Roadcase Royale

Nancy Wilson of Heart has a new band with former Prince backing vocalist Liv Warfield, Roadcase Royale, and the group is set to release its debut studio albumFirst Things First, on Sept. 22.

Roadcase Royale is a treat for Heart fans, as the group also features keyboard layer Chris Joyner and drummer Ben Smith. Guitarist Ryan Waters, known for his work with Prince, is also in the band.

"Roadcase Royale is a band I've always wanted to be in," Wilson said in a statement. "We all write and create songs as a unit. It's an inspired democracy. Liv and Ryan both bring a whole new level of magic to our new sound."

She continued, "I'm amazed after devoting my life to rock music how it now feels so brand new. That's why our first album is called First Things First."

In other news, Roadcase Royale will hit the road to promote First Things First this fall, starting with a Sept. 10 show in New York City running through an Oct. 15 stop in Oklahoma City.
