Lynyrd Skynyrd has announced the track listing of their new album, Last Of A Dyin’ Breed, which is set for release on August 17.
The title track, ‘Last Of A Dyin’ Breed’, is the first single that will be released in New Zealand.
Led by core members Gary Rossington (guitar), Johnny Van Zant (vocals) and Rickey Medlocke (guitar), along with longtime drummer Michael Cartellone, Lynyrd Skynyrd has recorded an album that continues the legacy that began over 35 years ago in Jacksonville, Florida. A legacy that was halted for a decade after the 1977 plane crash that killed three band members, including Ronnie Van Zant and Steve Gaines. Since then, the band tragically lost Billy Powell, Ean Evans, Allen Collins, Leon Wilkeson and Huey Thomasson.
With a catalogue of more than 60 albums, sales beyond 30 million worldwide and their beloved classic American rock anthem ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ having over two million downloaded ringtones, Rock & Roll Hall of Famers Lynyrd Skynyrd remain a cultural icon that appeals to all generations.
Last Of A Dyin’ Breed will be released on August 17, with the single available to purchase from Friday July 13.
