Royal Southern Brotherhood hits the road with 'heartsoulblood'

With Devon Allman and Cyril Neville at the helm, Royal Southern Brotherhood is taking its guitar-driven blues rock to venues in the U.S., Canada and Europe to support its new album, 'heartsoulblood.'

Royal Southern Brotherhood is heading out on tour to support its sophomore album, "heartsoulblood."

The guitar-driven, blues-rock band features Devon Allman, Cyril Neville, Mike Zito, Charlie Wooton and Yonrico Scott. Admittedly, more than a few of the band's members bear familiar names. Allman is the son of Gregg Allman; Neville is the fourth — after Arthur, Charles and Aaron — of the storied Neville Brothers of the New Orleans music scene.

"When we went into the studio on the first record, we were a bunch of musicians making a record in the studio," says Devon Allman. "On 'heartsoulblood,' we are a BAND."

The album, which was released by Ruf Records, was produced by Jim Gaines, who helmed the band's sessions for its eponymous debut album in 2012.
