    Gov’t Mule Announce Late Summer/Fall Tour Dates

    Rock titans Gov’t Mule have released “Mr. Man,” the latest captivating cut from their forthcoming live album and film package, Bring On The Music – Live at The Capitol Theatre.

    Check out the first look and first interview with Gov’t Mule front man GRAMMY Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, producer, and revered guitarist Warren Haynes and film director Danny Clinch via Forbes. The clip for “Mr. Man” finds the band having a musical conversation with one another, going off script as they stretch the ending of the song in a way they never have before, showcasing the incredible improvisation for which Gov’t Mule is lauded. 

    Bring On The Music – Live at The Capitol Theatre will be out this summer in various configurations: the 2 CD-set, 2 separate double-vinyl packages, and digital (featuring audio from the film) will be released June 28th with the film available as part of a 2 CD/2 DVD deluxe package (featuring exclusive audio not in the film) and on Blu-ray July 19th via Provogue / Mascot Label Group.

    “This is a cool version of ‘Mr. Man’ which is a song we stopped playing for a while but recently brought back. Glad we captured this version which breaks down at the end and goes somewhere different than the usual arrangement,” shares Haynes.
