New CD Release Date Announced
The Snake King is scheduled to be released on January 26, 2018.
Andrew McNiece, owner of the Melodicrock website, tweeted "Rick Springfield's blues album "The Snake King" out January 26 via Frontiers Worldwide" with what appears to be the cover for the album.
The highly-anticipated album is Rick's first blues album and he says "has the potential to put the final nail in the old teenybopper coffin". The release date is two months ahead of the March 2018 time frame that was originally expected.
Rick started mentioning "The Snake King" as the title of his new album earlier this year and has been using guitar picks with the name on it for several months. There have been a few social media posts recently of Rick, Matty and the band in the studio working on "the final touches" for the album. Last week several social media posts of Rick at a photo shoot at the Joshua Tree National Park in California have stirred excitement among Rick's dedicated fans.
