Heart guitarist Nancy Wilson's new group, Roadcase Royale, formed with Liv Warfield, a singer with Prince’s New Power Generation, have signed to Loud & Proud Records for the release of their debut album, First Things First, which will arrive on Sept. 22.
With Heart currently on hiatus for personal and creative reasons, Wilson noted in a press release that “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 have also announced an initial run of U.S. tour dates beginning in New York on Sept. 10 and ending in Oklahoma City on Oct. 15.
