Mike Campbell’s The Dirty Knobs Share Video Teaser For ‘Wreckless Abandon’ Album
The Dirty Knobs featuring Fleetwood Mac/Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell will release their debut album, Wreckless Abandon, through BMG on November 20. Campbell and company unveiled a video teaser for the LP voiced by actor Danny Trejo.
Wreckless Abandon was originally due in March before the COVID-19 pandemic led the band to postpone its release. The Dirty Knobs also rescheduled a headlining tour to 2021.
Mike Campbell wrote all 13 tracks on the forthcoming LP. The guitarist produced Wreckless Abandon with George Drakoulias. “Losing Tom was earth-shattering for me. It was a total shock,” Campbell said of Petty’s passing. “It had felt like we would be playing together forever. For a while it was hard to imagine playing in my own band again, let alone one where I’m the frontman. Tom was always my beacon. But everything I’ve been doing since Tom passed, including this album with The Dirty Knobs, is in the spirit of honoring what we did together.”
The Dirty Knobs consists of Mike Campbell, guitarist Jason Sinay, bassist Lance Morrison and drummer Matt Laug. Check out the teaser for Wreckless Abandon below:
