The Howlin’ Brothers had a very good year in 2013, following the release of HOWL, their first nationally and internationally released album. HOWL, featuring Warren Haynes (on one track, “Big Time”), brought instant success to the band. The trio toured their brand of “old-time string country blues with an indie-rock edge” throughout the U.S. and into Canada. The majority of the 13 original songs that comprise Trouble, due out April 29, 2014, were influenced by the people they met and struggles they encountered on the road over the past year.
