Blues Traveler Announces New Album Suzie Cracks the Whip

In celebration of their 25th anniversary, Blues Traveler will release their 11th studio album, Suzie Cracks the Whip, on June 26 via 429 Records. On the album, the band teams up with the powerhouse production team of Sam Hollander and Dave “Sluggo” Katz-aka S*A*M* and Sluggo (Katy Perry) and invites a slew of special guests such as Ron Sexsmith, Spin Doctor’s Chris Barron and Crystal Bowersox.

“I love these guys like my family but after writing the same way with the same people for 25 years, it was good to find a new outlet and take a different approach,” says frontman John Popper. “Likewise, S*A*M and Sluggo helped remind us about what was cool about Blues Traveler in the first place. It’s easy to forget what’s cool about yourself after so many years of being you.”

In support of the album, Blues Traveler will embark on an extensive nationwide tour including stops with the Barenaked Ladies, Cracker and Big Head Todd & The Monsters. The full list of dates can be found below.
