With their 40th anniversary approaching in 2015, the Bellamy Brothers aren’t slowing down. In addition to their more than 150 tour dates scheduled throughout the United States this year, they have also announced an international tour which will take them to Sri Lanka, India, Brazil, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Australia and New Caledonia.
“We head over to Sri Lanka and India next week,” David Bellamy said. ”We’ve toured in over 50 countries throughout our career but performing in these two regions is new territory for us.”
“This is shaping up to be one of our biggest international years to date,” Howard Bellamy added. “Good thing we’re used to the jet lag. We actually have a new song we’re recording now called ‘Jet Lag Journey!’”
The brothers plan to release new music in conjunction with several of their international tour stops. Recording plans for collaborations with Brazilian rock star Eduardo Araújo and Swiss rock artist Gölä are already in the works. The brothers’ first album with Gölä, BB&G: The Greatest Hits Sessions, released in 2010, debuted at No. 1 on the Swiss Music Chart and reached double-platinum sales.
The Bellamy Brothers are also planning a three-song EP and music video for release in late spring. The EP and video will serve as a teaser for the brothers’ 40th anniversary album, which is set for a spring 2015 release. The two-disc set will feature 15 new songs and 15 of their No. 1 hits.
