Ben Harper and Relentless7 announce tour dates

First it was the Blind Boys of Alabama, then it was the Innocent Criminals. Now, Ben Harper has orchestrated another album with his latest musical entourage, Relentless7. In promotion of their debut album, Harper and Relentless7 have announced a packed schedule of club dates and summer festivals.

Harper's new blues-rock troupe will be hitting the dusty tour trail in May, just months on the heels of its recent SXSW debut. They plan on hitting up Bonnaroo and Sasquatch!, and will even make a stop at Pete Seeger's birthday party

Ben Harper and Relentless7 will release their debut album, White Lies for Dark Times, on May 5. The single, "Shimmer and Shine," is currently available on iTunes, and the video is up on the band's website.
