The Doobie Brothers Are Back!

The Doobie Brothers Are Back!

The Doobie Brothers Are Back! Coming out with a New Album on October 1st. Furthermore, it’s going to be their 15th studio album. Furthermore, it’s called “LIBERTÉ”. Also, it’s the iconic band’s first record since the star-studded “Southbound” in 2014 and will be the first with new originals since “World Gone Crazy” (2010). Featuring Tom Johnston, Pat Simmons, and John McFee.

New EP Coming Soon!

Alongside the announcement, the Doobies are also putting out The Doobie Brothers EP. Which is a four-song sampler of the forthcoming record. Complete with classic Johnston romps, the band’s signature harmonies, and a level of songcraft equally as elevated and sharp as any of their output, the EP is a sign that the Doobies are still a rock’n’roll tour de force.

The new music comes right as the Doobie Brothers are embarking on a 49-date tour commemorating the band’s 50th anniversary—the shows also see Johnston, Simmons, McFee, and Michael McDonald reuniting for their first tour together in 25 years. In the meantime, check out their tour dates and a recent “live” performance of “Takin’ It To The Streets” below:

They’re an American rock band from San Jose, California, known for their flexibility in performing across numerous genres and their vocal harmonies. Active for five decades. Furthermore, it’s another chance to see them perform again with an upcoming tour.
