Dylan LeBlanc has shared ‘Honor Among Thieves’, the new song taken from his upcoming album Renegade, released 7th June

He states: “’Honor Among Thieves’ is a song about remembering where we came from as a country and as a people, especially when we put people behind bars and take their children for trying to seek a better life for themselves”

Also out today is the song’s official performance video, which was filmed at the legendary FAME Studio’s in Muscle Shoals, AL. Watch below…

This video acted as a homecoming for LeBlanc, who began working at FAME Studios at the age of sixteen and where he later recorded his own music. Of the experience, LeBlanc comments, “It was surreal and brought me back to a time and place that I had almost forgotten. The only place where time always seems to stand still”

Produced by Grammy-Award winning Dave Cobb (Brandi Carlile, Chris Stapleton), the album was recorded at Nashville’s RCA Studio A and features ten new songs along with LeBlanc’s longtime band, The Pollies. Of the album, LeBlanc comments, “I wanted to write the same type of songs that matched the atmosphere the band and I were bringing live. So, I started with ‘Renegade,’ which was fitting since I felt myself going in a new, more intense direction with this record. In the studio, I let go almost absolutely and let Dave Cobb do his work. It was a different experience for me—how focused Cobb was and how quickly we would get live takes down, mostly in one or two takes and never more than three. It left me spinning at how quickly it all came together. Over the course of ten days Renegade was complete and ready for mastering. And I couldn’t be more excited to share it with you”

In celebration of the release, LeBlanc will embark on an extensive headline UK and European tour this summer, including shows at London’s Omeara, Paris’s Les Etoiles and Berlin’s Privatclub among others. See below for a complete tour itinerary…
