"WARPAINT marks the recording debut of two new band members--second guitarist Luther Dickerson, formerly of North Mississippi Allstars, and keyboardist Adam MacDougall--who join CHRIS and RICH and drummer Steve Gorman and bassist Sven Pipien. The album--which is being independently released on the band's own newly-formed Silver Arrow Records, distributed through Megaforce/Sony Red BMG--builds compellingly on the band's trademark adventurous brew of rock, blues, country, soul and gospel.
Produced and mixed by Paul Stacey at Allaire Studios, Woodstock, NY, the album features 11 songs, all of which were written by CHRIS and RICH ROBINSON, except "God's Got It" by the Reverend Charlie Jackson. "Goodbye Daughters of the Revolution" is set as the album's first single and video; the song will arrive at radio on Monday, January 7."
