Heart fans are starting to get that feeling like their parents are getting a divorce.
Sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson are weathering some big-time personal issues, which has shuttered their legendary band Heart for an undetermined time.
Whereas Ann is in her sweet spot, billing herself as “Ann Wilson of Heart,” sister Nancy went ahead and started a whole new band called Roadcase Royale, their debut First Things First set to drop on September 22nd.
Brought together by Nancy Wilson and Liv Warfield, the group includes Chris Joyner, Dan Rothchild, Ben Smith and Ryan Waters.
In a press statement, Wilson said “Roadcase Royale is a band I’ve always wanted to be in. We all write and create songs as a unit. It’s an inspired democracy. Liv and Ryan bring a whole new level of magic to our new sound. I’m amazed, after devoting my life to rock music, how it now feels so brand new. That’s why our first album is called First Things First.”
Roadcase Royale has announced a US tour from September 10th to October 15th, with further dates to be added soon.
