Andreas Katsambas. “[Katsambas] is a long time music fan and has some very forward ideas on how to get music out there,” Robinson told Billboard, “but more importantly for me, [he knows] how to allow the artist to create pure music without the inevitable ‘commercial versus art’ clash that comes from a more traditional approach. All of Andreas' team shares these qualities.”
Robinson has been on the road this year with the Black Crowes, as part of the band’s “Lay Down with Number 13” world tour. The guitarist will undertake a U.S. tour in 2014 in support of The Ceaseless Sight.
