THE STEVE MILLER BAND

TO RELEASE NEW STUDIO ALBUM ON JUNE 21

FIRST EUROPEAN SHOWS IN OVER 25 YEARS IN OCTOBER

 

One of rock music’s all time greatest artists, The Steve Miller Band, will release their new studio album BINGO! on June 21 in Europe on Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records via Miller's imprint Space Cowboy Records.   Having sold more than 30 million records in a career spanning more than 40 years, The Steve Miller Band’s trademark blues-rock sound is a mainstay of classic rock radio.  His bands yearly touring extravaganza across the U.S. has become an annual event for millions of rock fans.

 

Co-produced by Miller and engineer Andy Johns (Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix), BINGO! is the first of two albums from sessions at George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch. The sessions introduce brand new collaborator Sonny Charles a veteran rhythm and blues vocalist of the Checkmates. These were also the final sessions by harmonica player and vocalist Norton Buffalo, Miller’s “partner in harmony” for 33 years, who died of cancer in October 2009.

 

BINGO! echoes Miller’s days as an apprentice on the Chicago blues scene in 1964-6, where his Goldberg-Miller Blues Band worked the same territory as the Paul Butterfield Blues Band and the Siegel-Schwall Band. Drawing from the songbooks of Jimmy Reed, T-Bone Walker, B. B. King, Lowell Fulson, Otis Rush, Jimmie Vaughan, and others, Miller and Johns transformed these classic rhythm and blues songs into monumental 21st century rock performances. They spiced some of the tracks with the Latin percussion battery of conga player Michael Carabello, founding member of Santana, and timbales ace Adrian Areas, son of Carabello’s partner from the original group, Jose “Chepito” Areas. Guitarist Joe Satriani traded solos on ‘Rock Me Baby’ and ‘Sweet Soul Vibe’ with Miller, whose brilliant guitar playing was a major feature of the sessions.

 

BINGO! will be released in 2 formats; a 10-track digipack CD and a special edition with expanded artwork plus 4 bonus tracks. The first single, ‘Hey Yeah,’ written by Jimmy Vaughn is streaming now on the band’s website www.stevemillerband.com  The album’s artwork was designed by the legendary Storm Thorgerson whose album packages for Led Zepplin and Pink Floyd are the gold standard in artistic design. The album is a fully realized mature work of a master craftsman, in a sense, “BINGO!” is an album Steve Miller has been waiting all his life to make.

 

Following a U.S. tour - in a new show designed by acclaimed Broadway director Rob Roth (“Beauty and the Beast”) - Steve Miller will make his first European appearances in more than 25 years this October.  Last seen here in 1982, these special events are bound to sell out rapidly.
