Soulive will release latest album under a new recording house and a new formation.
Jazz band Soulive is switching label again. This time, they are signed to Stax Records that will release the group's ninth album "No Place Like Soul" on July 31.
Known for a constant change of label the band will probably seek a new direction like it did under Concord Records in 2005. The probability is higher with the addition of new vocalist Toussaint.
With the new formation, the band is currently within 2007 tour schedule that started Jan 20 in Hollywood, CA and will end April 13 in New York City, NY. There will be the addition of Providence, RI date on April 20 with band The Roots and also gigs in New Orleans' Jazz & Heritage Festival immediately after.
"No Place Like Soul" is the follow up of "Breakout" (2005) that peaked #3 on Billboard's Top Contemporary Jazz Albums chart.
