Pokey LaFarge has announced news of his hotly-tipped new album Manic Revelations, which will be out May 19th
In addition, he has unveiled the first single from the record, in the form of Riot In The Streets….
Speaking of the track Pokey says, ‘‘It is a tough thing to write about, but as a citizen of St. Louis and as an artist, I had to say something. Hopefully this song does more good than bad and, ultimately, gets the dialogue started. Although it’s also important to not forget the peaceful protests and those that spread the message of love in the pursuit of justice and equality, this particular song is about people being marginalized and brought to the brink. It was only a matter of time before they fight back. I hope you feel that tension in the song—even from the first bass click”
Pokey and his longtime band will also embark on an extensive tour in support of the album – more information will be announced shortly!
