“With RICHARDS/CRANE we made something out of nothing. It's an East Coast/West Coast marriage. Now it's time to share it with the world.” – Whitfield Crane

RICHARDS/CRANE, a new project birthed from UGLY KID JOE frontman Whitfield Crane and guitarist/vocalist Lee Richards (ANOTHER ANIMAL, GODSMACK, DROPBOX), are preparing for the official release of their debut album in North America via Metalville/UKJ Records June 24.

The self-titled effort will feature a collection of heartfelt, stripped down songs including the single “Black & White” featuring Myles Kennedy (ALTER BRIDGE, SLASH).

Produced by Dave Fortman (SLIPKNOT, GODSMACK, EVANESCENCE), who also added additional electric guitar, drummer Shannon Larkin (GODSMACK, UGLY KID JOE) and bassist Jim Preziosa (DROPBOX) also appear on the album.

In addition to the stunning performance by Myles Kennedy, who duets with Crane on the first single, guest vocals on the album include classical Indian artist Vishal Vaid, who has performed with the likes of Anoushka Shankar, Bill Laswell, Michael Franti and Karsh Kale.

Richards recalls, "This project came together on the heels of the ANOTHER ANIMAL project which is where Whitfield and I first connected. We had written a bunch of acoustic tracks while on tour as the rest of the guys went back to the GODSMACK camp Whitfield and I thought it would be a great time to record an acoustic based album.”

The video for “Black & White”, shot by director Dan Sturgess (BUTCHER BABIES, SKINDRED, COAL CHAMBER), was filmed on the streets of London and backstage at the Download festival in June 2014. The video features star-studded cameos from the likes of Steel Panther, Benji Webbe (Skindred), Phil Anselmo, Dee Snider, Chris Jericho, Dave ‘Snake’ Sabo and Myles Kennedy to name but a few.

Richards adds, “If I had to describe this record I would definitely say it has sort of a 70’s vibe. To me music invokes memories and this record reminds me of the sounds of my childhood riding around with my mom and grandma with all this amazing music around me. As Whitfield and I have both been involved with heavier projects we've amassed a ton of songs that not necessarily fit the bands we were involved with and I couldn't be happier that these songs finally breathe life.”
