BROTHER CANE are commemorating their 30th Anniversary with a reissue of their critically acclaimed 1993 self-titled debut album, making it available on vinyl for the first time. In addition, the band went back into the studio with longtime collaborator and multi-platinum producer Marti Frederiksen and recorded two brand new songs. “Blinded By The Sun” and “Are You In There Anymore”, also available digitally today as well as an exclusive physical 7″ vinyl. You can listen to both BELOW.

A U.S. tour celebrating the bands history and new music is set to begin October 26 in Woodstock, GA continuing through December 2nd in Memphis, TN. More dates are expected to be announced soon, see below for the initial itinerary and full details.

Founding member Damon Johnson shared recently, “The new music is what is exciting me most out of all the good stuff happening, I LOVE these two new songs and can’t wait to play them live.” He continues, expounding on the reunion , “It was our manager, Kevin, who suggested we do this now after hearing from fans at my other shows who kept asking ‘when is BROTHER CANE coming back?’ Well we’re BACK!”

Co-founding member, Glenn Maxey echoes the same sentiment, “Seldom does a person get the chance to relive a dream that they pursued in their twenties. It’s hard to put into words. I’m just extremely grateful for the chance to play great music with great friends at this time in my life. Let’s go!”

At the heart of BROTHER CANE‘s long-awaited return to the stage are its founding members, Johnson (lead vocals, guitar) and Maxey (bass) who originally formed the band in 1991 in their hometown of Birmingham, AL. Johnson’s distinctive guitar skills, vocals, and captivating stage presence, combined with Maxey’s solid bass lines and rhythmic foundation, formed the core of the band’s signature sound. BROTHER CANE found immediate success with the release of their self-titled debut album which delivered three singles: “Got No Shame”, “That Don’t Satisfy Me” and “Hard Act to Follow” with “Got No Shame” reaching #1 on the Mainstream Rock charts earning the band U.S. tours with Aerosmith, Robert Plant and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

This highly anticipated tour promises to deliver an unforgettable experience, as they take audiences on a nostalgic journey through their extensive catalog while also introducing some exciting new material. Joining the duo for this reunion are longtime friends and fellow bandmates Jarred Pope (drums/Tom Keifer Band), Buck Johnson (keys/Aerosmith, Hollywood Vampires), and Tony Higbee (guitar/Tom Keifer Band). STONE HORSES will support on all dates with Orianthi joining on select dates.
