CALIFORNIA BREED, whose self titled debut has become one of the most critically acclaimed rock albums of 2014, have officially announced their first round of European live dates. The band will support Alter Bridge in the US before heading to Europe and will close out the run supporting SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators on their 5 UK arena dates.
Glenn Hughes and Andrew Watt have chosen ex Queens of the Stone Age/ Eagles of Death Metal drummer JOEY CASTILLO as the drummer for all upcoming dates when it became clear that Jason Bonham’s professional commitments would prevent him from being able to tour with the band. As Glenn Hughes says “We’re just excited to play live, to tour, to be in front of and with our fans. We’re very proud of our debut record and we can’t wait to share it, live and loud, with you.”

The debut lyric video from CALIFORNIA BREED, “Midnight Oil“, taken from their forthcoming debut album, was premiered by
Classic Rock Magazine in the UK today.
“It’s a refreshing animated video that really captures the lyrical concert and message of the Midnight Oil single,” reports singer Glenn Hughes. “We didn’t want to make a run-of-the-mill lyric video. The animation perfectly captures the raw energy, lyrical content and the message of what Midnight Oil is really all about… rock n roll!!”
Guitarist Andrew Watt adds, “We wanted to make a lyric video that would make people want to watch this song in addition to just listen to it, one that would highlight the bombastic grooves of the track and convey the rhythm of the message.”
The album was produced in Nashville, Tennessee by Dave Cobb, who has previously worked with Rival Sons (driving the desk on the band’s debut Pressure & Time), and with one of country music’s more recent dynasties, Waylon Jennings and son Shooter.
