LOS ANGELES, May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock icons Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Barry Goldberg are celebrating the chart topping debut of their second album "Pierced Arrow" which was released by 429 Records on May 6th. Produced by the trio and bassist Kevin McCormick, "Pierced Arrow"—the title of which is a riff on the American classic car of the twenties—debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart this past week as well as a solid debut on the Top 200. The all new album is a collection of original barnburners, soulful ballads and covers. The band is rounded out with drummer and Hall of Fame inductee, Chris Layton, of Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble. "Pierced Arrow" is the follow up to their debut album "Can't Get Enough"—itself a #1 blues album. The Rides are currently on a national tour.
Says Stills: "A pierced arrow refers to a notch in the feather of an arrow. When you do that and fire, you never know where it's gonna go...You'll notice it defends itself to the right. There are no more hidden meanings to this album, it's the most fun I've ever had. I've always wanted this blues album, thanks to KWS and Barry for helping me enjoy it. All we need now is a stadium full of people."
Says Shepherd: "The chemistry in this band couldn't be more obvious than in this music which also has been carried onto the stage each night in our shows. We couldn't be happier that Pierced Arrow is being embraced by our fans."
Says Goldberg: "So cool! So thrilled ROCKIN' THE BLUES!"
