Nancy Wilson’s New Band Set To Release Debut Album

By: Renee Grant

Rocker Nancy Wilson of Heart has formed a new band, Roadcase Royale, and they are set to release their debut album, titled First Things First, on September 22nd (2017).

The lineup features plenty of heavy hitters, including Heart members Chris Joyner, Dan Rothchild, and Ben Smith, as well as Liv Warfield, a former member of Prince‘s iconic band the New Power Generation. Warfield’s collaborator, guitarist Ryan Waters, is also a part of the supergroup. The ensemble is signed to Loud & Proud Records for the release.

Earlier this year, the band released two songs, Get Loud and Not Giving Up.

Heart invited Warfield and Waters to open for them in 2015 and the idea to form a new band was born. “[Warfield] and I were like, ‘We should try to do something together,’ because we’re both just excited about music,” Wilson tells Ultimate Classic Rock. “We said, ‘Let’s be the people that actually do something that they want to do, instead of just say that they’re gonna do it, and never do it.’ Because Ann had been out doing her own Ann Wilson thing, I figured [I could] do something musical and fun and interesting and inspiring and exciting.”

Wilson also notes in a recent press release: “Roadcase Royale is a band I’ve always wanted to be in. We all write and create songs as a unit. It’s an inspired democracy. Liv and Ryan both bring a whole new level of magic to our new sound. I’m amazed after devoting my life to rock music how it now feels so brand new. That’s why our first album is called First Things First.”

The new band has also announced U.S. tour dates, beginning this September (2017) in New York at the Gramercy Theatre. See the run of dates below, and get more information here.
