The Dynamites: Album/Tour

The Dynamites Featuring Charles Walker Announce Fall Tour Dates
The Band's New Album, Burn It Down, Will Be Released September 15

The Dynamites Featuring Charles Walker
Soul music is here to stay, and it's still evolving - The Dynamites Featuring Charles Walker are living proof. Nashville's white-hot deep funk band will release their highly anticipated second studio album, Burn It Down, on September 15. The band will also tour this fall in support of the album.

Charles Walker doesn't imitate, emulate or try to resuscitate a bygone nostalgic era. He is soul, the real deal, still carrying the flaming torch of funk and soul lit back in the late-'60s at the Apollo Theater where he opened up for icons like James Brown and Wilson Pickett. What's more, the fresh songwriting approach of Bill Elder, a.k.a. Leo Black, continues to push the deep funk envelope, propelling Walker to sound equally at home singing a scorching hot, up-tempo rocker as he does on a heart wrenching 1960s-style soul ballad.

An essential authenticity comes across in The Dynamites music and message. Without a doubt, Burn it Down acknowledges that not all is right in the world, but it doesn't get stuck there. Times might be rough and people might be grumbling about doomsday, but Charles Walker and The Dynamites are here to remind us that there is still reason to celebrate.
