The Magpie Salute—the band featuring former Black Crowes guitarists Rich Robinson and Marc Ford, plus fellow former Crowe Sven Pipien—have announced their debut album, High Water I.

Produced by Rich Robinson and recorded at Dark Horse Studios in Nashville, High Water I is set for an August 10 release via Eagle Rock Entertainment. You can check out its first single, "Send Me An Omen," below.

"'Send Me An Omen,' to me, wraps up all of the elements of this band," Robinson said about the song in a press release. "There's pure rock 'n roll juxtaposed with these pop melodies sung with a melancholy that creates this beautiful balance of surreal dark and light."

The Magpie Salute are set to hit the road this summer with a number of headlining shows and festival appearances along with shows alongside Govt. Mule, The Avett Brothers and Blackberry Smoke. You can check out their full itinerary below, along with the tracklisting for High Water I.
