Lynyrd Skynyrd announced that their new album, Last of a Dying Breed, will be released on August 21. It’s the band’s follow-up to God & Guns, which debuted in the Top 20 on the Billboard charts. Bob Marlette produced.

“It was great to get back in the studio with Bob for this new album,” guitarist Gary Rossington announced on the band's website. “We kind of went back old school this time. All of us playing together in the studio as a band, tracking songs and creating licks. We had a lot of fun and the music really flowed for us, so that’s when you know you are on to something good. We can’t wait to let the fans hear these songs and play ’em live.”

Original Black Crowes bassist Johnny Colt recently joined the Skynyrd family. “What else do you say to Medlocke, Rossington and Van Zant?" said Colt. "We’re talking southern rock royalty. We’re talking Lynyrd Skynyrd. The only thing out of my mouth was when and where!” Look for the new album artwork soon.
