Jambase – The Allman Betts Band Release ‘Pale Horse Rider’ Single

The Allman Betts Band released a new single, “Pale Horse Rider.” The track will appear on the southern rock group’s forthcoming album, Bless Your Heart, due out on August 28 via BMG.

“Pale Horse Rider” follows Bless Your Heart lead single “Magnolia Road” and features some expertly woven guitar from Devon Allman and Duane Betts, the sons of Allman Brothers Band co-founders Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts. The duo detailed the song in Rolling Stone.

“‘Pale Horse Rider’ was a really fun one to write,” Allman told RS. “Duane had this almost vertigo-inducing descending melodic pattern that was so unique. Once I started the lyric about a man feeling so lost and isolated with the world out to get him, the story just kind of wrote itself. The Wild West seemed the perfect setting to tell the tale.”

Betts described “Pale Horse Rider” as a “beautiful entanglement of guitars” and added, “it’s a new texture of our band that we get to showcase on this record.”
