This year is shaping up to be an especially busy period for Warren Haynes and Gov’t Mule. Next month the band will release Revolution Come … Revolution Go, their first studio album in four years. “I wanted to capture that intensity that’s going on right now,” said Haynes, explaining the album’s title and overarching mood. “I’ve never seen it like this, ever.”
The group is also set to hit the road beginning May 17 for lengthy summer tour. As reported by Ultimate Classic Rock, Haynes describes Gov’t Mule as a “kind of playground” for the members of the band.
“It’s the place where we can musically explore anything we want to,” he says. “We’re excited about continuing to go in new directions. And we’re all really good friends and love playing music together. It’s a chemistry in the true sense of the word. All of our favorite rock bands talk about something that happened when this particular group of musicians played together. We all love going a million different directions. Every show is different; every record’s different.”
