The upcoming album, ‘Wonderful Wonderful’ will be the band’s first release since their hugely successful ‘Battle Born’ in 2012.
The band recently debuted the brand new video for the new single, “The Man”, which is the first sample of ‘Wonderful Wonderful’. It was directed by Tim Mattia in Las Vegas, the birthplace of the band. The album was also recorded and produced in Las Vegas, with producer Jacknife Lee.
The surprise news of the tour comes after the band performed a surprise set at Glastonbury. Their electrifying set was their first return to the festival since 2007.
The new LP will feature anthems that made the band one of the most beloved and successful rock bands. It is also said to be ‘the band’s most sonically forward-thinking record yet’.
