ChessBoxer Announces Debut EP And Tour With Warren Haynes


Last month Warren Haynes announced the formation of the Ashes & Dust Band whose members include Nashville-based Americana trio ChessBoxer. Today ChessBoxer have announced the release of their debut, Apollo EP, due September 25 from 333 Entertainment.

Produced by Charlie Peacock (Civil Wars, Switchfoot), the EP will serve as a preview to the trio’s forthcoming full-length album due in early 2016. “The Apollo EP is a collection of four pieces from our upcoming debut album we’ve recorded with Charlie Peacock,” said ChessBoxer’s Ross Holmes. “We’re excited to share a few of these new songs. Each one is its own journey and hopefully means something special and different with each listen.”

ChessBoxer will not only back Warren Haynes on his fall tour as part of the Ashes & Dust Band, but they will also open each show. “Warren Haynes is the Supreme Godfather of jam/exploration bands around the world and to have the opportunity to join him on tour is truly an honor,” continues Holmes. “We can hardly wait to start performing his new material, this is new territory for all of us to create and converse in!”
