The Black Crowes are announcing their hugely anticipated new album, "Happiness Bastards", set for worldwide release March 15th, 2024, via the band’s own Silver Arrow Records. Produced by Grammy award winning producer Jay Joyce, the project is The Black Crowes’ 10th studio album and their 1st original music in 15 years. "Happiness Bastards" is a blistering record that is both fresh, yet quintessential rock'n'roll.

The thrilling news is kicked off with the release of the riff ripping lead single "Wanting And Waiting", an exhilarating taste of what’s to come with the signature flair and attitude of one of the most vital rock bands of this generation.

2024 marks 40 years since the inception of The Black Crowes, and the Robinson Brothers are claiming this momentous year as their own. Following decades marked by sex, drugs, fights, breakups, and divorce, they are leaving their bullshit behind. Serving as a salute to their past and a celebration of the present and future, the new album includes 10 original tracks, with a very special feature from Grammy nominated superstar Lainey Wilson. While they have dealt with their share of differences over the years, they are now 2 happy bastards, with a triumphant album to show for it.

The Black Crowes frontman Chris Robinson says, “'Happiness Bastards' is our love letter to rock'n'roll. Rich and I are always writing and creating music, that has never stopped for us, and it is always where we find harmony together. This record represents that”, Rich Robinson continues, “This album is a continuation of our story as a band. Our years of experience writing and making music and touring the world are represented in this record, and we were brilliantly guided by one of the best producers in the business, Jay Joyce. I am incredibly proud of what we put together”.
