Rock and roll collective Trigger Hippy has announced their return from an extended four-year hiatus, as well as a new lineup featuring founding members drummer Steve Gorman (Black Crowes) and bassist Nick Govrik, along with newcomers guitarist Ed Jurdi and vocalist Amber Woodhouse. Former members include Jackie Greene, Jimmy Herring, Joan Osborne, Audley Freed, and others.
The quartet will celebrate their return from hiatus with a summer residency at The Basement in Nashville, TN, set for July 13th, July 20th, August 4th, and August 18th. Gorman confirmed via Twitter that the band will be releasing a new album in October, which will follow up the band’s 2014 self-titled debut LP. Gorman added that Trigger Hippy will announce “shows everywhere else soon.”

In April, Gorman announced a forthcoming, 288-page memoir, Hard To Handle: The Life & Death Of The Black Crowes, due out on September 24th via Da Capo Press. Gorman recruited journalist Steven Hyden to help co-write the forthcoming book. Gorman and Hyden cover The Black Crowes’ early days and rise to fame, drama between the band’s three founding members ahead of their 25th anniversary, and much more.
Tickets for Trigger Hippy’s Nashville residency go on sale this Friday, June 21st at 10 a.m. (CST) here.
