Sweden’s classic rock heavyweights SPIRITUAL BEGGARS recently wrapped up work on their 8th studio album release, “Earth Blues”, which celebrates their 20th anniversary as band. The album will be released via InsideOutMusic on April 15th, 2013 Europe and April 16th in North America. 
 
The artwork for “Earth Blues” has now been unveiled and SPIRITUAL BEGGARS’ 
guitarist and songwriter Michael Amott comments as follows: 
 
"I had the idea for this artwork from my time as a child, seeing posters of two young lovers watching a romantic sunset on the beach, just your typical tacky bedroom art in the 70's really… Also, growing up in what is now now referred to with some nostalgia as 'The Atomic Age' - the threat of nuclear war was always looming over our heads it seemed. I wanted to combine these two images of my youth in one paradoxical image and Per Wiberg of Hippograffix (and Spiritual Beggars keyboardist) really managed to capture the melancholic feeling perfectly. Earth Blues, indeed."
In order to promote this upcoming release as well as the band’s anniversary, SPIRITUAL BEGGARS have confirmed a European tour for April with support by German rockers ZODIAC as well as some European summer festivals. Here are the exact dates announced so far:
