Southern rock stalwarts Robert Jon & the Wreck have unveiled their latest track, “Pain No More,” accompanied by a down-home music video that features an up-close performance by the band.
The most recent endeavour between Bonamassa and his long-time manager Roy Weisman, Journeyman aims to assist emerging artists with recording and touring “without having to deal with the typical resistance of ‘gatekeepers’ who don’t believe or support emerging acts,” says a press release.
Co-written by Blackberry Smoke frontman/the Black Crowes touring guitarist Charlie Starr, “Pain No More” is the result of an outstanding collaboration with multiple Grammy Award-winning producer Dave Cobb (Slash, Jason Isbell, Blackberry Smoke, Rival Sons.)
“Working with Dave Cobb was incredible,” said guitarist/vocalist Robert Jon Burrison. “RCA studios was such a legendary place and Dave worked so fast that we almost didn’t even know what was happening.
“Before we knew it, we had one of the best songs we’ve ever recorded with the least stress we’ve ever had in a studio. He’s the embodiment of what it means to be a great producer."
While the collaboration is a great example of successful relationships, the song itself reflects something entirely different.
“The new single is about not being a stranger to pain and heartbreak when it comes to a relationship with another," offers Burrison.
“It’s the kind of pain that comes when the other person doesn’t treat you well, but deep down inside, you know you’re worth more.”
The new single follows the announcement of the band’s February 2023 UK Tour with special guests Meghan Parnell and Dave Barnes of Bywater Call.
