The pivotal rock n’ rollers press on for their twelfth studio album Last Of A Dying Breed, with Johnny Colt (Black Crowes, Train) added on bass.

Colt was asked to join the band for this latest album by guitarist Rickey Medlocke, and Colt said in a press release, “What else do you say to Medlocke, [Gary] Rossington and [Johnny] Van Zant? We’re talking southern rock royalty.  We’re talking Lynyrd Skynyrd. The only thing out of my mouth was when and where!”

Rossington said about the new album, “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.”

2009’s God & Guns saw a resurgence in the band’s popularity, hitting the US top twenty, and they’re back with the producer of that album Bob Marlette.

Last Of A Dying Breed will be released on August 17 through Loud & Proud via Roadrunner Records.
